Tech Report

Do you possess specialized skills and are you looking to volunteer those skills for a good cause? Or are you a nonprofit making a difference in the world but just can’t find or afford the expert help you need?

Catchafire is a platform dedicated to matching professionals who want to volunteer their time and skills with nonprofits and social enterprises in need of help.

Catchafire’s goal is to transform the nature and impact of giving by providing nonprofits access to incredible talent to support their strategic and operational needs. Catchafire’s website matches professionals and organizations based on a variety of characteristics including skills, cause interests and of course, time availability. Volunteers can donate as little as an hour of their time on a phone consultation or as much as several weeks or months on a larger project.

Nonprofits can expect to garner support in areas such as marketing, strategic planning, tech guidance, website assistance or even leadership training. Nonprofits simply browse Catchafire’s menu of pre-structured projects and customize one that fits their needs.

They can then review applications, interview potential volunteers and ultimately match with talented professionals who can execute on their vision. Of course, the idea sounds simple, and it is, but the impact is much greater.

Through these project matches, Catchafire is ultimately seeking to create a more empathetic and connected society.
