Volunteer Missoula is a project that gathers all volunteer offers and requests that Missoula nonprofits manage into one central place. We are a volunteer matching website that will help connect volunteers with causes they care about in matter moments.
Volunteer Missoula is a an initiative designed to help streamline volunteering in Missoula. A group of dedicated Missoulians joined forces to launch www.VolunteerMissoula.org, the electronic bulletin board that allows local nonprofits to post their volunteer needs and organization's events while simultaneously providing a one-stop-shop for potential volunteers to search for opportunities. Volunteer Missoula is fiscally sponsored by United Way of Missoula County.
With over 600 nonprofit and charitable organizations, Missoula is an exceptionally giving community. Every day these organizations need support from volunteers, as well as the public and private sectors to meet the growing needs of the community. Missoula’s economic and social climate continues to shift, creating the need to centralize volunteer resources for private, public and nonprofit purposes. New collaborative partnerships are essential to maximize efforts and provide efficient delivery of services. Communication between all groups is key to closing the gap between volunteers and volunteer management professionals, and the success of Volunteer Missoula.
