Nonprofits

New Partnerships and Events

Columbus Gives Back strives to form collaborative relationships with nonprofits in the Central Ohio area. We are looking for relationships that go beyond advocacy. Instead, we want to partner with you to create engaging experiences for our volunteers through your hosted events to benefit more of Columbus. Plus, we have the opportunity to potentially recruit our members into serving as continued volunteers for your nonprofit.

We enjoy partnering with you for recurring opportunities as well as one-time events. For recurring events, it is important that the nonprofit will always have meaningful work for our volunteers, and for one-time events it is important that the event be truly collaborative. In all relationships, we want to connect your mission with the mission of CGB.

General criteria for our events:

  • Event can handle between 5-20 volunteers
  • Shift lasts between 1.5 and 4 hours
  • Most of our volunteers are working professionals, so we try to hold events during evening or weekend hours
  • Activities that facilitate socializing among volunteers are strongly encouraged

Philanthropy of the Month

Philanthropy of the Month is a new CGB initiative. It provides a great way for Columbus Gives Back to either introduce a new collaborative partnership or further develop an existing nonprofit relationship.

When we choose a Philanthropy of the Month, we will collaborate with your nonprofit that month to provide volunteers for (even more of) your hosted events, donate items towards your mission at our monthly happy hour, and create a marketing plan to spread the word about your nonprofit’s mission in Columbus. We want to help publicize the amazing things our philanthropy of the month is doing in our community, and provide opportunities for our members to get involved!

For questions or ideas about collaborations, events, or Philanthropy of the Month, please contact Alfred Yates at alfred@columbusgivesback.org.
