What is Skills-Based Volunteering?

Skills-based volunteers use their talents, experiences, and resources to strengthen nonprofit organizations from the inside out.  They support a nonprofit’s overall operations so the nonprofit can deliver services with greater impact.

More than free expert services, skills-based volunteering matches the right volunteer skills with each nonprofit’s needs. Ideally, volunteer projects align with the long-term goals and work of the nonprofit. A good match, then, leads to real long-term results and even ongoing support from the businesses where volunteers work.
