Besa's Nonprofit and Volunteer Teams

How can Besa support my nonprofit with volunteers?

Besa’s Nonprofit Partnership team works directly with you to understand your volunteer needs and challenges. Then, our Volunteer Experience team will collaborate to curate volunteer opportunities and ensure community members are showing up when and where you need it most.

Recruit and Manage Volunteers

Volunteer management can be time consuming. We’re here to help.

Community members can find your organization’s meaningful volunteer experiences on Besa’s Impact Platform. Besa’s team keeps close tabs on every volunteer experience to ensure shifts are covered and to promote shifts that need additional support.

Amplify Capacity

Fulfill your mission while we meet ours—connecting people to community service.

Your team is focused on mission-critical work. We get it. Besa volunteers know that community service requires effort! When volunteers sign up on the platform, they’ll see exactly what to expect—and they’ll show up ready to do good so your team can hustle harder on other tasks.

Expand Outreach

When more people hear your story, they’ll spread the word.

Besa’s team activates both community volunteers and support from employees through our business partnerships. We’ve seen volunteers become passionate nonprofit advocates, board members, and more! We also love to share stories of impact about our nonprofit partners as we do more good, together.

The Besa Difference

Besa is more than a platform. It’s an impactful volunteer resource for nonprofits. Our civic engagement experts will collaborate with you to curate volunteer experiences that generate the highest impact so your team can expand capacity and broaden outreach.

They add capacity. They add attention to detail. They add a level of professionalism. And they also give us confidence that the volunteers we’re going to work with have an understanding of the work we do and the work they will do when they’re with us.

Besa has been a blessing. The work at Star House serving youth experiencing homelessness is often behind the scenes. Besa is always willing to help out where we need it most. Whether it's sorting clothes, wrapping food or even just cleaning, Besa volunteers do it with pride and cheer. Being an organization that is on the "frontline" it's comforting to know that organizations like Besa have our back.

We are so grateful for your organization and all of the wonderful volunteer groups that you send our way–the OCNA group was no exception. I am still blown away by the amount of work they completed in just a short amount of time! Amazing!
