United Way will be introducing GET CONNECTED, a new and improved Volunteer Database Management system. There will be many benefits to groups who create a Get Connected page for their individual organization.  This program will give organizations access to what we believe will ultimately be the largest data base of volunteers in the community. Once you create a page which can contain your volunteer opportunities, photos, videos, etc., anyone interested in the category of services you provide will easily be able to find you and sign up to volunteer. In addition, you can post events or last minute volunteer needs which can be featured on the site and also e-mailed to those volunteers who have expressed an interest in these sort of events. You  would put the link to the site directly on your website for visitors to your site who are interested in volunteering.  


There is a large social media component to this site which will allow organizations to promote their Facebook pages and encourage volunteers to share their experiences about volunteering with your organization.  


The list of benefits to using this site go on and on so please join us and after the session, leave with a fully built volunteer page for your organization. You will also receive training on how to use the site and the ways it can benefit your organization as you work to promote your mission and the opportunities you have available.  


To make the most out of your Get Connected Workshop session, please bring the following with you on a thumb drive….  

  • "About us” information such as history, mission, and vision
