Support our Efforts

For more than 40 years, the Volunteer Center of Santa Cruz County has connected individuals, non-profit agencies, and businesses seeking to Be the Difference with opportunities to tackle the issues most vital to our community.

We connect people with volunteer opportunities through our website, by phone, or in person at our local Centers. We connect non-profit agencies with eager volunteers by maintaining an online database of over 300 opportunities throughout Santa Cruz County. And, we connect businesses to community projects which support their business and philanthropic goals.

In the last year the Volunteer Center:

  • Recruited and connected 11,608 volunteers
  • Provided service to 8,737 clients
  • Partnered with over 400 non-profits
  • Generated $9.9 million in volunteer labor towards solving pressing community issues.

We maintain our programs and services by leveraging City and County dollars and through the generous support of foundations and individual donors.
