How to Become a CWF Volunteer

Returning volunteer?

Why volunteer?

The opportunity to help families and individuals maximize their tax return is fulfilling. But don’t take our word for it — hear from three of our top volunteers.

I have volunteered for many organizations and have to say that CWF is among the best. You do a tremendous job organizing and conducting the training under very difficult circumstances. Volunteering for CWF is engaging and rewarding. Keep up the good work!

The longer I volunteer the more I feel able not only to help taxpayers save on taxes but also recognize situations to refer them to other resources to assist them in healthcare, medicare, property taxes, and more.

I love the appreciation expressed by so many clients and their sincere caring about how I am doing.

I loved the overall atmosphere–the volunteers have a great relationship; everyone was so friendly and welcoming!

Being able to help those in need is so rewarding.

“Those who can, do. Those who can do more become a volunteer.”

About Volunteering

Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) programs have served as an invaluable financial resource for low-to-moderate income taxpayers in communities across the country for over 50 years. With as little as eight hours of training, VITA volunteers are able to uniquely help break the cycle of generational poverty by assisting taxpayers build savings, open bank accounts, review their credit score, receive financial coaching and more. Each year, VITA volunteers put billions of dollars back in the pockets of low-income taxpayers nationwide, and in so doing, facilitate sustainable community reinvestment and development. Each year, hundreds of volunteers—both in-person and virtual—help bring in over $40 million in tax refunds to our region.
