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 >>>
