Impact Your Community

Volunteer at Rappahannock United Way to improve the lives of individuals and families in the Greater Fredericksburg area.

COVID-19 UPDATE: Even during these uncertain times, there are a few ways you can volunteer with us and still practice social distancing! Here are some ways you can help:


Literacy and early learning are critical to ensuring children are ready for kindergarten and reading at grade level by third grade. We are collecting new, age appropriate books for distribution to Head Start Classrooms throughout our area as well as constantly updating our virtual Storytime on Facebook and YouTube. We still need volunteer readers!

  • Order online and donate new age appropriate books directly to us - Amazon Wishlist
  • Make a video of yourself reading a children's story book. Recording yourself in Zoom works best.
  • Send the video to us to share on our social media channels - How To Steps

Tax Program Volunteering

We focus on helping hard working households gain the financial skills needed to be financial self-sufficient.  We need a team of dedicated volunteers to help individuals prepare their tax returns and share financial resources virtually. You do NOT need to be a tax expert to volunteer; we provide training and support.
