Need Volunteers for Your Organization?

At the Community Service Resource Center (CSRC) our mission is to connect students, staff, faculty and community members with organizations in need of volunteers. If your organization has a community service opportunity you want the UC Davis community to know about, please contact us so we can help spread the word.

Community Service Survey

Help us track how many students, staff and faculty members do community service. The survey asks a few questions about your interactions with UC Davis volunteers last year. Take the 2017 Community Service Survey. It's quick and will allow us to better serve you. If you have any questions, contact Ken Barnes at or 530.752.2011.


There are four ways to publicize your event or organization.

  • Send a message on our weekly listerv, which is received by over 7,000 students/staff/faculty. For information on how to create a posting, please see below.
  • Email an announcement to us you would like posted on our website. All messages sent on our listserv are automatically posted on our website as well.
  • If you are not already in our database of non-profit agencies, join today! We currently host nearly 500 organizations, which serves as a valuable resource to students/staff/faculty interested in community service. We are currently updating our database so let us know if there is any new information about your organization by emailing us at
  • Send us paper information about your organization. Our office is located on the central campus, 106 South Hall, and we maintain a library of pamphlets, brochures, and other informational material on non-profit organizations. We recommend you send no more than 50 brochures. To inquire further contact our office at 530-752-3813.

Mailing List Guidelines

Please include your organization name and the name of the event, a brief description of your organization, and contact information so volunteers can sign up. An email is sent out once a week to our mailing list on Wednesdays when UC Davis is in session. To be sure your opportunity is posted, you must submit it to by Sunday at midnight.

We do not send out attachments or other supplements due to spam precautions, so please take that into consideration when wording your post. Since we get a large number of submissions, we ask that you keep your post brief, as students will contact you for further information.
