Connecting Nonprofits with Skilled Volunteers.

In partnership with funders across the region, NSG is excited to bring Catchafire to the region.

Catchafire is a resource designed to assist you to match your critical business needs with skilled volunteers who are looking to spend their time and talent to help you amplify your organization’s impact. We have a limited number of spots still available for access.

There is a limited number of sponsored access scholarships available. If you think your organization would benefit from this resource, please reach out to Katie Pieri at Katie@theNSG.org.

Testimonials

"Kit is an incredible resource for any organization that is looking to seriously engage with its present and future needs and values. She went far above and beyond what I imagined a volunteer on here would be willing to do, and created a great deal of positive community buzz and feedback for our organization in the process. A less dedicated or experienced volunteer may have just given me a few pointers and left me to it; Kit met weekly with me for months, bringing fresh resources and insight to each meeting, and working patiently with myself, our community stakeholders, and our Board, to ensure that we all were on the same page and engaged with the process. If Kit is willing to help you with your project, don't bother looking for anyone else - she will bring value to whatever it is you're trying to do." -Executive Director of a local museum

"Caitlin was amazing to work with. She is very skilled, professional and thorough. Our agency is small and did not have the capacity to successfully complete this project. If it was not for Caitlin we would not have been able to submit this project and we are forever grateful. Some of her most impressive skills were research, writing and articulating our project vision. I would recommend her to any organization" - Executive Director of a local Community Based Organization

“We've worked with volunteers in establishing a much needed, long overdue social media strategy. This is something we absolutely do not have in house skills to complete, nor do we have the budget to out source it. It has been a huge benefit in helping get our messaging out especially during the COVID-19 pandemic and organizationally overall. The professional relationships with Catchafire volunteers are invaluable. I've learned so much from the time spent in working through this project.” -Director of Development for local Education Nonprofit
