Where Volunteers Make a Difference


The RSVP office is open by appointment.

All RSVP staff are now working part-time in the office and part-time remotely. They are available to meet with volunteers and visitors by appointment. To schedule an appointment with an individual staff member, please use the contact information on the Our Staff page. You can also call the general RSVP number, 608-238-7787.

In 2020, despite the Covid-19 pandemic, 1,167 RSVP and Foster Grandparent Volunteers served 120,620 hours helping children, families and older adults in Dane County. The senior population and its needs (including the risk of social isolation) are growing. At RSVP, we ease lonely feelings by connecting our volunteers with people in need in our community. We miss everyone and look forward to seeing you again soon. Please stay safe and healthy.
