Use Your Professional Skills to Make a Difference with CATCHAFIRE

At CPXample, we like to celebrate businesses and organizations that are doing good for their communities in our Brand Philanthropy Series (link). But today we’d like to highlight a website that serves as a great philanthropic resource: CATCHAFIRE.

CATCHAFIRE is a community of individuals striving to push the social good sector forward by focusing on efficient and effective ways to give back. One way we do this is by matching professionals with nonprofits based on their skills, cause interest and time availability.

The company is committed to providing transformational volunteer experiences, so all of the nonprofits it welcomes into its community must have demonstrable impact, strong leadership and be aligned to our mission. Its goal is to provide a significant return on investment for its non-profit partners and save them time, money and resources in finding talented and passionate individuals who have the potential to become long term advocates.

CATCHAFIRE’s manifesto is as follows…

  • WE BELIEVE all social good organizations should have access to top talent.
  • WE BELIEVE all people should have the opportunity to use their talents for good.
  • WE BELIEVE all people should have the opportunity to be transformed by a positive volunteer experience.
  • WE FOSTER an environment rich in reciprocity.
  • WE INCENTIVIZE measurable actions over good intentions.
