Volunteer Opportunities
 
YOUR TIME CAN TRANSFORM LIVES

Everyday United Way of Siouxland is creating positive change in our community. But we can't do it without people like you.
 
United Way of Siouxland is looking for community minded people to help us improve people's lives by helping with our annual campaign and building a strong community.
 
Will you join our movement & help build a stronger Siouxland for tomorrow?
 
Our campaign volunteers are essential to our mission. With your help, we are able to connect and partner with local businesses and their employees in order to tell the United Way story and raise awareness about how investing in United Way is changing lives in our community.
 
Why should you get involved?
 
It takes everyone doing their part to create real change and to improve people's lives. As a United Way Campaign Volunteer you will be ambassadors for United Way during the campaign by answering questions, helping company coordinators with their campaigns, or reaching out to new organizations and building new relationships.

YOU CAN make a big impact in siouxland
 
 
 
 
Every year United Way of Siouxland makes critical investments in programs to positively impact our community through our Community Impact Process.
 
The Community Impact Process invests funds raised during the annual campaign. Funds are distributed in the areas of Education, Income, and Health to impact the goals outlined in our Agenda for Change. Diverse, dedicated volunteers lend their time and talent to lead the process.
 
What is the role of the volunteers in the Community Impact Process?
 
We depend on the leadership of volunteers from across the community to guide the sound investment of funds entrusted to us by generous donors. These volunteers provide insight and oversight to ensure that programs deliver solid results. Working in teams, volunteers review funding applications and make recommendations for future funding.
 
Would you like more information on getting involved?
