United Way RSVP Of Marathon County
Last updated on February 10, 2015


RSVP is a volunteer program which invites persons 55+ to respond to critical community needs through volunteer service.

The goal of RSVP is to recruit and use volunteers 55 and over to tackle tough issues in our community. While volunteers deliver valuable services to meet their community’s needs, they also personally benefit by being engaged in enriching service experiences.

Benefits for RSVP Volunteers:
• Supplemental Accident Insurance
• Auto Liability Insurance
• Volunteer Liability Insurance
• Optional Mileage Reimbursement
• Regular Social/Informational Events
• Annual Recognition Luncheon

This is how it works. When someone 55+ is interested in volunteering, the RSVP program provides personalized placement assistance to help place individuals in volunteer positions which are a good match based on their interests, skills and schedule. You are in the driver's seat. Once you find where you want to volunteer, we have the agency contact you. The agency at which the volunteer is placed, provides the orientation and training for the specific volunteer duties. RSVP provides ongoing follow-up and assistance as needed.

Use Volunteer Connection’s search, along the navigation bar above, to find opportunities to volunteer through RSVP. Search using the RSVP icon in the right column. If you find somewhere you would like to volunteer that does not have this icon, let us know. We are growing all the time.

To join RSVP, call United Way RSVP of Marathon County at 715-848-2927. We will arrange to meet with you to discuss your interests and get you enrolled.

A Bit of History:

RSVP is America’s largest volunteer network for people age 55 and over. Nationally, over 500,000 volunteers are part of a local RSVP program.

The RSVP program began in 1971 and has been in 17 other communities throughout Wisconsin for many years. The United Way of Marathon County applied for and received a federal grant from the Corporation for National and Community Service to bring the program here to Marathon County.

RSVP is a part of Senior Corps, along with Foster Grandparents and Senior Companions. Senior Corps is administered by the Corporation for National and Community Service, the federal agency that supports service and volunteering programs to improve lives, strengthen communities and foster civic engagement.
