 Volunteer and Donations Guide - Make an Impact! 
Brought to you by the Leadership Academy of Madison County and Volunteer Madison County

Most Madison County non-profits require volunteers to provide needed services to the community. The VMC mobilizes unique individuals with the passion and expertise to get things done.   By giving your time and talent, you are contributing to a collective effort to make Madison County a vibrant and thriving place to live!


Collection Drives

We make it easy to coordinate collection drives. You’ll get a list of suggested items and helpful organizing tips, and we’ll connect your company or group with community organizations which can make the most of your donations.

Group Opportunities

The workplace is a great place to organize a volunteer group for community service projects. We make it easy by connecting your group with one-day or ongoing volunteer opportunities.  We can also help church groups, youth groups or service clubs connect with local agencies or upcoming events.

For Agencies

We are thrilled to work alongside so many wonderful non-profit partners throughout Madison County. If you have volunteer opportunities available to the community, we would love to share that information! Simply read through our guidelines and complete the online Volunteer Opportunity Form.
