The WIFC has a whole new Stipend Program that will benefit local organizations through volunteer hours. Volunteer with us and we will allocate stipend funds on your behalf to a local organization of your choice.
· We have allotted $15,000 in stipend funds to local organizations for volunteerism at four WIFC events
· For each volunteer shift, a portion of those funds will be allocated back to the non-profit community group or sports organization of your choice
· We have a variety of positions available, including boat driver, marshalling assistant, boat holder, parking assistant, as well as score keeping and time keeping for our World Championship in Canoe Polo
· The more shifts you take on, the more funds you’ll earn

· Lunch is provided for all shifts!
