It's easy to bring all your prospective volunteers up to speed with Document Manager!
As a VolunteerMatch Member, you can automatically share up to three documents with prospective volunteers as soon as they express interest in one of your opportunities. Make sure they have instant access to useful information and important documents, such as application forms, volunteer handbooks, detailed position descriptions and more! Use the same combination of documents or customize them based on each opportunities’ needs.
