It can sometimes be overwhelming navigating our platform but we're here to help! Please see below for some best practices on posting and managing projects most effectively.
Don't do too much!
With all the projects we offer, it can be tempting to start doing a lot right away. However, we recommend posting no more than 3 projects maximum in the beginning. That way, you can get a feel for what goes into managing a project and how to dedicate precious time and resources to it!
Start with a consultation call
While it can be exciting to hop right into one of our projects, sometimes it can be helpful to start off with a one-hour consultation call with one of our volunteer professionals. These calls are designed to give a bit of advice on a topic rather than produce a deliverable like our projects do. It can be a great way to kick-start a project or understand what you might need before taking one on!
You can repeat projects
If you find that you're doing the same project and/ or task over and over it might be helpful to post it as a project! We've found that organizations will sometimes post the same project multiple times to have different volunteers assist with repetitive (but important!) tasks.
Or give us a call!
If you're still feeling a bit lost and need assistance assessing your organization's needs and which projects would best address them, feel free to set up a call with one of our Nonprofit Advisors. You can do so by scheduling some time right on our calendar- we look forward to speaking with you!
If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to us using the chat bubble on the bottom-right of your screen (for keyboard-only and screen-reader users, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org) and we'd be happy to help!
