The main role at Giving DuPage is to connect volunteers and donors with local volunteer opportunities and ways to give back. The most critical way we achieve this is by offering volunteer support through a FREE resource, the Volunteer Portal.
Since launching the latest version of the Volunteer Opportunity Portal, Giving DuPage has generated over 2,000+ volunteer referrals. The portal includes hundreds of local nonprofit organizations, promotes nearly 700 active volunteer & service engagement opportunities, as well as promotes upcoming nonprofit events. To access the Volunteer Opportunity Portal select the “Volunteer Search Portal” image on the upper right of the webpage.
Once redirected to the Volunteer Opportunity Portal, users can see which organizations posted recently, as well as the Giving DuPage Twitter feed, where we actively tweet volunteer opportunities posted in the portal to over 1,800 followers.
Choose the ‘Volunteer’ navigation tab to search for the latest volunteer opportunities, in-kind donation requests & employment opportunities, or you can search the ‘Nonprofits’ tab to see if your organization is listed. Nonprofit organizations can also share volunteer photos or a video on the profile page.
The Volunteer Portal is a free resource that measures the effectiveness of recruiting new volunteers, promoting upcoming events and creates awareness for your organization!
