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.

Josie Berg-Hammond - Communications Manager
Josie is the ultimate communicator with experience across many industries. After receiving an English degree from Drake University, Josie went right into working for a giant tech startup before honing her writing skills as a publicist and eventually finding her way to an elementary school in Brooklyn. From working on stories with Chicago's top chefs to negotiating with first graders, she's ready to talk to anyone and always eager to help solve a problem. While she might not be in the classroom anymore, Josie is excited to volunteer for organizations helping children across Brooklyn.
Our service was built with these principles in mind:
- People volunteer for causes they care about.
- Volunteers want the sign up process to be simple.
- Communication is vital to a positive experience.
is more than just a clever tagline, it's our sole focus.
