Why does Volunteer Kalamazoo throw a party every year? Eat Drink Give IS a fundraising event for Volunteer Kalamazoo. 2014 marks the 9th year for our party, formerly called Grape Expectations. The money raised through ticket sales, sponsorships, contributions from restaurant and beverage sponsors, raffle tickets, the silent auction, after party tickets and donations made at the party itself go to support the great work of Volunteer Kalamazoo. This party generates about ten percent of the total annual revenue needed to fund Volunteer Kalamazoo.

Who is Volunteer Kalamazoo? We’ve been the center for volunteerism in Kalamazoo since 1965. We link people who want to volunteer to the nonprofits who need them. We educate nonprofits on how to work effectively with volunteers. We recognize and promote all the great work volunteers do in the community… and by doing so; we hope to inspire more people to volunteer! Your support is very important to us. Thank you!
