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.
We’re here to help you.
Each year thousands of people contact Volunteer Kalamazoo to find opportunities to serve their community.
Connecting people to community needs is a vital part of the work of Volunteer Kalamazoo. We invite you to register with the us, which will enable us to send volunteer referrals to your organization through our online referral service.
All partners need to complete our MOU. As a partner organization you will be required to manage your own volunteer opportunities in our Get Connected system.
After your organization registration and volunteer opportunities are entered into our system, your organization will be able to:
- Register as many volunteer opportunities as you need.
- Easily make changes to opportunities by contacting Volunteer Kalamazoo. Open or close opportunities as volunteers as needed, without ever having to retype the position descriptions.
- Get basic contact information for all of the potential volunteers referred to your organization.
We hope that our online program will make recruiting volunteers easier for your organization. If you have any questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at 269-382-8350.
