Overview

The many benefits of volunteering.

Whatever your skills, interest, or time availability, chances are there is a volunteer opportunity just right for you at Montalvo!

Montalvo hosts events and programs year-round, many on evenings and weekends. As a volunteer, you will have the opportunity to meet new friends, build professional relationships, and have fun while contributing to your community. In addition, volunteers receive various awards and recognition throughout the year, as well as discounts on select purchases at events. Most importantly, however, you will have the satisfaction that comes with supporting Montalvo in its mission to support the arts in Silicon Valley.

Service Group

Join to help with important fundraising and volunteering efforts.

The Montalvo Service Group is the auxiliary that has supported Montalvo Arts Center, in Saratoga, since 1954. MSG’s fund-raising and volunteer service hours have made invaluable contributions to the upkeep of Montalvo Arts Center and its educational programs.

MSG fundraising events:

  • Mother’s Day Brunch – held annually on the 2nd Sunday in May. Many spend this day with their family for a memorable feast.
  • Summer Luncheons on the Villa’s Veranda – our guests enjoy the beautiful setting and delicious food each Wednesday in the months August and September. 
  • See the Villa in her holiday splendor at Yuletide.
  • Visit our on-site Sewing Boutique

Other MSG Activities:

  • As Education and Outreach volunteers, we greet and host elementary school age children on their field trips to see shows in the Carriage House Theatre. 
  • Gourmet Dinner Committee prepares and serves up a delightful dinner to the lucky Donation Drawing winner for up to 10 people. Drawings are held 3-4 times per year.
  • Hiking: explore the Art Center’s 175 acres with hiking trails, and the surrounding neighborhood.
  • Make jams: delicious preserves are made from seasonal fruits.
  • Luncheons with guest speakers.
  • Membership Teas and Luncheons sponsored by our Board and members.
  • Sewing Group: meets weekly; made boutique items are sold during the Summer Luncheons and at the Yuletide Marketplace.
  • Social meet ups and field trips.

How to join the Montalvo Service Group:

At the beginning of each year, we open up to new volunteers interested in becoming members. There are many Members-Only social events and meetings with guest speakers, where luncheons follow. This is a place where enduring friendships are made and the time spent at Montalvo has a special magic.
