Columbia, MO – Heart of Missouri United Way has launched a new online volunteer center making it easier for individuals in our community to give back to local nonprofits and find volunteer opportunities that best match their passion and skills. 

The new volunteer site was sponsored by the EquipmentShare Foundation. 


Volunteers can search for opportunities based on location, interest, and skills. When a volunteer expresses interest in a project, both the project contact and the volunteer will receive each other’s contact information.   

To create a volunteer account, go to: 

You can also register for a volunteer account using your Google, Apple, or Facebook credentials.  

Nonprofit Partners 

The new site volunteer site also makes it easier for local nonprofits to post their open positions. If you’re an organization interested in sharing volunteer opportunities on the website, the first step is creating a free account. Your account will grant you access to the volunteer management portal which allows you the ability to recruit and manage volunteers.  

Volunteer positions have already been posted by Aging Best, True North of Columbia, Services for Independent Living, Columbia Center for Urban Agriculture, and more. 


Companies can create landing pages that are populated with volunteer opportunities designed to match their employees. This is a great way to encourage a company culture of employees giving back and make it easy for employees to find an opportunity that best matches their skills and interests.  


United Way improves lives by mobilizing the caring power of our community to advance the common good. We work with residents and public and private partners to co-create solutions that ensures everyone has the resources, support, opportunities, and networks they need to thrive.
