Tis the season to be jolly…..for free tax prep!!!!

The season of taxes will soon be upon us, both an exciting and busy time. So in the spirit of giving,  a great way to give back is by volunteering with United Way of Greater Greensboro’s VITA program. VITA (Volunteer Income Tax Assistance) offers free tax prep to low-income individuals, who may otherwise have to pay for tax prep services.

Volunteers are needed to reach as many taxpayers as we can to help them save more money. You don’t need to be a “math” person to volunteer (software does the math for you); you just need to be friendly and have good attention to detail. If this sounds like something you’d be interested in, please contact Zandra Cuff at 336-378-5029 or zandra.cuff(at)unitedwaygso.org.


Volunteers are the heart of United Way.

Volunteering can help you make a difference in someone’s life, learn or develop skills, improve your health, gain work experience, and even improves the likelihood that children will volunteer as an adult to name a few.

Below are several examples of short-term and long-term opportunities to make an impact.

One-time Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteer with us during United Way Week of Caring (April), Day of Action (June) or at a special event. All year, you can find individual volunteer opportunities with our partner The Volunteer Center of Greensboro.

Become a mentor

Help children in our community succeed in school and in life. Mentoring a child requires a longer-term relationship that can fit your availability. Learn more about our Mentoring Matters initiative and search volunteer mentor opportunities.

Become a VITA Volunteer

You can help low- to-moderate income families keep their hard earned money by preparing and filing tax returns as a VITA volunteer. Learn more about our VITA work and how to volunteer.

Impact Councils & Grant Committees

Be a part of a team that reviews and recommends how United Way of Greater Greensboro can create the most significant impact. Their recommendations inform United Way’s investments in the areas of Education, Income, Health and Basic Needs.

For more information about serving on an Impact Council or grant committee, contact Frank McCain at 336-378-6609 or Frank.McCain@UnitedWayGSO.org


Volunteering in the workplace is more than a “feel good” venture.


Volunteers are the backbone of United Way of Greater Greensboro’s work.
