So often in the nonprofit world, there is more work than time to get it done. If you want to take your social media and digital marketing to the next level but need more hands on the job, please check out our volunteer portal that comes from the support of the partnerships we’ve developed with VolunteerMatch and the Taproot Foundation. VolunteerMatch connects nonprofits to cause-driven volunteers, while Taproot+ focuses on skilled volunteers, many of whom choose to work remotely, for 30-40 hours of pro-bono assistance. So in terms of social media work, you can connect with VolunteerMatch for simpler tasks like recording the livestream at events, and Taproot+ for more involved tasks like designing your nonprofit’s dashboard for social media analytics.
Great, but what if you’re not sure what help you need? We have also developed template volunteer descriptions you can use to get started. You can use one of these short volunteer description to post on the volunteer portal today!
VolunteerMatch connects volunteers with the causes they care about and connects nonprofits with passionate volunteers. It is an online platform that has worked globally since 1998. They are connected to over 900,000 nonprofits and support virtual and hands-on volunteering. Use VolunteerMatch to post event related and ongoing volunteer opportunities.
Taproot+ is an online platform that helps nonprofit professionals describe their needs and connect to a curated group of motivated, ready skilled volunteers with the right skills to help. We’ve built on our 13 years in pro bono to create a low-touch, high-impact model that makes pro bono easier to access and manage on both sides. A nonprofit and a skilled volunteer will work together on short-term, high-impact projects such as a video short or a competitor analysis.
