The Giving DuPage volunteer portal helps connect volunteers to organizations

Through filters on the volunteer portal webpage, anyone can find the volunteer opportunity that’s right for them. This portal also allows smaller organizations to reach new people to volunteer. “Currently, there are about 405 nonprofits who are registered with the portal. And so for community members, they can go into this portal, and they can find volunteer opportunities,” says Janell Robinson, a board member with Giving DuPage. “There are about 975 or more volunteer opportunities available. And annually, we link a thousand or more people with nonprofits.”
