Volunteers play a critical role in helping the CHEO Foundation support the important work being done at CHEO. Volunteers help out in so many ways, including assisting in a variety of CHEO Foundation special events, general administrative support and bringing delight to children and families by donning the CHEO Bear mascot costume. The CHEO Foundation is grateful for our generous community of volunteers and we thank you for your donation of time, positive energy and commitment to enriching the lives of children and youth.

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, all recruitment for volunteer programs and related activities are paused until further notice. Every single one of our volunteers makes a meaningful contribution to support the CHEO Foundation. Please know that the suspension of volunteer recruitment is just for now, not forever, and we look forward to resuming volunteer activities in the future. Please continue to monitor our website for updates on when volunteer opportunities will resume.

If you have questions please feel free to email [email protected].
