How To Become A Volunteer

Volunteers are key to the Foundation's ability to maintain and operate the Hemingway Birthplace Home and Foundation programming. We need volunteers to help us:

  • Greet visitors and take admission

  • Conduct tours

  • Prepare mailings and newsletters

  • Answer inquiries

  • Support our annual programming (Hemingway Birthday, Fundraisers, Author Lectures, Performances, etc.


Our volunteers tell us that supporting the Ernest Hemingway Foundation of Oak Park is personally gratifying because they are giving back to the community and supporting the Foundation's mission. Some of the benefits of working for the Foundation are meeting people who share your same values and interests, growing intellectually, and learning more about Hemingway and his family. Many of our volunteers have supported the Foundation for more than 10 years. We encourage you to join our team. If you have any questions, email us at volunteer@ehfop.orgOr you can click the volunteer application below, and we will contact you with more information.
