Fairfax Volunteers is a town-sponsored group whose mission is to foster good will in the Town of Fairfax. We plan events and undertake projects to strengthen the community, improve town safety and awareness, and to make living in Fairfax special. Volunteers not only help the community, but we meet our neighbors, make new friends, and have a lot of fun!


  •  Sign up for our Email Newsletter – The newsletter comes out about once a month, with updates on Town events, information from local safety organizations like Get Ready Marin, and other fun and useful tidbits.
  • Most importantly, you can Volunteer for an event. Our event registration website has events from many Town organizations, like Sustainable Fairfax, F.O.C.A.S., and more!

We also partner with organizations to promote events, recruit volunteers, and help with venue sponsorship. Contact us if you are planning a community event and would like our help.
