Catchafire is an online platform for virtual, skills-based volunteering. Through Catchafire, professionals are able to directly support causes they care about by helping nonprofits with projects that match their skill sets. And because projects can be completed from anywhere, Catchafire makes it possible for nonprofits and skilled volunteers to connect for good, from all around the world!
Skills-based volunteering is a high impact form of volunteering that allows an individual to donate his or her professional skills and expertise, which in turn allows a nonprofit to build its capacity and focus more efficiently on its mission.
Skilled volunteers help nonprofits fill critical knowledge and staffing gaps, they work as thought partners on strategic projects, and they complete specific projects that require specialized skills, training, or experience. Very often, the relationships between volunteers and nonprofits extend far beyond the scope of the initial project that brought them together.
A specific example of skills-based volunteering is a marketing professional who volunteers to help a nonprofit create a marketing strategy.
We are partnering with Catchafire to provide employees with access to virtual, skills based volunteering opportunities to provide valuable resources and operational support to nonprofit organizations.
The nonprofit will review your application to decide whether they want to move forward with an interview. If so, you will be contacted by Catchafire to schedule the call. Nonprofits are encouraged to decide promptly, but there is no set timeline for when they will reply.
After the interview, you can log into your account dashboard and ACCEPT or PASS on the match. Once both parties accept, you are officially matched and can begin the project. If you need to exchange any materials or have follow-up conversations to determine if it is a good fit after the interview, you are encouraged to do so.
If there are volunteer opportunities available in your region, you'll have the option to filter by location. However, since all Catchafire engagements are meant to be completed virtually, we encourage you to focus on finding projects that best fit your skills & interests, regardless of location.
Yes! All projects have been designed to allow you to work with the nonprofit organization remotely.
Projects vary in length from 1 to 40 hours, depending on the project type. Estimated hours are indicated for each project.
Yes! In fact, we recommend you apply to 2-4 projects at any given time. This will maximize your chances of matching. If you end up being selected for too many projects, you can always withdraw your application before or after you interview with the nonprofit. Once you say yes though, we ask that you honor your commitment to work with the organization.
Repair the World mobilizes Jews and their communities to take action to pursue a just world, igniting a lifelong commitment to service. Together with Amplifier, Avodah, Birthright Israel Excel, Hillel International, Honeymoon Israel, JCC Association of North America, JDC Entwine, Jewish Federations of North America, Jewish Women International, JPRO Network, Moishe House, NJHSA, OLAM, One Table, REALITY and Schusterman Family Foundation, we are creating a movement for the Jewish community to take action by contributing professional skills to nonprofits in need.
We know that volunteers are more impactful when they learn about why the work matters. In addition to Catchafire’s support, we offer contextual education to deepen your experience by reflecting on Jewish values, your role as a volunteer, working across lines of difference and the larger context in which nonprofits operate. Join us to catalyze one million acts of service and learning by 2030.
