Register to be a Nonprofit Partner

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:

  • Nonprofit Partner Listing on the VC website
  • Full profile page for each partner, including logo, mission, background information, photos, volunteer opportunities
  • Postings on the Events Calendar of the VC website
  • Discounts on VC sponsored Training and Networking Events
  • Ability to nominate an exceptional volunteer for VC recognition
  • Free annual partnership renewal

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.

Alternatively, you may email us at, call us at 847-441-7665, or write us at The Volunteer Center, 520 Glendale Avenue, Suite 211, Winnetka, IL 60093. 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.

For nonprofit partners who may need to re-register, for example: change of name of nonprofit, etc. There is no charge for this registration if you have already registered.

Please select the appropriate option.

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

You may also pay by mail. Please print and complete the form below and mail it together with your check (made out to The Volunteer Center) to:
