The season of giving is upon us! With the winter holidays around the corner, you may be searching for worthwhile volunteer opportunities to commemorate the season. Working in your local food bank or donating money are always generous options, but why not use what you already know? Consider volunteering your professional skills in marketing, HR, strategy, technology, finance, or more, to support the causes you care about.
Taproot Plus, our online volunteer matching platform, helps you find the perfect volunteer opportunity to flex your professional strengths, all while addressing critical social issues that are near and dear to your heart. You can browse all volunteer opportunities and filter by issue area, ranging from animals to youth development.
Here are just 6 cause areas where you can volunteer:
Education is one of Taproot’s most popular issue areas for nonprofits and volunteers. Taproot Plus lists opportunities in schools and organizations from the U.S, the U.K., E.U., Canada, and India. You can share your expertise to draft website content for a school for girls and women, develop a social media strategy for a yoga studio, or more!
Protecting our environment has become more crucial than ever. These nonprofits fight for the earth and make an impact locally and abroad. Your assistance can further their missions and energize you to make a difference this holiday season—and year-round. Interested in developing an Amazonian tree database? If not, we have plenty of other Projects and Sessions!
The holiday season brings cheer and goodwill—but also dangerous cold weather for people who are homeless. Share your skills so these nonprofits can provide shelter and food to those in need. Are you a grant writer who wants to help homeless and displaced children? This could be a perfect way to volunteer this holiday season.
Patrons of the arts don’t have to donate thousands of dollars to their favorite arts organization; a donation of your time and expertise can be just as beneficial. Are you an HR professional who wants to support musicians on the autism spectrum? A nonprofit dedicated to promoting the fine art and culture of Africa and the African Diaspora has several volunteer opportunities as well.
Staying healthy during a pandemic can be challenging, but these nonprofits are stepping up to the plate. Are you a social media guru who cares about health equity for women of color? How about a bookkeeper for an organization providing dental treatments for children? Many more opportunities await!
Fighting for human rights can be an overwhelming challenge, but with support and guidance, these organizations can fulfill their missions. Do you have experience developing personnel policies and interested in eradicating modern-day slavery?
We know time is tight, especially during the holidays. But even 60 minutes can help a nonprofit, small business, or school. So take a short break from wrapping gifts for a one-hour virtual consultation Session.
We’re sure you can find Project or Session in a cause that matters to you. Remember that nonprofits need support after the holiday season, so find a worthwhile issue are and keep checking Taproot Plus to help more nonprofits.
