Invest With Us

At Volunteer Victoria we believe that volunteers turn ideas into reality and potential into probability. We believe that volunteering changes the way people feel about themselves because volunteers connect with places, causes, and ideas that matter. We believe that everyone, regardless of age or stage of life, deserves an opportunity to volunteer and to make a difference.

A donation to Volunteer Victoria has a big return on investment because Everyone in the Community Benefits when the Volunteer Community is Vital and Strong
