#GivingTuesday 2017

Building a Better Community Through Service

What an amazing year 2016 has been for Volunteer Fairfax! With your partnership, volunteerism has impacted more lives than ever before! More than 23,000 volunteers have answered the call, giving over 82,000 volunteer hours of service. Their work makes a tremendous impact in the community.

Every day, we match volunteers with organizations that leave their caring mark on the hungry, the homeless, and the helpless. Volunteers organize and fill food pantries, restore watersheds, teach children, renovate homes, honor heroes and encourage the hopeless.

We’re here at Volunteer Fairfax to make a difference.
We need your help to get the job done.
Your financial support makes it happen!

About the Catalogue for Philanthropy:   The Catalogue selected us as one of its featured nonprofits! Each year 120 expert reviewers evaluate applicants for distinction, merit, and impact. Each featured charity has been successfully site visited and its financials given the thumbs up. The Catalogue for Philanthropy charges no fees and raises funds separately to support its work. Since 2003, it has raised over $40 million for charities across Greater Washington. The Catalogue for Philanthropy looks to friends like you to keep our services independent and entirely free of charge. Consider a small contribution to the Catalogue to cap off your gift and help the causes you care about get the full support they deserve!
