Give Your Time


You may not realize this but volunteering your time to help others puts you in an elite group of remarkable people. According to the U.S. Department of Labor, only about 28.8% of the United States civilian non-institutional population, age 16 or over, volunteers any of their time to helping others. If you donate just one hour per week you will be in the top 15%!

Volunteering your help does not have to be a full-time job. Many of us are already working full time. Your work may be at a job or taking care of a family. That is not a problem! There are many volunteer opportunities that do not require a significant amount of time.

Don't delay in getting started as a volunteer. Many people are counting on you to help make this world better in your special and unique way.

What are some of the benefits of volunteering?

Here’s a list of just a few of the benefits you receive from volunteering your time:
  • Making new friends and networking contacts
  • Building self-esteem
  • Learning new skills
  • Having fun
  • Making a difference in the lives of people
  • Personal satisfaction
  • Using the experience on your resume

Finding Volunteer Opportunities

The number and type of volunteer opportunities are almost unlimited. To aid you in your search for opportunities that are right for you, we are writing a report entitled "How To Find Volunteer Opportunities." It will be available on this website soon. In the meantime:
  • Ask at your local church (I do not know of any church that doesn't need more volunteer help)
  • Visit http://www.pointsoflight.org
  • Contact your local United Way organization.
We have also written the report "9 Questions to Consider Before Volunteering" to help you select a great opportunity. You can receive a copy of this report by signing up for our e-zine on the left side of this webpage. Have fun on your search!

I love receiving Everyday Giving. As the President of a national health agency local chapter, Everyday Giving lifts me out of my traditional way of thinking and reminds me there are many ways to contribute and be giving. It also reminds me of the opportunities I have outside of my work to make a difference.
