Volunteer Manitoba's goal is to
provide information, training and resources on all aspects of the
voluntary sector and to build strong communities with working partners
including governments, researchers, non-profit/charitable organizations,
volunteers, funders, donors, labour and businesses.
Volunteer Manitoba was established in 1978, then known as the Central
Volunteer Bureau, when the United Way and the Winnipeg Foundation
realized a need to support the voluntary sector and
in Manitoba with a separate agency. Since then, our programs, services
and partnerships have dramatically expanded and help non-profit
groups and individuals enhance their capacity to anticipate, understand
and meet community needs throughout the province.
Volunteer Manitoba's mission is to support groups and individuals
in the voluntary sector to develop and enhance their capacity to
anticipate, understand, celebrate, and meet community needs in Manitoba.
