Congratulations on getting an interview! This is a great chance to get to know a nonprofit, understand the project roadmap in greater detail, and also ask any questions. So how do you get started with scheduling? Read on to find out!

Finding a Time and Date to Talk

Catchafire's scheduling makes it easy to coordinate a time to speak with a nonprofit organization. Organizations will reach out and send at least 5 different dates and times, all you need to do is check your calendar and see if any of the proposed times work for you. If so, feel free to select the time as illustrated below.

If you find one of the proposed dates work well for you, fantastic! After selecting it you will be prompted to confirm your phone number. 

If you are not located in the United States, no need to worry, just reference this article for how to schedule your interview.


  • Set your timezone at the top of the page to make sure you're call is at the right time for you.
  • Interviews can be scheduled up to 14 days in advance.
  • Enter a U.S. phone number for the call. If you are located outside of the United States, please check "I'm not in the U.S" and the system will then provide you with a suggested list of free online conference call systems that you can use to help schedule your interview.


Proposing Another Time To Speak

In the event none of the proposed time slots work for you, just click "Send Alternatives." Within our scheduling application you can propose new times.  


Next Steps

After clicking Submit, your selected time slots will be sent to you. Once you select a time, you'll be notified via email and see a confirmation message on your dashboard too.

Once your time has been confirmed, our automated phone system will give you a call on the scheduled date. You can easily set a reminder by clicking "Add to Calendar" from your dashboard. 

Tip: If you have to reschedule your call, don't forget to update the time on your personal calendar as well!
