Volunteer Fairfax has 2 great ways for you to share your expertise: Skills Based Volunteering and BoardLink.
Skills Based and Pro Bono volunteering are both a strategic approach to building nonprofit capacity and a way to provide employees with real leadership experience. Your employees can provide strong professional skills, experience, networks and a passion for their community to a nonprofit’s team.
How does your company fit?
All companies have something to offer the nonprofit community and skills based and pro bono volunteering are designed to help you find an opportunity or a group of opportunities which fit within your organization’s strategic plan.
Are you part of the banking industry? You could help a nonprofit develop their research and marketing plan. By engaging your marketing and advertising staff, this can help a nonprofit to improve their strategic outreach, communications and community awareness.
Are you part of the hotel industry? You can help a nonprofit engage in life skills development and career exploration through your customer service and human resources departments. This service can help a nonprofit to greatly strengthen their offerings to their client base.
Are you part of the consulting industry? Your staff can engage with nonprofits in a variety of ways by helping a nonprofit compile research and metrics on their programs you will provide them with valuable information to continue to develop their programs. By providing analysis and reporting on this, or existing, research you are able to facilitate the development of an annual report or graphic and visual displays for the community.
