Here’s an easy way to promote your volunteer opportunity and/or event for free within a community of caring people (YourCause.com).
If you are on YourCause, make sure you have administrator access. If not, you will not be able to do any of the following. To find out how to gain administrator access to your nonprofit page, email Charity@YourCause.com for more information.
Here’s how it works:
- Sign up at YourCause.com (if you haven’t already)
- Log on (must have administrator access)
- Add your volunteer opportunity
The volunteer opportunity will then be shown on your charity page and our community volunteer page while quickly transforming into it’s very own ‘event’ page (keep reading to learn more about event pages).
Here’s a behind-the-scenes image of what an administrator adding an event looks like:
Easy enough, right?
You can choose an Event/Volunteer Name, Type, Time, Date, Venue and more! You can even say what skills are required, depending on the volunteering assignment or function.
From there click “add” and within seconds it will automatically show on your charity page and be fed into the YourCause community..you will even get your own event page!
See an example below:
Within the event/volunteer page you can upload photos, share the event and more. Think about it this way – you now have your personal URL to email, tweet or facebook your special volunteer opportunity/event!
YourCause focuses on creating tools for nonprofits that allow them to harness the power of the web. Our volunteer functionality makes it easy, accessible and functional for nonprofits to promote their volunteer events. Along the way you will get some great free web space and hopefully a few volunteer sign ups along the way!
Best of luck and again, if you ever need any support or want to figure out just how to get involved email Charity@YourCause.com!
