Wiki

VolunteerMatch is a national nonprofit organization dedicated to strengthening communities by making it easier for good people and good causes to connect. It is best known for its public Web public service available at www.volunteermatch.org. The organization also partners with businesses to provide tools for corporate volunteer engagement programs and to support corporate social responsibility initiatives. The organization works with a broad range of clients in technology, manufacturing, packaged goods, financial services, and others industries. In December 2007, the organization's public Web site, VolunteerMatch.org, was listed in TIME magazine's "50 Top 10 Lists of 2007".

Here's a copy of their Vision, directly from their website:

Community

VolunteerMatch is about people. We are a community that believes in the power of volunteering to enrich our lives and the world around us. We believe that in order to be strong, a community must be constantly evolving, increasingly active and evermore diverse. We are proud to be supporting a community that grew to over six million users in 2008.

Relationships

VolunteerMatch is about relationships. We are a service that brings good people and good causes together. We believe that the health of our community can be measured by the relationships formed between volunteers and the nonprofits they serve. Our aim is to build services that overcome the barriers that keep volunteers and nonprofits from finding each other, working together, and developing strong relationships.

Partnerships

VolunteerMatch is about cooperation. We are a network that is only as strong as the partnerships that support it. None of us can build a community alone. We take partnerships seriously and seek to work with nonprofit, business and governmental leaders committed to building stronger relationships with their constituents around volunteering and service.
