National Volunteer Week


National Volunteer Week kicks off April 17. At the Community Foundation, we encourage Mid-Southerners to be strategic and intentional in their giving—which includes giving your Time, Talent, Treasure, and Ties. Giving is most rewarding when it is connected to your personal values. To apply a values-based approach to volunteering, take time to identify the causes you are passionate about, and then research available service opportunities.
