Give Bucks County a few hours or a few days this year.  We guarantee that lives will change – and it won’t just be the people you help.  There is nothing more empowering than knowing that you did the right thing; than proving that one person can make an impact; than standing up and saying ‘I can make a difference.’

Volunteer Bucks is a catalog of nonprofits and their current volunteer opportunities and events. You can browse all the needs, decide what interests you, and sign up online! This site powered by Bucks County Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster (Bucks VOAD), in partnership with UW Bucks and the County of Bucks. Anyone interested in helping in the case of an emergency can sign up here.

At United Way of Bucks County, we rely on an army of volunteers who donate their time and talents in a number of ways.  They participate in traditional volunteer work – serving as mentors and tutors; fixing up non-profit centers; and much more.  We also have volunteers who lend a hand in non-traditional ways.

We can always use help in these areas:

  • Marketing:  If you have a talent for social media, video production, photography, or blogging, we could really use your help!  Contact Danielle Bush at (215) 949 1660 x 112 or danielleb@uwbucks.org to discuss possibilities.
  • Community Solutions Teams:  Interesting fact about UW Bucks:  We rely on volunteers and community members to help us understand the education, income and health challenges residents of Bucks County face and to identify innovative solutions to these problems.  This includes helping to decide what solutions we fund and at what levels. We have five Community Solutions Teams that meet regularly to discuss hunger and food insecurity, early child care and education, seniors’ access to benefits, information and referral services, and basic emergency needs.  To discuss Community Solutions Teams volunteer opportunities, contact Danielle Bush at (215) 949 1660 x 112 or danielleb@uwbucks.org.
  • Volunteer Match: If you recently retired or just want to give back to the community through volunteering, UW Bucks can match you with a nonprofit agency that’s providing a program in an area that interests you and is geographically close to your home or business. To get the Volunteer Match process underway, please complete a volunteer application (click here) and if you have any questions, please contact Danielle Bush at (215) 949 1660 ext 112.

We know that volunteers make achieving our community goals possible. Together, we’re making a difference in the lives of our neighbors, and creating lasting impact in our community.
