18 Corporate Volunteering Resources
A Canadian-based organization, Charity Village facilitates an online community where likeminded peers connect and share resources, best practices, and volunteering opportunities. The site provides readers information on topics ranging from work life to human resources to engaging volunteers.
As a CSR consulting firm based in Shanghai, the Collective Responsibility blog is one of the few sources for digging into the sometimes complicated world of volunteering, giving, and strategic impact in China. As the field grows and companies learn to prioritize their global locations, this resource is becoming increasingly relevant.
As the organization that produces the annual study Giving in Numbers, CECP is leading the field in research and best practices. Their website provides a wealth of resources on topics including measuring value, disaster response, shaping the future, and corporate social investment trends.
Corporation for National and Community Service is the nation’s largest grant making organization. As the originator of initiatives like AmeriCorps and the Social Innovation Fund, CNCS is US-centric, but their blog is still a great resource for anyone with its inspiring videos, information on upcoming national service events, and stories of volunteering across the nation.
A site Realized Worth visits regularly for volunteer engagement resources, the intended audience of Energize, Inc. is specifically leaders of volunteers. Their A-Z on volunteer management is an extensive, searchable library of over 100 topics.
Engaging Volunteers is a blog provided by the Volunteer Match team for social change organizations. VolunteerMatch provides an online service that matches volunteers to nonprofits, but just a quick visit to their site will demonstrate that they do much, much more than that. Their blog, written by members of the team as well as third-party experts in the volunteering and technology community, is a must-have source for trends and best practices in the field.
The HandsOn Network is a nonprofit organization focused on community service. The organization is based in Atlanta, Georgia but has a global influence. Their blog informs readers of awards in the field, great ideas for meaningful civic engagement, and stories of recent inspiring events.
