How to Help

Make a Donation:

We are 100% volunteer staffed, receive no funding, and have no paid positions. We gladly accept:  

*Monetary Donations (via our PayPal link on the left to sponsor a cake)

*Gift Cards to Make It Sweet, Michael’s, Hobby Lobby, Party City, WalMart, or HEB

*Baking and Decorating Supplies -Click here for the list of items needed.

Gather Supplies for Us:

At your next birthday party/office party/charity fundraiser event, hold a “Supplies Drive” for us! Invite guests to bring baking and decorating supplies. (See Wish List of items above.) It’s great fun for both kids and adults to shop for these items! Then just email president@bakeawishaustin.org and we will pick them up and distribute them to our volunteer bakers. Thank you!

Sign Up as a Volunteer Baker:

To be a volunteer baker, you need a few basic skills such as being able to make a homemade buttercream, ice a cake smooth, use a pastry bag to pipe a simple border and write on a cake, and use cake boards and cake boxes to properly package your delivery. This FAQ DOCUMENT should answer most of the questions you have about volunteering.
Download the volunteer application FROM HERE.
When you have filled out the application, please email it to volunteer@bakeawishaustin.org.  Please allow 7-10 days for processing.  (Remember, we are all volunteers too.)
Keep in mind that the majority of our recipients are children that have been neglected, abused, or abandoned; to help protect those at the agencies we serve, you will need to scan and send a copy of your current passport or driver’s license along with your application.  Also, we cannot accept volunteers that (1) are registered sex offendors or that have been charged with or convicted of crimes against children, (2) have one or more DWI/DUI convictions, (3) have a drug-related conviction, or (4) have any type of felony conviction.
