Volunteering Made Easy, Impact Made Forever

Volunteering Made Easy

United Way of Central Minnesota helps bring our community hallmark-type events that engage volunteers with our greatest needs. These annual volunteer opportunities offer a nice framework for companies to go beyond Workplace Giving and connect their culture with immediate impact. It’s also a great way for families, service groups, churches, or anyone looking to benefit from getting involved locally to help drive change.

Every task force has a headquarters and rallying point. United Way of Central Minnesota is no different. Our Volunteer Action Center offers volunteers a home base for all volunteer efforts. It’s a central hub for connecting with other volunteers or hosting events.

Our opportunities for individuals to serve on boards are a great way to call on people’s greatest strengths and natural interests while at the same time, benefiting some of our organization’s greatest needs. From event planning to capital fundraising to affinity group specialty programming, our committees are wide and diverse and always looking for support.
