5 stars. The AACA is passionate about the south east Ohio community and its cultural offerings. They have in short order become a "go-to" site for all ages to select ways and places to be active. This connecting resource is a most valuable way to bring people together, supporting a healthy and well society.

What Nonprofits Should Know about VolunteerMatch’s Global Expansion

VolunteerMatch - 4 hours 1 sec ago

VolunteerMatch to Pilot International Expansion of Corporate Volunteering Network Using TechSoup Global TechnologyLast week we announced that we’re beginning to expand our services to create a global volunteer engagement network. We’ve partnered with TechSoup Global to leverage their technology and help build the capacity of non-governmental organizations (NGOs) around the world.

We hope you’re as excited by this announcement as we are! But we also recognize there may be some questions that pop up about this global expansion. Below are some FAQ’s for nonprofits that will help your organization, no matter where you’re located, make the most of the growing global VolunteerMatch network:

Isn’t VolunteerMatch already global?
How is VolunteerMatch working with TechSoup Global?
You mentioned 10 countries. Where is this expansion happening?
Will the whole world see my organization’s international listings?
What is planned for the future of VolunteerMatch Global?
So as a nonprofit, what should I do?

Isn’t VolunteerMatch already global?

Yes, actually, we have been for a while. Of the 100,000 organizations using VolunteerMatch, roughly 3,000 are from outside the U.S. However, we’ve never actively promoted our services to organizations based outside the United States. Until now.

How is VolunteerMatch working with TechSoup Global?

TechSoup Global has an amazing network of charities around the world that they’ve built up over the last 20+ years. We are using their technology to help smooth the registration process for organizations in 10 countries. In other words, now when a charity in one of the 10 countries registers, we ping TechSoup Global and can automate parts of the registration process. The power of technology!

You mentioned 10 countries. Where is this expansion happening?

The 10 countries in which we are working with TechSoup Global are Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia, Mexico, Brazil, Ireland, Germany, India, Singapore and Hong Kong. However, we are actively promoting VolunteerMatch just to organizations in the UK, Australia and Canada. We’d like to build the network of organizations and opportunities this year and learn what kind of growth we can expect, and starting with English speaking countries makes things a little easier.

Will the whole world see my organization’s international listings?

At first, the listings will appear in our corporate volunteering network – this means to the hundreds of thousands of employees who work at our more than 150 client companies. We are making it available to the corporate network first as part of the initial pilot before rolling it out on the public VolunteerMatch.org site.

What is planned for the future of VolunteerMatch Global?

For the rest of 2014, we will continue with this pilot initiative. We’re also working on translation issues as well as how to spread the word about VolunteerMatch in other countries. We’ll keep you posted about our progress!

So as a nonprofit, what should I do?

Great question! If your organization works in one of the pilot countries mentioned above, you can now post your listings for your volunteer needs in those countries! We encourage you to do this right away – the more volunteer listings we have in each country, the more great, skilled volunteers will make use of the network.

Have questions that weren’t answered here? Feel free to email us!

Keep up the great (global!) work!

Review of Cars for Kids by Gail30

5 stars. Great organization!
They are quick to respond either from online inquiries or phone. The process of donating a vehicle was quick and easy. They usually come the next day to pick up the vehicle. Paperwork is completed in a timely manner and you have all the documents for tax purposes.
I would highly recommend this organization for making a difference in keeping kids in school and giving...

Review of SNAPPIN MINISTRIES INC by tnurse17

Great Nonprofits Reviews - 4 hours 9 min ago
4 stars. My husband and I have volunteered with Snappin Ministries several times this last year, the events are very well organized to give the parent of a child with special needs time to not worry about the care of their child. They can be assured they are in good care with the volunteers. As a mother of a 15 year old daughter I know the anxieties being able to have a night out and would have...

Review of Wounded Warrior Project by cabn84

Great Nonprofits Reviews - 4 hours 9 min ago
5 stars. I was introduced to Wounded Warrior Project in 2009 at a dinner function, and I'm really glad i took that first step. See back then it was hard for me to get out and socialize with anyone. I had no motivation to do anything and couldnt hold a job down. Life was so mundane after combat. I went into self destruct mode and did not care what happened, I abused drugs, alcohol and battled su...

5 stars. I think this is just an awesome way to help kids in their education. It was a smooth and easy way to remove our boat we never used anymore from our yard. What better way than to help the children in a culture that no longer values life. Thank you for this opportunity.
