So you've just completed a project or call on Catchafire - now what? First of all, congratulations! Giving back is no small feat, and we're here to salute you. Read below for a few options and next steps for staying involved.

Rate Your Experience

After you've completed your project or call, you'll see the option on your dashboard to "Rate experience".

You will be able to provide a public testimonial about your experience. We'll also ask you to rate your experience with Catchafire overall. Rating your experience helps Catchafire and the nonprofit you worked with collect feedback to improve the volunteer experience in the future.

We also love to learn from our volunteers how they prepared for their project or call, and whether or not they plan to stay in touch with the volunteer manager. You can then provide private, anonymous feedback about your experience, if you wish.

Spread the Word on LinkedIn

Many Volunteers like to share their accomplishments with their professional network. We've made it easy to do so by seamlessly integrating with LinkedIn. At a minimum, we recommend selecting the "Share on LinkedIn" button on your dashboard to post about the project you just finished.

We also encourage you to make Catchafire a more permanent part of your profile. This way, folks know you're committed to giving back and are constantly learning and develop your skills in the mean time! We've made this part easy: copy-paste the below bullets into your profile and be sure to fill in the blanks:

Volunteer, [your professional title or skillset]

  • Assist nonprofits with mission critical projects to advance their mission and goals

  • Contributed approximately [$ Impact number]  through [# of projects] engagements with nonprofit organizations

  • Learn more about my impact: [Add Media Files]

💡Tip: You can also share your Project Impact page on your social media channels. Navigate to "My profile" from the dropdown menu under your profile picture, and you will see the following blue banner with the option to share.

Hit the Follow Button

Stay connected with the Organization you've volunteered for by following them on their various social media channels - they'd love the support!

You can also follow along with Catchafire on Instagram, LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter.

Get Started on a New Project and Expand your Network

The best way to continue supporting the nonprofit community on Catchafire is through continuing to offer your skills! We always recommend trying out a few different project types (including a mix of 1-hour calls and full length projects) to really get a feel for what you like best. Find a new project today!
