The Volunteer Makers Platform

Harness the power of your community with Volunteer Makers

Volunteer Makers is a transformational platform that helps organisations in the voluntary sector manage, grow and engage their volunteer community.

It allows you to match the needs of your organisation to the skills and interests of your supporters, letting people support you in a way that that suits them and directly helps you. It has helped organisations substantially grow their supporter base and diversify their volunteer workforce.

Volunteer Makers comes with a challenge database, social media integration tools, skills matching, communications tools, events managements and powerful reporting tools to allow you to measure the financial impact of volunteering to the criteria of major funding bodies.
