Mayor's Give a Day is
APRIL 1 - 30, 2022

This city-wide celebration of service which humbly began as a single day of service, is now an annual month-long event where residents make time for volunteering, service and compassion. The Mayor’s Give A Day celebration leverages the greatest asset we have: our people! Our goal is to inspire our community to ensure the work and the success of Give A Day will continue long into the future.

Feel free to search the menu of safe and socially distanced volunteer projects below or create an innovative project of your own. Serve at an in-person or virtual project or donate. No act of service is too small! And do not forget to record your hours for the count.

About MGAD

When Mayor Greg Fischer took office in 2011, he set three goals for Louisville focused on improving the core pillars of community life. He said we must become a city of lifelong learning, a healthier city, and a city of even greater compassion. The Mayor’s Give A Day — a partnership with Metro United Way — is the signature piece of the compassion goal.

Each spring, volunteers span across Louisville to commit selfless acts of compassion. Neighbors clean up streets and parks, collect goods for people in need, and repair homes. They read to students, mentor, assemble care packages – and much more. Though these good deeds happen in Louisville throughout the year, Give A Day puts the needs and the benefits into stark focus, lifting residents in need and setting a lasting tone of compassion for the entire city.

Since its beginning in 2011, the Mayor’s Give A Day has amassed 1.3 million volunteers and acts of compassion.
