In March of 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic forced nonprofits around the US to shut down 93% of their volunteering programs. As a result, vulnerable communities were left without critical lifelines, and millions of families and individuals could no longer find the help they rely on every day.
For the past 22 years, VolunteerMatch has served as the impact sector's go-to resource for matching dedicated volunteers with organizations supporting and serving their communities.
Due to the pandemic, recruiting enough volunteers has been the challenge of a lifetime for nonprofits around the country. Throughout this time, VolunteerMatch has empowered countless organizations with the tools and resources required to not only get their programs up and running again, but to see them thrive.
At the heart of it all are the Volunteers
Your gift to VolunteerMatch ensures the time and talent of the 13 million visitors who come to our site every year seeking opportunities to help will continue to be connected in service to the nonprofits who serve the most vulnerable among us.
Since March, only half of the nation's volunteer force has recovered, throwing the future of thousands of organizations into jeopardy and stalling crucial progress on causes requiring urgent action. We're committed to creating a world in which a full 100% of our country's volunteer force is restored—and even expanded. But without your support, none of this is possible.
At the start of it all are the Matchmakers
$5 matches two volunteers with a nonprofit organization, a tax-deductible contribution of $20 equips up to 10 nonprofits with more power than they had yesterday to advance the causes that are important to you. With a recurring donation of just $5 per month, 30 nonprofits will be able to better support their communities each year.
Every match counts. Donate today to become a Matchmaker!
