Volunteer Fairs



Our Volunteer Fairs bring together 30 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.


There is no county-wide volunteer organization in Berkshire County. Volunteers are an under-utilized resource we can tap into to strengthen our sector. Watch a clip from our November 2019 Fair at this link.


We can’t wait to welcome members of the community to our first in-person fair event since 2019. Join us at the beautiful Berkshire Innovation Center in Pittsfield on Friday, November 4th from 12 Noon to 3pm where you’ll find plenty of parking, and 30 nonprofit organizations in attendance.


Our partner in this event is Berkshire United Way. If you haven’t checked out their online volunteer center, click here to get involved and make a difference.


The Nonprofit Center also has a volunteer site at GiveBackBerkshires.org which features nonprofit profiles that include ways to help, things to donate, and stories of the impact of COVID-19. It is free for all nonprofits and community members are encouraged to use the site and its comprehensive search functions to find the perfect volunteer opportunity.



We are committed to helping nonprofits connect, learn and grow. We connect nonprofits to volunteers in a number of ways:  via the Giving Back guide (a directory of 1,000+ Berkshire nonprofits), through volunteer fairs, board trainings, referrals, and more.


Are you looking to match your skills to a nonprofit? Volunteering can be a great source of satisfaction and a learning opportunity. Join us for FREE at a Give Back Berkshires Volunteer Fair to meet organizations looking for help!


Seeking new volunteers? Reserve a table at a Give Back Berkshires Volunteer Fair to meet prospective volunteers looking to serve our community.
