ABOUT THE VOLUNTEERS

Work With Talented Professionals From Around the World

Catchafire's virtual volunteering network connects you with passionate professionals across a diverse range of fields, from Fortune 500s to 1-person startups, all over the world.

Finding the right match is important. Each of the 150+ pre-scoped projects contains prerequisite skills and experience, core deliverables, and time estimates, so volunteers know exactly what is required when they apply to work with you.

The rigorous application process, which includes work experience, portfolios, and statements of interest, limits applicants to those who are serious about working with you. It's not a one-click application, and it shouldn't be.

You can review up to three applications at a time, and interview candidates before deciding. The decision is yours.

What Other Organizations are Saying

“Our non-profit has only two administrators that oversee the entire operation, so having Catchafire assist us on projects has saved us thousands of dollars and has help us improve our organization’s viability. Rainbow School is so grateful to have this wonderful opportunity to work with the professionals at Catchafire because of the generosity of the Hawaii Community Foundation.”
Cynthia B.
“Over a short round of edits, print-ready materials were created, and print we did! We know that we saved thousands of dollars on graphic artist fees, helping us focus our limited funds on conducting programs. We thank Catchafire and the Hawai'i Community Foundation for supporting us in this innovative, creative, and practical way. We look forward to starting our next project!”

About This Program

Because philanthropy is many things—a boost for individuals in time of need, a catalyst for change, a spark for social innovation, and a lever for reform—the Hawaii Community Foundation is many things. Among them, HCF is a resource, a partner, a funder, an advocate. At the heart of everything we do at HCF is a commitment to deliver meaningful impact that will benefit Hawaii.

Through this partnership with Catchafire we are providing our grantees with access to skills-based volunteers across the world. We believe that by bringing talent to our grantees, we can maximize the impact organizations are able to make on the communities they serve.

Catchafire is the largest, online tool that connects social good organizations with talented professionals looking to donate their skills. This resource provides organizations with expert support in areas like marketing and communications, web development, operations, strategy and more.
