National Volunteer WeekNational Volunteer Week is about inspiring, recognizing and encouraging people to seek out imaginative ways to engage in their communities.  It’s about demonstration to the nation that, by working together, we have the fortitude to meet our challenges and accomplish our goals.

Sponsored by Points of Light – National Volunteer Week was established in 1974 and has grown exponentially each subsequent year, with literally thousands of volunteer projects and special events scheduled throughout the week.

  • If you’ve been or are a volunteer – what inspires you to give your time?
  • And, if you’re on staff at a nonprofit – what have your volunteers meant to the success of your mission?

We’d love to hear your stories.

We tip our hat to all volunteers in appreciation of their contribution to the greater good.
