Volunteer Your Time

Dismas volunteer

When you pledge a gift to the Granite United Way, your dollars directly support more than 33 local organizations that help your neighbors focus on their mental well-being, overcome addictions, find housing, and childcare. 

The organizations that empower our community—places like COVER Home Repair, Upper Valley Haven, and WISE—also need people like you to power their cause through volunteer work. Learn about the volunteer experiences of fellow Dartmouth community members who have chosen to give back to the local community by contributing their time and talents. 

Dartmouth's Volunteer Time-Off Policy

Dartmouth's Volunteer Time Off Policy, most recently updated March 1, 2024, allows all regular non-union benefit-eligible employees and those eligible per a collective bargaining agreement, up to one day of paid time off from regularly scheduled work hours each fiscal year (July 1 - June 30) to perform volunteer services through eligible nonprofit organizations.

Dartmouth encourages all eligible employees to use this time to make a positive difference in their community. If you haven’t taken advantage of this benefit yet, learn more on the human resources website.
