Workplace Volunteer Council
United Way Suncoast believes volunteers play a critical role in creating change that can help improve lives and build a strong, caring community. And we recognize that volunteerism is one of the foundations of corporate social responsibility and good corporate citizenship. That’s why United Way proudly serves as convener of the Workplace Volunteer Council (WVC).
The WVC is an alliance composed of representatives from Hillsborough, Pinellas, Sarasota and DeSoto County companies, professional services firms, and government entities that actively promote employee volunteerism. The Council offers its members a unique forum to exchange best practices and innovative ideas for increasing community volunteerism through workplace involvement.
By joining the WVC, your organization will align itself with leading from Hillsborough, Pinellas, Sarasota and DeSoto County area employers and United Way, as we work together to deliver on our shared commitment to advance the common good by mobilizing volunteers across Hillsborough and Pinellas counties.
