Create your holiday opportunities now while thousands of volunteers are looking.

Did you know that over 6,500 volunteer searches are happening everyday? People are looking for you!

We are just starting the holiday season. Well, maybe it's a bit early to say that . . . but it is never too early to be thinking about how to engage current and new volunteers over the next few months.Take advantage of the 3 month trial that allows you to access all the features of the VolunteerConnector.

Inspiring individuals - not sure where to start when recruiting? 

Be inspired by our Guest Bloggers. As they share their experiences you will find there is plenty of ways to engage people to share their passion with you and your cause. In many ways it is volunteering that has shaped their lives more than any other as these friends of ours looked to make an Impact, build Connections and find that sense of Belonging in their communities.



Added Our Most Requested Feature

Published: Apr 20, 2023 @ 12:42 PM

Happy Volunteer Week! We’ve got some big news for you about the tools that you use for recruiting volunteers.

Have you ever wished that it was possible to have a posting automatically renew instead of disappearing from the VolunteerConnector? If so, you’re not alone — it’s regularly been one of our most requested features. Well, we are happy to announce that now you can set your posting to auto-renew, either when editing it, or from our completely re-designed postings page.

We had a huge list of improvements that we wanted to make to the postings page, so we used this opportunity to re-think it from the ground up. If you run a national organization with postings across the country —or a regional organization with multiple locations— you will love that you can now see the location and audience of each posting at a glance. No matter the size of your organization, you will love that you can now quickly get access to all of the key details about all of your active postings. This is a massive upgrade to the postings page, and we hope that you find it useful.

We've already started work on a revamped dashboard and features that will make reaching your volunteers and new volunteers in your community even more accessible!



VolunteerConnector - Skills Features And More

Published: Nov 15, 2022 @ 1:52 PM

We've been busy working on new features. We're a charity and every new feature is built with the support of volunteers and funders and our subscribers so let's start with a big thank you to them!

We are making volunteering easier for everyone. This update includes a load of helpful features for organizations.

Subscribers can now recruit directly from a pool of skilled volunteers looking for opportunities that meet your criteria. This matching feature will make it easier for you to find volunteers. Better matches will lead to quicker connections with the right volunteers for your organization. Less time in admin, more time with actual humans!

With all of this connection to volunteers it can be difficult to stay organized! We now offer advanced sorting and filtering options for subscribers to make it easier to reach out to the volunteers you're already connected to.


** VolunteerConnector will always be free to volunteers. Organizations will continue to have access to our free features. We are looking for more support and if you'd like to join our community to support new and innovative supports to volunteerism Subscribe or Donate today.
