Manage Your Corporate Volunteering with Involve

You can use it in conjunction with your workplace United Way campaign or throughout the year. Projects are available for individuals and groups alike.

    • Offer employees personal enrichment through volunteerism, organize and manage volunteer opportunities and achieve your goals for corporate community engagement and social responsibility.
    • Companies can create their own profile and manage and load projects.
    • Projects range from drives, kits and tours to events, physical labor and learning experiences – both one-time and ongoing – with United Way or INVOLVE partners.
    • Make a bigger impact by using INVOLVE as an established volunteer center solution.
    • Employees have access to search for their company’s projects or INVOLVE community partners.

  • How much support will United Way staff provide?

    Staff is available every step of the way – from creating your company’s profile to helping you find the right project for your employees.

  • What type of projects can be posted?

    INVOLVE supports projects of virtually every type and size. Users have access to load multiple events, tours, drives and one-time or recurring projects.

    *Projects curated by United Way Hands On may incur the cost of associated supplies, such as paint, cleaning products, mulch, etc.

“INVOLVE has been a game-changer for me in my position as a Community Engagement Coordinator. Prior to using INVOLVE, I didn’t have a software platform for registering volunteers, marketing events or tracking KPIs – I did it all manually on Excel. INVOLVE literally has cut the time in half that I spend signing up volunteers and tracking their time. I have seen an increase in participation, communication and excitement among volunteers since incorporating the system. As an added bonus, it keeps users plugged in to what other organizations are doing in the community. I highly recommend using the INVOLVE platform!”
