The Volunteer Center (VC) depends on its nonprofit partners to achieve its mission.  Without this relationship, the Volunteer Center would not be able to connect potential supporters and volunteers with the many critical volunteer needs in the community.  Join our 160+ Nonprofit Partners today!


In addition to exposure to over 15,000 people who utilize the VC website, nonprofit partners of the Volunteer Center receive the following benefits:

We look forward to working with you, helping you help others!


Only 501(C)(3) organizations and accredited schools are invited to register. A 501(C)(3) organization must first email its EIN number to for approval.  When staff at the VC confirm your nonprofit status, then complete the form below.

Be sure to include EIN number, nonprofit name, contact name, phone number, fax number, email address, web site, a description of your agency, and how you use volunteers.


In order to ensure that the VC can provide support for nonprofit partners, maintain our database and website, and provide valuable training and networking events to our nonprofits, we charge a nominal registration fee to new nonprofit partners to cover our administrative costs.

To apply for new partnership, please submit an active 501C3 number, complete a profile and pay the registration fee of $50.

You may pay via Paypal or by using a Visa, Discover or MasterCard. Be sure to continue through the payment process.
