POINT Volunteer App
There’s an app for everything now, including volunteering. POINT’s mobile volunteer app meets people where they are - on their phones - and helps your organization expand its reach.

While many nonprofits rely on older volunteers, there is a growing need to attract younger volunteers as older folks may become less engaged as they age or feel uneasy volunteering during pandemics that could pose a grave risk to their health. Nonprofits are realizing that engaging younger volunteers in meaningful ways is crucial to the long-term success of their organization. What better way to do that than by reaching them where they spend most of their time?
See why community members love the free POINT app
People love POINT’s app because it’s modern, easy to use, tracks their individual impact, and it’s free! We strongly believe that finding ways to engage with your community to do more good should always be accessible.
