Catchafire Matches Professionals to Volunteer Projects [Video]

| Tuesday October 26th, 2010 | 2 Comments

Catchafire creates structured, skills-based volunteer opportunities for professionals who want to give back in a meaningful way.  Rachael Chong founded the company, which launched its beta site in September, after experiencing the void from both angles.  As an investment banker wanting to volunteer her “newly minted financial skills” and as a nonprofit leader looking for marketing and strategy help, Chong noted that there was no easy solution.  I sat down with Chong at the recent Socap10 to learn about the organization she’s created to change the way people volunteer. Watch the video to learn how Catchafire fills a gap in the market, how you can get involved, and more.

    Great video, I loved learning about Rachael’s background and the philosophy behind Catchafire. This is just the type of site I was looking for. I plan on submitting a request to volunteer soon.
