Getting Started

Helping Others

For more than 45 years, Volunteer Kalamazoo has helped nonprofit organizations in Kalamazoo County with their volunteer management needs. Organizations serving a myriad of causes addressing everything from homelessness to the conservation of natural resources have relied on Volunteer Kalamazoo to find volunteers who want to make a difference. However, most nonprofits know that finding volunteers is just the beginning.

Building and managing an effective volunteer program is no easy task, but Volunteer Kalamazoo is here to help. As a Kalamazoo County nonprofit, with 501(c)(3) status, you are eligible to access services uniquely designed to establish or strengthen your existing volunteer programs. Any nonprofit organization in the Greater Kalamazoo area or nonprofits serving residents in Kalamazoo can register their volunteer opportunities.
