2019-2020 Done-In-A-Day Emergency Application (DIAD)

Done-In-A-Day is a series of concentrated projects that offer volunteers for community-based placements on a short-term basis. Volunteers can provide support at a variety of events including fundraisers, however, volunteers may not solicit funds or goods for an agency prior to or during an event. Placements are scheduled in four-hour shifts.

Please note that changes to how you can request volunteers for Done-In-A-Day have been made and you are now encouraged to make requests throughout the year. We hope giving agencies an opportunity to request volunteers multiple times in a year and not as far in advance will allow you to find other meaningful placements for our volunteers.

The following application deadlines apply for the 2019-2020 year:

  • FALL Cycle: Application due June 30, 2019 for projects running September 1, 2019 through December 31, 2019
