Executive Service Corps of Washington, a program of 501 Commons


Volunteers can be the catalyst for ensuring that community needs are met, yet many nonprofits lack the resources to adequately prepare for volunteer involvement. As a result, volunteers are often underutilized and can become discouraged by poorly managed opportunities. Use your professional skills to empower a nonprofit to fully harness the time and talent of much-needed volunteers, by creating the nuts and bolts of an effective volunteer program.

VIP Volunteer Management Corps (VMC) program connects professionals to nonprofits across Washington State needing to strengthen the ways in which they engage volunteers. 501 Commons is currently recruiting nonprofit professionals with experience in either volunteer management, human resources, fund development, board development, or project management. As part of this opportunity, consultants will also receive our volunteer management best practices training.

You will be paired with another volunteer consultant and matched with a local nonprofit to assess and address key issue areas of the organization’s volunteer program. Consultants will volunteer at a total of 25 hours over the course of four months (June- September 2020). Some weekday availability is required, though much of the work can be completed remotely. Your consulting efforts will equate to a $5,000 in-kind donation to the organization you are partnered with!

Interested in volunteering? Questions? Please contact Stephanie Heffner to set-up a time to talk further about this opportunity.

Mission Statement

We all rise when nonprofits thrive. 501 Commons serves nonprofits as experts, innovators, and partners. Our passion is to amplify the strengths of nonprofits--so people and communities flourish.

Guiding Principle: Build on strengths

We build on the strengths of individual leaders and organizations.

  • We respect each nonprofit's unique culture and history.
  • We honor the expertise in your organization, as well as the expertise of our Service Corps members.
  • We customize our services to fit your needs.
  • We share best practices and collaborate with other service providers in order to better serve nonprofits.

We value - and practice - collaboration. In a sector that's always low on resources, collaboration can lead us to solving problems in new, more cost effective ways.

We believe that dialogue between nonprofits, philanthropy, government, and business is essential to tackling the serious problems that affect our people and our planet.
