About Us

Columbus Gives Back was founded in 2009 by local Columbus professionals who wanted to give back to the community and meet new people through fun and social volunteer opportunities! We focus on events for small groups (5-20 people) that are scheduled on evenings and weekends to accommodate the schedule of working professionals.

Columbus Gives Back is designed to complement existing organizations (we’re members of them, too!) so that together, we can make an even greater impact on our community.By working with a variety of organizations across Columbus we provide an opportunity for volunteers to participate in a variety of activities and explore different areas of Columbus in the process! After each event, we go out for food or drinks to get to know our fellow volunteers and celebrate our hard work.

Best of all, volunteering with Columbus Gives Back is free of charge — and commitment! Simply find and register for whatever events interest you. Ready to start? Check out our current volunteer events.
