POINT Page (Volunteer Hub)
Give a single call to action to volunteers and compile everything in one place with your POINT page and volunteer hub. It includes your organization’s profile information, your public event signups, a donation button, and your needs registry (if applicable). Share your POINT page link on social media, post it on your website, email it to volunteers, and blast it out in newsletters.Read More
Want to add your organization’s POINT volunteer opportunities on your website? We make it easy with our web integration. Create a volunteer event or program on POINT and opportunities on your website update automatically. Volunteers can sign up on your website, and all data is captured on your POINT admin dashboard.Read More
POINT Mobile App
Volunteers nationwide are on POINT! By posting your events on POINT, new people in your area can engage with your organization. Plus, your current volunteers can use POINT’s app to sign up for your events, and they get a personalized feed that keeps your organization at the top to increase their engagement with your mission. (We promise all POINT users get access to the same great features, whether they use the mobile app or web platform.)Read More
Shareable Event URLs
When you create a public or private event on your POINT dashboard, you get a shareable link you can send through email or social media, which enables volunteers to sign up easily. Whether they use the link, mobile app, or website, all the data goes directly to your admin dashboard.
Create, edit, and manage volunteering events recurring weekly or monthly. Once an event series is created, admins have the flexibility to make edits to only one or to all following events. Ongoing events are marked with a badge for simple management.Read More

Unlimited Volunteer Database
Whether you have 10 volunteers or 10,000, those relationships are important. You can add an unlimited number of volunteers to your account for no cost. Volunteer profiles on POINT are dynamic and clickable with volunteering and giving history, contact info, and the ability to add notes. Your volunteer database on POINT can be sorted, filtered, or used to run custom reports and data exports.

Unlimited Admin Users
Create admin accounts for your entire team at no cost—your Volunteer Coordinator, Executive Director, Development Coordinator, or even your Board Chair! The account owner can set and change admin permissions as needed to divide and conquer your workload. Admin capabilities include event, group and program management, verifying volunteer hours, viewing statistics, and customizing their own notifications. This enables your whole team to work together seamlessly, and collectively use the power of data to boost your volunteer engagement.
Easy Event Sign Up
Volunteers sign up by claiming a volunteer spot on events but you can also easily assign or reserve spots to be filled only by certain volunteers or groups when necessary. Tracking volunteer attendance is simple using the admin dashboard and event impact is automatically reported.Read More
Volunteer Event Shift Management
Adding shift times to your volunteer event sign up is easy, and you can even use shifts to have volunteers sign up for specific tasks and roles. Plus, you can sort by shifts for easy volunteer check-in.Read More
Volunteer coordinators tell us that group management is one of their biggest time sinks, so we listened and created unmatched features to tackle this. You can create unlimited groups and sub-groups. Use groups to create private events, easily email certain volunteers, create group-specific data reports, and tag volunteers. Use our group functions to specify things like ‘Background-checked Volunteers’ or ‘Local High School Students’.
Nonprofit and Corporate Partnerships
POINT’s tools give a serious engagement boost to your partnerships with businesses and other organizations. Private or co-hosted events are easy to create and share out, and you can send the company an automatic report of their team’s volunteer hours post-event. They see their impact and you grow your partnerships.
Have a company you partner with regularly? Invite them to join POINT for Work so you can co-host events and share signups and data!Read More

Volunteer App Features
Volunteers can access your organization’s opportunities on the mobile app or web platform and your own website. Each volunteer on POINT gets their own Volunteer Impact Profile to track their impact, total up their donations, and easily see the organizations they support.Read More
Automatic Volunteer Time Tracking
By checking a volunteer in at an event, you approve their hours. We automatically track hours for events posted on POINT, but volunteers can add their own outside hours to their POINT profile using either the mobile app or web platform.Read More
Self-Submit Volunteer Hours
Don’t lose out on the reporting the work volunteers completed on their own time! Volunteers can also self-submit hours for your organization, and POINT notifies admins so they can approve, edit, or deny those hours.Read More
Volunteer Reminders and Notifications
We bug your volunteers so you don’t have to. When a volunteer signs up for your event on POINT, they can easily integrate it to their calendar, plus we send out push notifications and email reminders. We even send out thank you emails after an event ends! You do less work and cut your no-show rates. (FYI—across POINT nonprofits the attendance rate is 97%!)
Your volunteers receive automatic reminders to sign up for events you post, but you can also mass email volunteers from your POINT dashboard. Sort by all active volunteers, specific groups, or people who signed up for a certain event. No more copying and pasting into email—just select the volunteers you want, write, and send!
Micro Donation Platform
Nearly 80% of volunteers also donate money to the organizations they give time to. Your supporters can use POINT to give money with a tap—no amount is too small or too large! Their impact is tracked in their POINT profile, and you get a report of all the volunteers who have donated to your organization.Read More
In-Kind Giving Registry
Think of POINT’s In-Kind Giving Registry as a nonprofit version of a wedding registry. Request items your nonprofit needs that can be dropped off or shipped to your location, or ask for funds to purchase specific items. Our in-kind registry is especially powerful during emergency situations for disaster relief.Read More

POINT makes it super easy to compile and export data. You can export all tracked data, or only export specific types of data (e.g., total volunteer hours for a certain month) or data for certain groups (e.g., all data related to one corporate partner). You can use data reports in Excel/Numbers by exporting as a CSV file.
