Welcome to VolunteerTX, the official State of Texas volunteering network connecting you with opportunities to serve across the Lone Star State. Select your area of interest and location to explore ways that you can make an impact in your community.
VolunteerTX, brought to you by OneStar Foundation, is a digital hub for volunteerism as big as the state of Texas! We pull volunteer opportunities from local volunteer connector organizations, Idealist.Org, AARP, Feeding America, Points of Light, and more, to provide the most comprehensive database of volunteer opportunities in the state, and to connect you to projects and organizations that inspire you to serve.
Nominations are now closed for the 40th annual Governor’s Awards (GVA) and winners are expected to be announced in January 2024. GVA shines a spotlight on inspiring stories of service and the diverse ways that Texans are giving back with their time and talents. Administered by OneStar, GVA honors individuals, groups, and Texas organizations that make significant contributions to their communities.
