When a volunteer gives their time through the City, they do more than just show up 
and lend a hand. Their contributions enrich and expand City programs, keeping them 
affordable and accessible to the entire community

Supporting the Programs that Run on Volunteers#

The work of Volunteer Services creates a ripple effect that impacts our community 
beyond keeping City programs affordable and accessible. The programs supported by 
Volunteer Services create long-lasting benefits for our community for years to come.

Growing the NextGeneration of Volunteers#

Volunteer Services works to ensure that when someone gives their time to our community, 
their dedication to the community is matched by our dedication to them. We work to ensure 
when someone decides to volunteer, they’re easily connected with the right opportunity, 
properly trained and their time is rewarding and enjoyable. 
That’s why Volunteer Services needs your support. We want to maintain the great work being 
done, grow volunteer engagement and enhance the experience for everyone. Your support can help build the Next Generation of Volunteers! Join our campaign to build up the NextGenServe Youth Volunteer Club!

2023 - 2025 Strategic Plan

The City of Fort Collins (FC)is a wonderful place to live, thanks in large part to the residents who live here and are active and involved in their community. Part of an engaged City is a community that selflessly gives back making the world a better place for those around them. Using their time, talents, treasures, hearts and hands to help others, these people are the backbone of a community. They are volunteers.

The City of Fort Collins Volunteer Program is designed to creatively engage people and their unique talents. When talent and passion are working together, the results are amazing. With that aim, the City promotes volunteer involvement to improve services and create community.

To view current goals and areas The City of Fort Collins Volunteer Program hopes to improve check out our strategic plan!
