How It Works
Our unique method of matching women’s professional skills to short-term, specific opportunities helps you gain much-needed assistance from qualified professionals who have a true interest in helping your organization achieve its goals. Through our secure network, we connect you with women who are looking to give back and who have the skills and expertise you seek.
Here's how it works:
Complete the registration form by providing your basic profile information and a general understanding of your skilled volunteer needs. Registration is available to all nonprofit organizations in the greater Chicago area, and we qualify all of our organizations through Guidestar using the EIN provided. Once your application is accepted, confirm your account and log in.
Our online tools make it easy for you to find a volunteer that meets your needs, and our staff is here to help you. Identify the general area of need within your organization and select the project that would benefit your nonprofit.
Our system will then recommend volunteers with skills and interests that align with the project, and you will also have the opportunity to search through our full portfolio of volunteers. Select volunteers that might be a good fit for the project and send an invitation directly to those individuals.
Volunteers receive an email in their personal inbox to invite them to respond to your project. When a volunteer is interested, you will receive additional information on how to connect with her. If numerous volunteers respond to your request, we ask that you have an initial conversation with those individuals to identify the right volunteer for the project. Once you find a match, log into WomenOnCall to indicate which volunteer you have selected. We will automatically notify those volunteers who were not selected.
