New Opportunities:

 

FORTitude 10k - Sept. 4th, 2017
Fort Collins, CO

The BolderBOULDER team is partnering with the City of Fort Collins and CSU to bring a new 10k road race finishing in the new stadium on September 4th, 2017 and we are looking to involve the community as much as possible. This opportunity is great for individual as well as group volunteers, plus there is a great fundraising kick back for non-profits that can organize a team of 6 volunteers from their agency!

 

This is an excellent opportunity for your non-profit group and the race at the same time! If you are with a non-profit and can get at minimum 6 people from your organization to volunteer BolderBOULDER will make a donation to your non-profit organization for each registered volunteer that works on race day. There are shifts available at the start line, throughout the course, and at the finish where your whole group can work together. You will receive a race volunteer shirt, snack bag and a front row seat to the inaugural FORTitude 10K!

Volunteer Engagement at United Way connects interested volunteers to meaningful experiences and helps Weld County nonprofits increase their volunteer management capacity.

Many nonprofits in Weld County operate with minimal budgets. Sometimes volunteer support is the only way these organizations can achieve their mission. 62.6 million Americans volunteer. Colorado consistently surpasses the national average – nearly one third of Coloradoan’s volunteer each year – that’s 1.2 million people! Coloradoans volunteer 143 million hours of service a year, averaging 35 hours per resident each year. Volunteer Engagement at United Way helps make these community connections for volunteerism.

Volunteer Engagement (VE) at United Way of Weld County (UWWC) provides direct service to the Weld County community and creates a more connected, cohesive, and supportive environment for all its citizens. VE acts as a hub for connecting interested volunteers by promoting meaningful opportunities via an electronic resource guide, a mobile phone app, and an online registration and referral system. VE also convenes conversations and holds trainings on nonprofit volunteer management capacity building. Additionally, VE oversees the UWWC volunteer management system and recruits volunteers for a number of UWWC programs, projects, and events.

Volunteer Engagement also coordinates Day of Action, an annual one-day event for community members, businesses, and families to volunteer and complete projects at local nonprofit organizations.

So far in 2016-17, Volunteer Engagement has coordinated 1,238 UWWC volunteers who donated 9,674.5 hours of time. The Colorado value of volunteer time is $25.97 per hour, for a total savings of $251,220.80.
