Volunteer with UWLC

When you volunteer you give your most valuable gift—your time. Lane County non-profits depend on passionate people like you. Thank you!

The powerful benefits of volunteering have a positive impact on the community and you – when you do good, you feel good! Beyond making a difference in the community, volunteering can make you feel physically healthier, help you pursue your passions, develop and hone important life and trade skills, and add extra meaning and purpose to your life.

Let us connect you with opportunities that make a difference. Visit our volunteer website to help you find something that’s right for you.


2019 Day of Caring is September 26!

Join us for an annual day of volunteering facilitated by United Way of Lane County since 1993. Each year, United Way of Lane County works to coordinate partners across the nonprofit, public, and private sectors for one incredible day of giving back to the community through volunteerism. The event takes places each September and helps to promote the importance of a connected community.

Day of Caring & Day of Action


Day of Caring

Day of Caring is a fun, meaningful way for your business or organization to strengthen teamwork while actively improving the community. One day a year, hundreds of volunteers perform service projects for dozens of non-profit agencies across Lane County. It’s a great way to connect, get out in the community, and lend a hand to local non-profits.

Day of Action

Along with our annual Day of Caring, we have smaller Days of Action. These special projects fill a particular community need and offer one-time volunteer and sponsorship opportunities.
