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 our talented employees with the opportunity to directly support nonprofit organizations through volunteering their professional skills and experience. We believe that skills-based volunteering is a high impact way for professionals to give back to their communities and have a positive social impact on the causes they are passionate about.
The nonprofit will review your application to decide whether they want to move forward with an interview. If so, you will be contacted by Catchafire to schedule the call. Nonprofits are encouraged to decide promptly, but there is no set timeline for when they will reply.
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.
There is not an option to filter by location. All volunteer engagements are set up to be performed remotely, so you are welcome to apply for projects outside of your geographic area. Volunteers are encouraged to connect based on skills and cause area interest.
Yes! All projects have been designed to allow you to work with the nonprofit organization remotely.
You can apply to as many projects and calls as you would like, but we would recommend applying to no more than three projects at a time so you have sufficient time to schedule interviews before applying again.
Projects vary in length from 1 to 40 hours, depending on the project type. Estimated hours are indicated for each project.
Catchafire is committed to making sure everyone who wants to volunteer their skills can do so. If you are having trouble finding a project that fits, feel free to contact Catchafire at firstname.lastname@example.org for help.
The mission of Viacommunity, Viacom’s social efforts umbrella, is to leverage the power of our brands to make an impact. One of the best ways we can give back to the communities we serve is through the unique expertise of our creative and talented employees.
Through this skills-based volunteering program, employees can strengthen their skills and build new ones, while giving back to the causes they care about in their own time and place. Participating employees will also have the chance to connect with colleagues across the company working towards the same goal.
