At Catchafire, we're always looking for ways to make it easier for nonprofits to connect with volunteers. That's why we're excited to announce our latest feature: the ability to post volunteer opportunities via text message.

How it works

This innovative feature is designed to make posting volunteer opportunities as seamless and convenient as possible. Now, nonprofits can post a call anytime, anywhere, right from their mobile device. In a matter of minutes, nonprofits can gain access to skilled volunteer support in critical areas like finance, human resources, and marketing strategy.

The text to post feature is available 24/7, allowing volunteer managers to receive instant, around the clock support on posting new calls and connecting with volunteers. The process is simple - simply text 'HELP' or 'POST' to +1 (646) 681-5341 and you'll receive a text with call suggestions. Catchafire will then send a text with suggested topics for one hour consultation calls. The volunteer manager can respond with the question they’d like to talk to a skilled volunteer about. You can choose from pre-written calls, or write your own! Our system will automatically create a new call, making it visible to our network of thousands of skilled volunteers around the world.


“Our nonprofit partners are short on time and trying to keep lots of balls in the air. It’s a lot. We built the Catchafire bot to be there for them - always, any time. We’re here to help.”

Ghazal Badiozamani
Chief Product Officer, Catchafire



The benefits of one hour calls

One hour calls have a variety of benefits:

  • Save grantmakers and nonprofits time and money
  • Nonprofits get quick answers to big problems that affect organizational sustainability
  • Calls save philanthropy thousands of dollars in consulting expenses
  • Nonprofits receive critical assessments of their needs, priorities, and challenges
  • Calls get nonprofits grant-ready and strengthen small, grassroots nonprofits in particular
  • Volunteers serve as an on-demand advisory board, building long-term, impactful relationships with nonprofits

We believe this new feature will make a significant difference in the way our nonprofit partners operate, paving the way for even more impactful connections. So why wait? Starting today, nonprofits can post their volunteer opportunities via text message and experience the convenience of our new Text to Post feature!

We're committed to helping nonprofits achieve their mission by connecting them with the right volunteers. This new feature is just one more way we're making that easier.
