making group volunteer events easier

VO Connect for Charities and Non-Profits

Could your organization benefit from skilled or group volunteers?

VO Connect is here to help.

The goal of VO Connect is to foster connections between Ottawa’s for-profit and non-profit communities. We work on behalf of our member organizations to find meaningful corporate partners who can provide you with groups of 5 to 50+ volunteers, depending on the size and complexity of your project.

We know that you spend every minute of your workday trying to make a positive impact on our community, and you don’t have time to recruit and train dozens of volunteers to help with your one-time community projects. VO Connect simplifies that process by coordinating all the people, training, schedules, and supplies you need for your community volunteer project. VO Connect also offers partnership matching services that aim to build sustainable partnerships between businesses and NFP organizations for ongoing volunteer programs.
