Mission Statement

Catchafire's mission is to improve the quality of the volunteer experience by providing the opportunity for people to volunteer their skills in a powerful way. Our vision is to make it easy for every professional to volunteer their skills if they want to and to make it easy for every nonprofit and social enterprise to access and effectively use skills-based volunteers.

We believe in providing efficient, effective, and meaningful volunteer experiences for both volunteers and the organizations with whom they work. We believe that a good volunteer experience can transform someone's life, and we also know that a bad one can turn someone away from giving their time forever.

Description

Catchafire matches professionals who want to volunteer their skills with nonprofits and social enterprises that need their help. We match volunteers and organizations based on a variety of characteristics including skills, cause interests, and time availability.

We help organizations identify their needs as short-term, discrete, and individual-based projects. Our projects are structured in this way to make it easy for professionals to find time to volunteer in the midst of their busy daily lives.

We charge nonprofits and social enterprises less than 5% of the cost that they would normally pay for the professional services our volunteers provide. Our service is free for all professionals willing to donate their time. We also help corporations offer our skills-based volunteer opportunities for their employees.

Catchafire is a New York City-based, for-profit social mission business and a certified B-Corporation.
