Event Information

Event Info:
Servathon has an 18-year history of bringing together thousands of area volunteers for two extraordinary days of service. Volunteers who participate in Servathon have the opportunity to make a lasting impact at nonprofits and schools in our region.

Last year, Greater DC Cares engaged over 7,000 volunteers in service projects at 100+ nonprofits and schools. This year we invite you to be one of the 8,000 volunters on April 15 - 16 who will engage in service at Servathon.

Individuals and teams can start registering on Tuesday, February 1. A $25 registration fee helps share in the program costs (project supplies, t-shirts, trash bags, water, etc) of the day. We also ask each volunteer to raise $100 or more to support Greater DC Cares’ efforts to connect volunteers to the community throughout the year. It’s not mandatory, but we appreciate your help! The money raised will enable Greater DC Cares to continue to impact regional nonprofits and schools by providing them with critical volunteer services. The money you raise for Servathon will allow Greater DC Cares to continue to provide critical services to the region. If each volunteer raises $100, we can:

• Implement 1,000 volunteer projects in the region;

• Provide free tools through our tool “lending library” so that local nonprofits can upgrade their facilities;

• Connect skilled volunteers with nonprofits to help build their capacity;

• Paint 3,000 classrooms in local public schools;

• And so much more!

We expect 5,000+ volunteers to complete hands-on projects this year at area nonprofits and public schools. Volunteers will paint, plant, build, and not only save area nonprofits and public schools hundreds of thousands of dollars, but also make the region a better and brighter place.
