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
