Volunteer Center for Frederick County: Give back to our community through service work

We envision a world where all individuals discover their power to make a difference and are equipped as active, engaged citizens.

At United Way of Frederick County, we believe that anyone can be a philanthropist, whether it's through giving time or monetary donations. Sharing your time and talents is an invaluable way to give back and impact the lives of your neighbors. We make volunteering fun, easy, and accessible to individuals, groups, and corporations so that they can take action on the causes they care about the most. 


Sign up through our Get Connected website, and you will be updated when community volunteer opportunities come up throughout the year for agencies throughout Frederick County, including our Days of Service that run in the spring and fall. Learn more about United Way volunteer programs such as Day of Action, MLK Day of Service, Stuff the Bus, and VITA and Budget Coaching.
