There is no county-wide volunteer organization in Berkshire County. Volunteers are an under-utilized resource we should tap into to strengthen our sector.
A Volunteer Fair brings together 30-60 nonprofits and municipalities with hundreds of people looking to volunteer. Nonprofits receive educational materials on how best to attract, manage and engage volunteers, while attendees receive tip sheets on volunteer best practices, how to find your passion, and how to identify prospective organizations. All attendees receive a free copy of the Giving Back guide.

This page serves as a matching tool to connect volunteers to meaningful opportunities to GIVE BACK to the Berkshire community. We are committed to helping nonprofits connect, learn and grow. We connect nonprofits to volunteers through hosting Volunteer Fairs throughout the county, referrals, the Giving Back guide, and this online posting service.
