Catchafire is an online platform for virtual, skills-based volunteering. Through Catchafire, professionals are able to directly support causes they care about by helping nonprofits with projects that match their skill sets. And because projects can be completed from anywhere, Catchafire makes it possible for nonprofits and skilled volunteers to connect for good, from all around the world!
Skills-based volunteering is a high impact form of volunteering that allows an individual to donate his or her professional skills and expertise, which in turn allows a nonprofit to build its capacity and focus more efficiently on its mission.
Skilled volunteers help nonprofits fill critical knowledge and staffing gaps, they work as thought partners on strategic projects, and they complete specific projects that require specialized skills, training, or experience. Very often, the relationships between volunteers and nonprofits extend far beyond the scope of the initial project that brought them together.
A specific example of skills-based volunteering is a marketing professional who volunteers to help a nonprofit create a marketing strategy.
We are partnering with Catchafire to provide grantees with access to virtual, skilled volunteers. We believe that by providing this valuable resource for capacity building and strategic project work, we can help our grantees amplify and accelerate the impact they have on the communities and beneficiaries they serve.
No. Your access to Catchafire is sponsored through this program, so it’s completely free for your organization.
In order to participate, you must first register your organization and then post your first project or consultation call. Get started by visiting the Project Menu to browse through over 120 detailed project types.
You can work on an unlimited number of projects and calls throughout your membership. Once you finish a project, just mark sure to mark it “complete”.
Your posted projects are visible to Catchafire’s entire skills-based volunteer community of 40,000+ talented professionals on the platform, and millions more via Catchafire's partnership with LinkedIn. Those who are interested in your organization’s cause area and who have the skills required for your project will be able to apply.
Skills-based volunteers may apply to your projects from all across the country and around the world. We encourage you to engage with virtual skills-based volunteers. If you prefer to work with somebody local, please expect it to take longer than normal to receive applications from a professional in the area.
On average, projects are matched within two weeks. If you are not seeing the response you hoped for, please reach out to [email protected], and one of Catchafire's Nonprofit Advisors will get in touch to troubleshoot with you.
After the interview, you can log into your account dashboard and ACCEPT or PASS on the match. Once both parties accept, you are officially matched and can begin the project! If you need to exchange any materials or have follow-up conversations to determine if it is a good fit after the interview, you are encouraged to do so.
Since 1980, the Community Foundation for Southern Arizona (CFSA) has been a trusted philanthropic partner helping individuals, families, businesses, and nonprofit organizations work together to create an equitable and vibrant community for all Southern Arizonans. To date, CFSA has awarded over $200 million in grants and scholarships to nonprofits and educational institutions.
CFSA cares about deeply about the health and capacity of our nonprofit community. To provide nonprofits with the resources they need to be effective and sustainable, CFSA partnered with Catchafire in 2019 to offer 100 local nonprofits unlimited access to professionally-skilled volunteers from across the country. In the first year, CFSA grantees completed more than $1.8 million in projects through their Catchafire memberships, representing over 9,000 volunteer hours and 450 individual projects.
As a part of CFSA’s long-term COVID-19 recovery strategy for 2020, CFSA expanded its Catchafire Program to offer year-long memberships to 500 nonprofits in Southern Arizona. To increase the reach of this effective program, CFSA partnered with other regional funders, including Arizona Community Foundation of Cochise, Arizona Community Foundation of Yuma, The David and Lura Lovell Foundation, Legacy Foundation of Southeast Arizona, Tucson Foundations, Thomas R. Brown Foundations, and Vitalyst Health Foundation.
Catchafire connects nonprofits with talented professionals looking to donate their skills. Catchafire's community of vetted volunteers provides nonprofit organizations free professional assistance with over 140 types of projects, ranging from short-term graphic design projects like creating a new brochure to long-term initiatives such as leadership coaching.
