The Volunteer Center has been empowering people for social good since 1983.

The Volunteer Center was founded by a group of visionaries led by Sharon Ziegler. These leaders imagined a single place that connected volunteers with local for-purpose organizations. Today, our passion for matching volunteers with nonprofits in the community continues to be the central focus for our organization, and our programs have grown to reflect our commitment to the community.

While each of our programs is completely unique, they share a simple, but powerful message: it’s really quite simple to do good. When you volunteer through the Volunteer Center, you are supporting an entire community. You are helping local nonprofits thrive and making a difference right here at home.
