Public-Use API Access

VolunteerMatch makes certain data freely available under our Public-Use API Access Agreement. This data is a synopsis of active volunteer opportunities and nonprofit organization information, offered to users in a searchable format managed by you, and links to such listings on To access the data directly from VolunteerMatch, we provide a unique API key that allows you to access the Public-Use API, subject to the Public-Use API Access Agreement.
