About Partnership

We are here to connect people with volunteer opportunities. Whether organizations have one-time projects or ongoing volunteer needs, partner organizations may post volunteer opportunities in our searchable database, where volunteers search for opportunities by interest, skills, keyword, and more! Partner organizations may also search for volunteers based on their volunteer profiles.

Our database, HandsOn Connect, is a full lifecycle volunteer management tool. It offers a variety of comprehensive tools, creating a seamless process for you; from recruitment and communication to generating reports including demographics, hours, retention and human capital achieved. HandsOn Connect also provides easy ways to post partner organization opportunities to social media platforms.

How To Become A Partner

  • Make sure you're eligible! We work with 501(c)(3) nonprofits, faith-based and community-based organizations, schools, universities, government agencies and more. Be sure to read our Partnership Policy.

  • Confirm that your organization isn't already a partner. It's possible that someone else from your organization has already created a profile for your organization. Check our Partner Organization Directory to make sure your organization is not already listed as an active partner. If you find your organization in the Partner Organization Directory, contact us so that we can add you as a contact for your organization.

  • Register your organization in our system by clicking the Sign Up/Registration link at the top left of the page. We will be in touch once we review your application to move forward with solidifying the partnership.
