What is Skills-Based Volunteering?
Skills-based volunteers use their talents, experiences, and resources to strengthen nonprofit organizations from the inside out. They support a nonprofit’s overall operations so the nonprofit can deliver services with greater impact.
More than free expert services, skills-based volunteering matches the right volunteer skills with the right nonprofit’s needs. Ideally, volunteer projects align with the long-term goals and work of the nonprofit. A good match, then, leads to real long-term results and even ongoing support from the businesses where volunteers work.
