Volunteer Opportunities

Oshkosh Area United Way is looking to increase volunteerism in the Oshkosh area. We have community members and corporate partners looking for volunteer opportunities. We'd like to create greater impact and ensure sustainability in the future by mobilizing volunteers and matching them with projects that better target the needs of your organization. Browse our volunteer opportunities below to learn more.
 

Collection Drives:

Collection drives are an easy way for our partners to get involved in supporting our community. Please think about what items you could benefit from when our partners host a drive.  Here are some examples:  Books, Diapers, Hygiene Items, outdoor play items like balls, games, toys, clothing, food, etc. Learn more about collection drives.

 

Year-Round Volunteering:

If you are seeking community volunteers for a one-time event or on a regular basis, we can help.  Our volunteers all have special talents and things they can do to help.  Whether it's reading to children, leading financial literacy classes for hard-working families, or delivering meals to home-bound seniors, we’d like to build a list of the numerous volunteer opportunities that are available throughout the year.  

 

Annual Day of Caring:

Day of Caring is a great way for you to tackle projects you need help completing, spread awareness about community issues, and extend your reach to those who could serve as future volunteers and advocates. OAUW coordinates groups of volunteers to work and make a difference for your organization. 

Below are tips on creating a successful project for these volunteers:

·         The projects you submit should be purposeful. Explain why the project is important to help volunteers to more deeply understand the impact they are making.

·         Take this opportunity to showcase what your nonprofit is capable of doing.

·         Give a short tour when your volunteers arrive.

·         Introduce volunteers to your guests.

·         Create friendly competition with incentives, etc. 

·         Debrief at the end of the project.

·         Thank volunteers (welcome banner, photo card sent afterward, social media, etc.)
