Become a Partner
1. Make sure you're eligible! We work with 501(c)(3) and (6) nonprofits, community-based agencies, schools, and city agencies in need of skilled and un-skilled volunteers. While we focus on serving Alexandria and Alexandrians, organizations from other counties are eligible to become a partner. See our Partnership Policy for more details.
2. Confirm that your organization isn't already a partner. It's possible that someone else from your organization has already created an organizational profile for your agency. Check our Nonprofit Partner Directory to make sure your organization is not already listed as an active partner.
If you find your organization on the list, contact us so that we can tell you how to get added to your account for your organization. Each individual person accesses the site with their own account.
3. If your organization is NOT on that active list:
We will be in touch once we review your application to move forward with solidifying the partnership. Once you're approved, we'll grant you individual account access.
" I wanted to write to thank you both for your assistance in posting our volunteer opportunities for the Portside in Old Town Summer Festival. We had a phenomenal event and a solid team of volunteers who played a role in our success. I was very impressed with the volunteer portal and it made volunteer recruitment so much easier and organized. This was the first time we put out such a large call for volunteers and working through Volunteer Alexandria made a tremendous difference for us. Plus, the volunteers who signed up were great to work with and very dependable, which can be hard to find." - Elissa Staley, Event & Partnership Manager, Visit Alexandria
