Do good, RSVP+ North Dakota encourages individuals of all ages to become do-gooders by doing good things in your communities. While RSVP+ North Dakota’s mission is to encourage you to volunteer your time, we also encourage you to do good in your community in any way you can. Even if it is as simple as smiling and saying hi to the individuals you pass on the street.
Do good by volunteering your time with one of over 600 non-profit, government, and proprietary health-care organizations. In turn, the organizations you help are able to do more good in communities, families, and neighborhoods throughout North Dakota and Clay County in Minnesota. Do good by donating money to RSVP+ North Dakota. Every dollar donated allows us to continue doing good by matching volunteers with skills to organizations with a need for volunteer assistance. Donations can be earmarked for a specific RSVP+ North Dakota regional office or even for a specific program offered through RSVP+ North Dakota. RSVP+ North Dakota is a federally and locally funded program that uses donations to fill gaps in funding, and to grow our capacity to engage more volunteers.
RSVP+ North Dakota supported 7,202 volunteers of all ages who served 486,307 hours helping their communities in 2012-2013.
At the heart of all RSVP+ North Dakota activity is our volunteers. They are supported by a team of RSVP+ North Dakota staff, the VISTAs assigned to them, Advisory Council members, and partner organizations who work every day to make a difference in the lives of our communities, our programs, our volunteers, and the clients they serve. New programs are developed to recruit, retain, and recognize our volunteer force. These innovative programs serve as ways in which we develop a volunteer’s skills, give volunteers new opportunities for leadership and service, and deepen a volunteer’s commitment to strengthening their communities, families, and neighborhoods. None of these activities would be possible without highly dedicated people in key roles, visionary strategic planning, or support from our many stakeholders. RSVP+ North Dakota is grateful to the volunteers for everything they have done and continue to do to better our communities. Thank you to all RSVP+ North Dakota volunteers for your hard work and the generosity of your time and talents. You have truly made a significant and tangible difference in North Dakota’s communities.
