Services and Initiatives
What’s Your 50?: A Call to Service is a public private partnership challenging Iowans to volunteer 50 hours each year. ANY organization that utilizes the talents of volunteers may participate in the campaign – download the logo and add it to your promotional materials and/or your organization's website.
- Recognition certificate: When your volunteers contribute 50 hours of service this year, you may want to recognize them with a special certificate signed by Governor Branstad and Lt. Governor Reynolds. Simply download the file, type in a name and date, and print it.
- Social media features: Volunteer Iowa showcases volunteers in a weekly Facebook and Twitter feature called "The 50 Faces of Volunteers." Tell us about your volunteers so we can profile their contributions to your organization.
Volunteer Iowa Day at the Capitol: Volunteer Iowa and our partner organizations talk with legislators about the impact volunteers have in Iowa and the critical services volunteers provide. During this event, Commissioners present the Volunteer Iowa Public Policy Priorities to elected officials. More information.
Days of Service: Each National and State Day of Service is unique and special in its own way, yet all have the same purpose; making a difference for the community. Volunteer Iowa encourages organizations and volunteers across the state to take part in activities and service projects to bring attention to causes and issues needing change and make contributions to solutions.
