3 websites to find volunteering opportunities


GuideStar gives you up-to-date nonprofit information at your fingertips.

If you’re looking for nonprofit information, from basic to legitimacy information, GuideStar is your source.

Charity Navigator

Charity Navigator is a fantastic resource for all things nonprofits.

Not only do they have a robust search capability with filtering that helps you locate nonprofits, but they also provide plenty of information to help you become the best philanthropist you can be.


GreatNonprofits is like Yelp and Google wrapped into one but created for the nonprofit sector.

There are two ways you can use this website:

  • A place to do research and read other people’s experiences with nonprofits
  • A searchable database that makes it easy to find nonprofits around you

If you’re looking for nonprofits to volunteer at in your area, these three websites should be your starting point.
