The most advanced platform anywhere for connecting skilled volunteers to nonprofits is now available in Massachusetts. It is free to both individuals and organizations. A series of innovative, easy-to-use Guides lets you search for your way to make a difference in 3 categories: by giving your time, by making a donation, or by providing needed items. You can also search by cause, place, time, age, virtual vs. in-person, type of role, and frequency.
A Statewide Guide, operated by Massachusetts Service Alliance, includes all of the regional Guides (see list below) plus some additional opportunities. Guides for some regions not currently listed here are planned for the future. Each Guide and the organization sponsoring it is listed below. Select the Guide for your region for best results in finding local volunteer opportunities. To see all opportunities, search the Statewide Guide.
This platform was designed by Inspiring Service, a nonprofit technology developer, and Massachusetts is one of the first states to make it available. Encore Boston Network is pleased to be a partner in bringing this exciting new tool to our members, to all who want to do good work and to our state.
