WHY DOES OUR COMMUNITY NEED charitySTRONG?
There are more than 4,800 nonprofits in Greater Rochester that together are the backbone of our community, providing vital services to thousands of people. Our community is also fortunate to have passionate people with skills that could be beneficial to our local nonprofits.
That’s where charitySTRONG comes in. As an online platform, charitySTRONG trains and provides resource materials for volunteers on board governance and what it takes to be a great board member. It then allows nonprofits in need of board members and volunteers seeking board or committee service, the opportunity to learn more about each other, connect, and match the volunteer leadership needs of the nonprofit with the interests and passions of individual candidates.
charitySTRONG CAN HELP YOU:
· Find volunteer leadership opportunities with nonprofits in our community that you want to support with your time and talent.
· Recruit volunteers to serve as directors on nonprofit boards and committees through an online platform.
· Provide access to training and support for nonprofit volunteer leadership.
charitySTRONG builds a bridge between community-minded individuals and organizations that can benefit from active and engaged board members.
