This is it! Please take action.


The Volunteerism Bill is in the final stages of consideration by a different group of lawmakers.


This is a historic moment for volunteerism, not only in Minnesota, but nationwide. This one-of-a-kind Bill has a good chance of passage, and your help is needed. Your emails* to these elected officials will make a difference:


Rep. Tina Liebling:

Rep. Robert Bierman:

The Volunteerism Provision is now being considered in the Omnibus Health and Human Services appropriations (SF 2995 and HF2930) conference committee. Can you please support the full million-dollar allocation?   You have been a true supporter and I know you care about the success of this work. A smaller allocation will not make a difference in terms of leveraging resources. The more funding we allocate the more volunteers we leverage, and the more people we help. It's that simple!


We really need your advocacy!
