We love building VolunteerLocal for you.

VolunteerLocal has been empowering athletic competitions, art festivals, music festivals, non-profit organizations and many other events all over the world since 2003. Born out of a need identified by Des Moines Arts Festival, our web-based software has proven to be a key component in managing the volunteer force that is so vital to events that range from Duck Derby Fundraisers to the World Masters Athletics Championships.

VolunteerLocal is proudly based in Des Moines, Iowa. Our software works anywhere you can access the Internet.
Happy Volunteering!

Our service was built with these principles in mind:


Happy Volunteering is more than just a clever tagline, it's our sole focus.
VolunteerLocal gives us the opportunity to seamlessly recruit for a number of specialized volunteer roles. We can keep a birds-eye-view on our signups and easily communicate with volunteers. Using this tool helps keep our large organizing team on the same page, which is critical for a collaborative event of this scale.
