Volunteer at Meher Mount

At one point Agnes Baron told Meher Baba, “If you want me to take care of Meher Mount, I will keep it for you through hell, fire and damnation!” Meher Baba replied that she should keep it for Him by all means, and He sent His love.

Any of these volunteer opportunities can be fulfilled in the comfort of your own home.

  • Help share Meher Baba’s life and words. Research specific topics related to Avatar Meher Baba's life and words for special days in His remembrance for the Story Blog, email communications and social media.

  • Help create Meher Mount’s historical record. The overview of Meher Mount’s history is documented, but it needs details to create the full and accurate story. Help search for, compile and interpret documents — letters, property records, news accounts, photographs and more — related to Meher Mount's history. The ideal is to create a booklet of Meher Mount’s history as well as publish stories for the Story Blog, email communications and social media.

  • Help boost Meher Mount’s social media activity and results. Social media continues to grow and reach those interested in learning more about spirituality, Avatar Meher Baba and the places dedicated to Him. This is an opportunity to learn more about using social media and/or use your existing social media skills to spread Meher Baba’s name and Meher Mount’s role as a place of universal pilgrimage. Focus on one or several social media channels: Instagram, YouTube, Facebook and LinkedIn.

  • Help Meher Mount raise money to preserve this sacred place. There are many avenues to assist with fundraising — creating social media fundraisers, managing the Sustainers’ Circle, major donor stewardship, planned giving, the Annual Fund Campaign, managing the annual phonathon. These opportunities require different skill sets ranging from record keeping, to writing, to organizing, to reaching out to individual donors. You can find the fundraising activity that best fits your skills and preferences.
