Learn more about each step in the registration process below:
- Create your administrator profile
- Select your organization account type (Member vs. Basic)
- Select your organization type
- Create your organization profile
- Enter your payment information (Member accounts only)
- Create your first volunteer opportunity
Create your administrator profile
The first step to registering your organization is creating your administrator profile. You'll use the email and password you enter here to log into VolunteerMatch.org. You will need to verify your email before you can move on to the next step.
If you already have an account for yourself, you will not need to create a new one. Just log into your account, then click here
We know you might not be the only one recruiting volunteers at your organization, so we let you add as many of your colleagues to the account as necessary. Each admin has their own individual account and login credentials, which they can use to connect to the organization's profile. For more information on managing your organization's admins, click here.
Select your organization account type (Member vs. Basic)
Once you've created your personal account and verified your email, you'll be asked to select your account type (Member or Basic). While you'll still be able to post opportunities and recruit volunteers with a Basic account, we invite you to become a supporting Member to take full advantage of all VolunteerMatch has to offer you!
Plus, those who sign up for Member Benefits during registration will receive a 30-day free trial period on us!
As a nonprofit, VolunteerMatch relies upon Member support to provide our community with quality volunteer recruitment and management services. When you become a Member, you'll help us continue our mission of connecting good people with good causes.
Select your organization type
Next, you'll want to select your organization type (e.g., 501(c) nonprofit, hospice or public school) and fill out the requested information.
Want to know if your organization qualifies for an account on VolunteerMatch? Learn more here.
If you're registering as a 501(c) nonprofit and our system doesn't recognize your EIN, click here to learn how to proceed with your registration.
Create your organization profile
The next step is to create your organization's profile. The information you provide here will give potential volunteers more information about your organization and the type of work you do. Volunteers often want to know more about the cause they're supporting, so we recommend being as thorough as possible when filling this out!
You can also give a face to your organization by uploading a profile picture or logo (images 150 pixels by 150 pixels work best) and linking to your website or social media channels.
Enter your payment information (Member accounts only)
If you selected that you'd like to become a Member, you'll be asked to select your payment plan (Monthly vs. Annual) and enter your payment information at this point in time. You will not be charged until your 30-day trial period ends.
Please note, we can only accept payments via credit card at this point in time.

Create your first volunteer opportunity
Finally, you'll create your first volunteer opportunity! Once your organization is approved, your opportunity will be posted to the site and visible to the 35,000+ volunteers who visit VolunteerMatch every day!
Your organization will receive an email whenever a new volunteer expresses interest in your opportunity.
