LinkedIn members enjoy volunteering

82% of surveyed LinkedIn members want to volunteer their time and skills. We want to help you achieve that goal by connecting you with nonprofits that need you and your service.

Share the causes you care about with your network

By adding the Volunteer and Causes section to your LinkedIn profile, you can share your volunteer experience, the organizations you support, and the causes you care about with your entire network. Including this section provides an implicit endorsement for the organization and helps the organization build its brand on LinkedIn.

Let nonprofits know you want to donate your time and talent

Within your Volunteer and Causes section, you can signal that you’d like to serve on a nonprofit board or do skills-based volunteering. This helps nonprofits find you and it helps your network keep your interests fresh in their minds when thinking of potential volunteers and board members.

Discover opportunities

Find volunteer and board positions on LinkedIn that leverage your skills and interests to meet nonprofit needs. LinkedIn supports trusted providers of skilled volunteering opportunities to ensure that your volunteer experiences are successful. When browsing for opportunities, you can search on Catchafire, NPower, Taproot or VolunteerMatch to see their vetted and prepared projects.
