My name is Megan and I like to volunteer. For every $20.44 raised, I will volunteer 1 hour of my time to serving Volunteer Missoula in any way possible. As the Chairman of the Board, I have a lot of volunteer work to choose from, but you can help improve Volunteer Missoula by encouraging me to volunteer more over the holidays. Help me help Missoulians get their volunteer on and donate to my Crowdrise page today!
Here is my compelling story for why you should support me and Volunteer Missoula...
When I am asked what I do for a living, I reply by explaining that I help people and nonprofit programs identify with passions that serve a greater good. In my work as a volunteer and Volunteer Coordinator in Missoula, I found it difficult to navigate the web of mission-driven programs in the community. I knew I wanted to share my time and talents as a volunteer, but I didn’t know where to start. As a Volunteer Coordinator, I met people every day in the same situation. Their hearts were always in the right place, but they were not always matched with the right organization or the right service opportunity. From personal experience, if you are not truly passionate about serving a specific cause, you will not have the visible positive influence you sought to achieve through volunteering. The key to making a true and real difference in your life, the lives of others, and the community as a whole is to identify your passion and dedicate your time and effort to that cause.
The mission of Volunteer Missoula is to connect volunteers to service opportunities and nonprofits to passionate volunteers in Missoula. It’s that simple. As an all-volunteer organization, Volunteer Missoula strives to make it easier for the community to find service projects, causes and/or missions for which they feel passionately. Volunteer Missoula also provides education, resources, and guidance to nonprofit volunteer programs to help engage volunteers in meaningful community service. In just a few short years, Volunteer Missoula can confidently say that if someone is looking to volunteer in Missoula, there is an opportunity awaiting them on the Volunteer Missoula website. With over 100 organizations posting opportunities daily, on average 140 active listed opportunities, and approximately 1,000 regular users, it is as easy for volunteers to identify and find their passions as it is for organizations to recruit volunteers to their mission.
Volunteer Missoula has the power to increase the level of positive change nonprofits can make in their community by recruiting more volunteers to serve in more specific roles that expand the reach of mission-driven causes. By utilizing Volunteer Missoula’s site, individuals can start serving in a very short period of time. Volunteer Missoula makes volunteering easy by streamlining the process of thinking about making a change in the community to actually participating in fostering that change.
