Information for Nonprofit Partners


How We Help

BVU builds collaborative partnerships with local nonprofit organizations, schools, faith-based groups and other community agencies to create real change through volunteerism and community involvement.

How You Benefit

Our nonprofit partners gain access to community volunteers, corporate groups, and a robust set of nonprofit services designed to help you achieve your mission.

Our goal is to connect the community and business sector with volunteer opportunities of all types, and to provide much needed assistance to our nonprofit partners. Whatever the need, we welcome new opportunities for partnership.
