ABOUT THE VOLUNTEERS

Work With Talented Professionals From Around the World

Catchafire's virtual volunteering network connects you with passionate professionals across a diverse range of fields, from Fortune 500s to 1-person startups, all over the world.

Finding the right match is important. Each of the 150+ pre-scoped projects contains prerequisite skills and experience, core deliverables, and time estimates, so volunteers know exactly what is required when they apply to work with you.

The rigorous application process, which includes work experience, portfolios, and statements of interest, limits applicants to those who are serious about working with you. It's not a one-click application, and it shouldn't be.

You can review up to three applications at a time, and interview candidates before deciding. The decision is yours.

About This Program

Silicon Valley Community Foundation advances innovative philanthropic solutions to challenging problems. As the largest community foundation in the world, we engage donors and corporations from Silicon Valley, across the country and around the globe to make our region and world better for all. Our passion for helping people and organizations achieve their philanthropic dreams has created a global philanthropic enterprise committed to the belief that possibilities start here.

The Grove Foundation seeks to strengthen, regain and protect the America Andy and Eva Grove experienced as immigrants in the 1950s: An America that welcomed them; encouraged them to contribute to society; and gave them the opportunity to do so. We believe in equal rights, freedom from stigma and discrimination, access to basic needs and services and economic opportunity. At the Grove Foundation, we have a strong commitment to racial justice – which to us means the systemic fair treatment of people of all races, resulting in equitable opportunities and outcomes for all.

We both partner with Catchafire to provide access to skills-based volunteers across the world for our grantees. We believe that by bringing high quality talent to you, our grantees, we can maximize the impact you are able to make on the communities you serve.

Catchafire is the largest, online tool that connects social good organizations with talented professionals looking to donate their skills. This resource provides organizations with expert support in areas like marketing and communications, web development, operations, strategy and more.
