Get started by creating your new account.  Your free account lets you browse or search volunteer opportunities, learn more about local nonprofits and even create and maintain your own Volunteer Resume. 

In addition to coordinating volunteers community-wide, we also have a number of programs and initiatives that involve volunteers. For those who want to make a real impact in our community, volunteering can be a great way to give back, in addition to making monetary contributions to our funds. 

If you are having issues logging in please reach out to Jacquie Lightcap.

Volunteer Douglas County dot org and Topeka Volunteers dot org are emerging in April 2024 as Kaw Valley Volunteers dot org.


On April 10, 2024 United Way of Kaw Valley merged our two online volunteer management systems (TopekaVolunteers.org and VolunteerDouglasCounty.org) under one license that serves all four of our counties. While the merged system uses the same vendor and looks and functions in a similar way, we rebranded the platform as KawValleyVolunteers.org for the entire service area.

We strived to make this change as seamless as possible. We sent emails to everyone registered on the website additional info, so please check your email including your junk/spam folder.
