Phone Calls vs. Projects

Projects are fully scoped and range anywhere from 5 to 50 hours. 

Projects are great if you need a Volunteer to do something for you - like design a logo or build your Organization a new donor database.

Phone consultations get you 1 hour of a volunteer's time. 

Phone consultations are great if you need a Volunteer to discuss something with you - like brainstorming a name for a new program, or choosing the right platform to build your website on. They're more freeform, so you can easily customize a post for your needs!

Browse Categories

We've divided our project menu into 8 broad categories (Executive Leadership, Finance & Operations, Fundraising, Human Resources, Marketing & Communications, Professional Development, Program Management, and Technology) that we've found to represent the most common needs of nonprofits. Select each category to see different bite-sized projects that you can complete:
