“Point- Great for non-profits”

Pros: We use Point to recruit volunteers for our upcoming events, such as fundraising events, tabling/community events, and more. Their interface is extremely easy to use on our end, and very straightforward for users as well. The clean design makes volunteering a snap. We couldn’t be happier with Point.

“Excelent app”

Overall: Not only have we been able to keep all of our volunteer hours in one place. It’s very user friendly and saves a lot of admin time.

Pros: We love that it’s free for us to use, it’s easy for the volunteers to use, and we’ve been able to reach more people at the same time as we manage our
own events.
