Catchafire matches professionals who want to volunteer their skills with nonprofits and social enterprises that need their help. They match volunteers and organizations based on a variety of characteristics including skills, cause interests, and time availability.

They help organizations identify their needs as short-term, discrete, and individual-based projects. Their projects are structured in this way to make it easy for professionals to find time to volunteer in the midst of their busy daily lives. They charge nonprofits and social enterprises less than 5% of the cost that they would normally pay for the professional services our volunteers provide. Their service is free for all professionals willing to donate their time. They also help corporations offer their skills-based volunteer opportunities for their employees.

Catchafire's mission is to provide talented individuals with meaningful pro bono experiences in order to build capacity for social good organizations. They believe that all social good organizations should have access to top talent, that all people should have the opportunity to use their talents for good, and that people should have the opportunity to be transformed by a positive volunteer experience.
