Tay-bandz is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to raising awareness of and funding for pediatric cancer research. The Taylor Matthews Foundation – originally known as tay-bandz – was founded by Taylor Matthews who was diagnosed with cancer at age 11. While fighting her own battle, Taylor never stopped looking for ways to bring attention to this sorely underfunded health crisis. The Taylor Matthews Foundation funds innovative research and treatments that can reach sick children immediately, improve outcomes, and reduce the long-term survivorship side effects associated with pediatric cancer. Taylor lost her battle when she was 16 years old. The Taylor Matthews Foundation honors Taylor’s memory and continues her fight to stop the tragic loss of life from this merciless disease. Poor funding, insufficient research and development, and miles of bureaucratic red tape have all stood in the way of treating kids quickly and successfully. We will never stop pushing the boundaries of conventional therapies, dated public policy, and the logjams that keep good drugs in the lab and out of the clinic.


Through our volunteer program, we are looking for talented young people passionate about helping children by bringing awareness to the work we do by growing our online social media presence. This is an unpaid, volunteer position. If you are a college student, we can provide college credit. This will be a fantastic opportunity to gain experience working at a nonprofit and understanding the importance of marketing towards fundraising efforts.  


*Please note this volunteer opportunity will be fully remote and requires that you have access to a reliable computer/internet and phone 



Volunteers will work closely with our president and the board member who manages digital marketing for the foundation. We are asking for a maximum of 10 hours per week, and are flexible on what days and times. Positions are for fall/spring semesters or summer. For more information about the Taylor Matthews Foundation, please visit our website at taylormatthewsfoundation.org.
