Donate Today & Multiply Your Impact: The Matching Challenge is On!

Multiply Your Impact color 1Your tax-deductible donation to VolunteerConnect is a year-round investment in helping Central New Jersey nonprofits survive and thrive. You can make a difference in our communities; together, we can do more!

If you’ll rise to the challenge and donate today, our board of trustees will match your contribution! That’s how much we believe in the value of VolunteerConnect!

Local nonprofit organizations count on us to connect them with skilled volunteers and effective board trustees who multiply their impact. It’s hard to imagine our communities without the services offered by these essential organizations.

Some provide relief to families living on the streets; some fulfill wishes of foster children. Others connect rescued animals with loving owners, promote the arts, or empower disadvantaged women to find work and support their families. Nonprofits provide services without which our communities would be devastated.

Yet, only 1 in 10 nonprofit organizations has the resources they need to serve our communities. By donating to VolunteerConnect, you can change this. We help nonprofits of all kinds to maximize their ability to support the needs of thousands of local individuals and families.

We’re invested in the critically important work of supporting all nonprofits through the creative, efficient and impactful power of skilled volunteers. Will you join us?
