Why Give to the Volunteer Center?

To put it simply, because we are good at doing good.

These days, it's more important than ever to carefully consider where you send your end-of-year contributions. Since 1966, The Volunteer Center has been effectively and efficiently doing good in Bergen County. Our recent audit shows that 87% of our expenditures support our programs and services, such as:

The "All Wrapped Up" Holiday Giving Program, which brings holiday cheer to thousands of our needy neighbors during the holidays.

Mentoring Youth (formerly VIPS), which trains and supervises mentors for hundreds of children who have suffered abuse, neglect or isolation.

Mentoring Moms, which trains and supervises mentors for low-income mothers struggling to provide for their families.

The Chore Service, in which volunteer handypersons perform minor home repairs to the elderly and disabled - free-of-charge, helping to keep them safe in their homes.

The Non-Profit Training and Resource Center, which helps local non-profits better serve their clients and our community.

Bergen LEADS, which trains the next generation of community leaders.

Community Volunteer Services and RSVP, which link more than 100,000 people with volunteer jobs in our community.
