Volunteer San Diego has Closed

October 6, 2011

After careful deliberation and weighing all the alternatives, Volunteer San Diego (VSD) has elected to close its doors. Despite an all-out effort by staff, volunteers, and the Board of Directors, VSD has not been able to secure sufficient funding to sustain its operations in this economy.

We take pride in the impact VSD has made in San Diego County, but we did not do it alone.

We thank the public for demonstrating year after year how important volunteering is to our community. We thank our partner organizations for providing excellent service opportunities across a broad range of interests and skills. We thank our corporate sponsors not only for believing in and supporting us, but also for understanding that there is a cost to volunteering. And we extend special thanks to our individual donors, those who gave of their time and talent, as well as their dollars.

We hope you will continue to seek volunteer opportunities at the many nonprofits, schools, libraries, faith-based and other community organizations throughout the county.

Thank you for the memories!

– The Volunteer San Diego Staff and Board of Directors

    Very sorry to hear this! I’m a volunteer coordinator for a non profit in Tucson, AZ and if it wasn’t for our volunteers, we’d be out of business as well. Good luck to you all. I am ready to retire and Tucson Audubon Society, (www.tucsonaudubon.org) has a very interesting opportunity for a volunteer coordinator that someone there might find challenging.

    Are all events signed up for effectively cancelled?

      To find out if a project you’ve signed up for is cancelled, contact the project coordinator directly. Many may still be running under the benefiting organization’s direction, without Volunteer San Diego support.

    Very sad! This was an amazing org… I thoroughly enjoyed the times I was able to join for an activity — thank you VSD for everything you’ve done and contributed!!!!!
