      Catchafire Philadelphia Launch Event


      What is Catchafire?

      Catchafire is the largest online pro bono community in the US. We make it easy for people to donate their skills to nonprofits on by matching these incredible volunteers with causes they are passionate about - sort of like an online dating site. Behind the scenes we educate organizations on how to create great projects for the volunteers. Since 2009, we've helped create millions of dollars of impact to hundreds of nonprofits and social enterprises.

      We also partner with companies, like Blue Cross Blue Shield and MTV, to bring skills-based volunteering to their employees. We combine our matching our technology and expertise with the skill sets of the company's employees and align them with causes that are important to the company's culture.

      Why is Catchafire coming to Philly?

      Over the last six months, Catchafire has partnered with a small group of nonprofit leaders and organizations in Philadelphia. We have been impressed by the passion and professionalism of our current partners and the strength of the Philadelphia nonprofit community in general. We are eager to build on this early success by investing in Philadelphia and our ability to serve more organizations across the region. As in our expansions to Boston and North Carolina’s Raleigh-Durham Triangle, we look to connect with local community leaders to understand the volunteer & nonprofit landscape, culture, and major influences in the area as a first step. We then invite great organizations to spearhead our involvement in the community by becoming Founding Member organizations.
