Contribute Your Professional Skills

To strengthen nonprofits and solve community challenges

Experience definition501 Commons provides several opportunities for you to engage your professional skills in the nonprofit sector. For more than 25 years, members of our Executive Service Corps have volunteered to make a wide range of services and support available to Washington State nonprofits at affordable rates. Service Corps members serve as consultants, coaches, executive advisers, facilitators, and project managers. Membership in our Service Corps is open to professionals throughout the state of Washington.

More recently we have added two new opportunities: Volunteer Manager Corps and Encore Fellows.

  • Volunteers in King County can serve as part-time volunteer managers for the United Way of King County Volunteer Impact Partnership.
  • Professionals who are interested in an encore career in the social sector can contribute their skills as an Encore Fellow in a nonprofit. Fellows earn a part time salary in this role.

These options provide unique, challenging, and rewarding opportunities to skilled professionals. And, each year, our volunteers contribute more than $1 million worth of services to nonprofits.
