Looking for ways you can help others?  The Web has made finding the right volunteer opportunity just a click away.  Of course, you can start by checking with your own favorite charity first.  Or you can go online to connect with your next volunteer work: 

  • Network For Good (www.networkforgood.org/volunteer) allows you to search for volunteer opportunities by zip code, distance, and by interest area. You can also search for a specific volunteer opportunity by organization name.

  • Volunteer Match (www.volunteermatch.org) can be searched by zip code, category, and distance. You can then sign up automatically by email for those volunteer opportunities you are interested in.

  • Corporation for National and Community Service (www.nationalservice.gov) has a lot of info as well as an interactive program selector.  Their family of programs include:

  • Guidestar (www.guidestar.org) includes a searchable database of nearly one million nonprofit organizations in the United States.

  • Idealist (www.idealist.org) posts volunteer opportunities that can be searched by area of focus, project description, country, state, city, skills needed, language needed, and age. You can also indicate the time frame in which you would like to volunteer.

  • Create the Good website and HandsOn Network website are both great resources for finding volunteer opportunities and ways to get involved in philanthropy.
