By default, your volunteer opportunity is visible for a roughly 20-mile radius around the ZIP code it is listed within.
We offer Multi-ZIP, which allows you to extend that radius outward for 90 days of service by purchasing additional ZIP codes at $0.50/ZIP code. Multi-ZIP makes your opportunity available in all ZIP codes in a specific city, county, metro area, state, or even nationwide.
Once you've created and published your opportunity, an Expand Zip Code Coverage button will appear right under its name in your dashboard.
Select the Expand ZIP Code Coverage button to open an EXPAND COVERAGE section that displays the levels of zip code coverage in a drop-down menu.
You can choose coverage for an entire city, county, metro area, state, or nationwide. The zip code coverage fee is determined by the number of zip codes included in a selected coverage area. If your organization has a Member account, you'll receive a 15% discount off the zip code coverage fee. The discount is automatically calculated on the screen.
Once the zip code coverage level has been selected from the drop-down menu, the section will refresh to display the number of zip codes covered and the amount charged.
If you don't wish to pay this fee for 90 days of coverage expansion, simply select 'CANCEL.' If you'd like to move forward with the expanded coverage, select 'SAVE' and you will be redirected to the payment page.
Your Multi-ZIP service will activate upon payment completion and is valid for 90 days. The expiration date will be noted on your Order History page. Once expired, you can repurchase the same coverage for three new months of service by following the same steps above.

- Our system does not allow users to select individual ZIP codes in which to post their volunteer opportunities when purchasing Multi-ZIP coverage. You must choose from the designated choice areas (i.e., city, county, metro area, state, or national).
- Multi-ZIP is only attached to the opportunity with which you choose to expand coverage, so opportunity deletion means coverage removal. We recommend you do not delete opportunities with Multi-ZIP.
- Your purchase of Multi-ZIP only supports the location in which you've expanded, and cannot be shifted to a new area in the case you change your opportunity's zip code until the service has expired.
- Once your additional coverage is in place, it's a good idea to adjust the title, location fields and opportunity description to indicate that your opportunity is available countywide, statewide etc.
