Finding a Time and Date to Talk

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!

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.

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.
  • Interviews can be scheduled over the next 14 days. If you are not available until after this timeframe, return to this page when you're ready to select times. We've found connecting as quickly as possible keeps organizations engaged.
  • 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"


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!
