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!
We are partnering with Catchafire to provide access to skilled volunteers across the world for a select group of grassroots organizations. We believe that by bringing high-quality talent to you, our grantees, we can maximize the impact you are able to make for the communities you serve.
Jobs that you post on Catchafire will automatically be posted to your Patagonia Action Works profile, so that you can be connected to the skilled professionals in Patagonia’s customer and employee community.
Catchafire is an online tool that connects social organizations with talented professionals looking to donate their skills. This resource provides organizations with expert support in areas like marketing and communications, web development, operations, strategy and more.
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.
No. Patagonia is sponsoring your access to Catchafire, so it’s completely free for your organization.
Your access to Catchafire starts the day you post your first project and will last as long as you are a Patagonia Grantee, or if you do not receive a grant in the coming year from Patagonia, through the end of August 2019.
On average, projects are matched within two weeks. If you are not seeing the response you hoped for, please reach out to email@example.com, and one of Catchafire's Nonprofit Advisors will get in touch to troubleshoot with you.
You can work on an unlimited number of projects throughout your membership, but can only post up to five projects at a time. Once you finish a project, mark it “complete” and you can post a new project. Note: you can post as many Ask An Expert phone calls as you’d like.
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.
Your posted projects are visible to Catchafire’s entire skills-based volunteer community of 40,000+ talented professionals on the platform, and millions more via Catchafire's partnership with LinkedIn. Your posted projects will also automatically appear on your Patagonia Action Works profile. Those who are interested in your organization’s cause area and who have the skills required for your project will be able to apply.
