UWCFA helps individuals, families and corporate and community groups find flexible volunteer opportunities with Cape Fear Area service organizations. UWCFA volunteers are at work every day of the year, building community and meeting critical needs in schools, shelters, senior centers, food banks, low-income neighborhoods and more.
If your group would like UWCFA to coordinate a volunteer project, please contact Phillip Hedgepeth at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Get On Board
One of the best ways to accomplish three goals – develop leadership skills, make new connections, and volunteer in the community – is to join a board of directors. To help more women in our region join boards, WILMA’s Women to Watch Leadership Initiative is partnering with United Way of the Cape Fear Area and QENO (Quality Enhancement for Nonprofit Organizations).
The Get On Board! program offers training to potential board members and helps match them with board opportunities based on their skills and interests.
QENO, which will help train potential board members, is a partnership between UNCW and others in the community to assist nonprofit organizations. The two-hour “Get On Board!” Training will cost participants $20.
United Way will then help connect individuals with potential board opportunities. In the future, we plan to add connections to help people join government and for-profit boards.
