Volunteering with Greater Mankato Area United Way

Every year, more than 1,000 volunteers share their time and talent with our United Way to build a better tomorrow for our region. Our volunteers come from all skill sets and walks of life, but what they share is an immeasurable passion for improving our region. They are bankers and public servants, teachers and business owners, retirees and students, and many other do-gooders. They are our everyday heroes!

Why Volunteer

You volunteer to change lives--and helping people live their best possible lives not only helps others, it benefits our entire region for generations to come by making a real and long-lasting impact!
