The Chaminade family spirit exists because of the time, effort and service that our volunteers demonstrate every day. There are many volunteer opportunities to fit a wide variety of skills and schedules. Volunteering is not only a meaningful way to support Chaminade and meet new friends, it is a way to show your student that you are committed to his or her education.

Both Fernando and Nicole are willing to go the extra mile. Their commitment to Chaminade is unconditional, and they exemplify what it means to be proud Chaminade parents!

  • Dave Dumas

    Father of William ’19 and Andrew ’22

    Dave is a dependable, dedicated, and fun volunteer. He has volunteered for many years with the Phonathon, enjoying the challenging task of calling parents to ask for their financial support of the annual Chaminade Fund. A key leader, Dave sets the bar high for other parent volunteers; he never says “no” but rather, “how can I help.” At the first EagleFest, which was held this past April, he helped wherever he was needed, always with a smile and exuding positivity. Dave, you are a true proud Chaminade parent and volunteer – thank you for your many years of service!

  • Adam and Karen Friedman

    Parents of Julian ’20 and Liam ’22

    Adam and Karen Friedman have been all-star volunteers since they arrived at Chaminade in 2014. As Presidential Ambassadors, they fearlessly called other parents to garner financial support for Chaminade. In 2017, Karen chaired the Gala auction committee, helping raise close to $100,000 in the online and silent auctions. In 2019, Karen co-chaired the Holly Berry Luncheon and Boutique, which raised over $15,000 for the Campus Life Fund. All this led to Karen’s big moment, co-chairing the 2021 Gala. Karen and her co-chair Lori Shroyer had the vision and determination to make the Gala happen, despite a global pandemic. Additionally, Karen has supported the middle school choral program and the high school drama program – truly a Drama Mama! Both Adam and Karen bring boundless energy and joy to their work, and we are grateful for their support.
