Organizations


One of our primary functions is to work with organizations to help you use service as a strategy to fulfill your mission by engaging volunteers, ultimately addressing pressing community challenges across Iowa. We do this by:

  • connecting you with programming that we or our partners fund, and/or 
  • providing technical assistance on how to better utilize community volunteers to meet your needs

Check out the following resources below, or get in touch any time by emailing icvs@iowaeda.com or 1.800.308.5987 to learn more about how we can help connect your organization with opportunities.


Do you need volunteers?  Do you need a user-friendly online platform to recruit and manage volunteers? Then sign up today for a Get Connected account and start connecting members of your community to each other so that problems are solved, a helping hand is there when needed, and the right relationships are formed to bring about truly positive action.


Looking for a unique way to recruit new volunteers?  Consider participating in a Day of Service!  Service projects focus on, but are not limited to, service areas such as: education, mentoring, community beautification, and donation collections.  People who become involved as one-day volunteers often become great advocates, regular volunteers, and supporters.  Our Project Planning Kit will help you develop a successful volunteer project benefiting those in need in your community while honoring a National Day of Service.
