Council of Religious Volunteer Agencies

Are you interested in volunteering?

CRVA is a broad, faith-based coalition of North American organizations (promoters, planners, users) of voluntary service. With roots in the religious community, CRVA is an independent, non-profit association. Members include local, community-based organizations using small numbers of volunteers and national agencies placing thousands of volunteers annually.

Each year CRVA member organizations place thousands of volunteers within the U.S. and around the world for periods of a few days to three years. Through its semi-annual meetings, CRVA serves as a forum for sharing ideas, programs, and resources among administrators of voluntary service organizations. In addition, CRVA sponsors periodic consultations on topics of interest to the field of voluntary service.

Persons or organizations interested in CRVA membership or having further inquiries may contact CRVA chair Ed Doty <>.
