Our History

The Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota, have benefited from a long and rich history of volunteerism. In fact, a 2009 study by the Corporation for National and Community Service listed Minneapolis/St. Paul as No. 1 for large cities with populations over one million. In many ways, the Corporate Volunteerism Council–Twin Cities (CVC-TC) has played an important role in developing, nurturing, and sustaining the high rate of volunteerism in the Twin Cities. LEARN MORE >>>



Membership in CVC is money and time well invested. The Twin Cities chapter is active and strong, and is recognized as a leader of corporate volunteerism councils. CVC offers a diverse membership roster of companies, excellent programming, and leadership development opportunities. When you join the Corporate Volunteerism Council–Twin Cities (CVC-TC), you join the ranks of more than 45 companies throughout the Twin Cities that are dedicated to the community and leading the way in corporate volunteerism.

Virtual Volunteering: How Can We Help?

It’s no secret… a LOT has changed over the last three months as the coronavirus pandemic suddenly shut down “normal” daily life. As we all shift priorities, adapt to new routines, and navigate the challenges we face, one thing has remained constant—our desire to help our community.


In an effort to best support our community of nonprofit partners, HandsOn Twin Cities has set up a centralized hub where volunteers can easily connect to the most immediate and emergency volunteer and in-kind needs.


A pandemic is not slowing down Xcel Energy’s efforts to give back to the communities it serves. Over the weekend on Friday, September 11 and Saturday, September 12, nearly 1,000 Xcel Energy employees put their good energy into action and volunteered their time in support of over 40 local nonprofit partners, including CVC associate partners, People Serving People and Second Harvest Heartland, as part of the company’s Day of Service.
