There are opportunities to volunteer with nonprofits throughout the year, but we have several coming up this Spring. Check out the volunteer opportunities below or ping Gillian Cook at firstname.lastname@example.org, if you want to let us know what projects most interest you.
Fundraising is essential to the success of nonprofits. Many nonprofits lack the capacity, resources, and knowledge to raise the funds they need to help them achieve their missions and sustain themselves financially. You can help by contributing your fundraising skills and experience to help boost the capacity of local nonprofits while also enhancing your own consulting skills. While the requirements of each project vary, consultants typically work in pairs and each serve approximately 10-12 hours per month over the course of 3-6 months. For more information about this opportunity and how to apply, please contact Gillian Cook at email@example.com.
Are you a professional coach who is looking for ways to engage in the community? We are in high demand for volunteers with coaching certifications to provide leadership, executive, business, or performance coaching to the senior level leaders including Executives, Directors, Board members, and teams.Our typical coaching engagement is 15 hours over 6 months where some sessions happen in person and others over phone or video conferencing. For more information about this opportunity and how to apply, please contact Gillian Cook at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Contribute your professional skills in finance, human resources, business, and other disciplines as a volunteer consultant with nonprofits across Washington State. We are in high demand for volunteers with strategic planning, board development, or marketing skills this season. Our Service Corps is an on-call “pool” of professionals whom we contact when a specific project calls for their skill set. You decide if the project and timing are of interest to you. If it’s not the right time, we place you back in the pool to await the next opportunity. If you do accept, you’ll most often work with at least one other Service Corps member, plus representatives of the nonprofit you’re working with. Project length varies, but consultants should plan to work 6-12 hours a month for an average duration of 2 to 4 months. For more information, please contact Yalonda Allen-Sinde at email@example.com.
We’re working on a project to provide emergency planning services to residents in multi-unit low income and senior housing communities and need consultants to support this work. If you have emergency planning skills or experience as a first-responder, this is a great opportunity to help vulnerable communities prepare for an emergency. For details about these projects please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more.
We are seeking volunteers with diverse tech skills and a broad understanding of business technology to serve as planning consultants in the Plan IT program. This 501 Commons cohort program is designed for organizations with low budgets and little to no technology staff. Volunteers will work in pairs with a nonprofit organization and follow a highly structured process to facilitate an assessment of their organization’s current technology systems, help identify key issues and opportunities for improvement. Volunteers will serve a minimum 10-12 hours per month from mid-September to early January. Please contact Crystal Cheairs at email@example.com to learn more.
There are also some great ongoing internal volunteer opportunities:
