COLUMBUS, Ohio--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Volunteering just got easier. Columbus-based tech nonprofit, POINT, has released a free app - available today - to make volunteering and finding volunteers simple.
In a world where everything is on-demand - i.e. booking rooms, getting rides, and ordering food all from your phone - it’s time for charity to get up to speed. POINT App allows users to filter local volunteer events by causes they care about, and sign up in-app to volunteer by just tapping ‘Go’.
POINT is currently available in Columbus, Ohio. Users pick causes they care about, and charities and organizations post volunteer opportunities for users to attend. Many people want to get involved in their communities, but don’t know how to start. POINT gives users a starting place; Habitat for Humanity MidOhio, Faith Mission of Ohio, and the Furniture Bank of Central Ohio are just some of the organizations posting events on POINT.
- Free and easy: Find and sign up for volunteer opportunities from your phone.
- Personalized results: Choose causes you care about and filter events by your availability.
- Social integrations: See who else is signed up to volunteer, and easily invite friends to join by text.
“We can do almost anything from our phones, except easily find ways to help in our own city. We thought that was ridiculous, so we made POINT.” - POINT’s Founder and CEO, Madison Mikhail Bush.
Charities and nonprofits can access an integrated web-based dashboard to add events and volunteer opportunities, as well as access volunteer management tools. Currently, nonprofits can sign up for the Dashboard Lite for free at pointapp.org/charity.
POINT is a 501(c)3 nonprofit headquartered in Columbus, Ohio. After successfully completing an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign in 2016, POINT created the easiest way to volunteer, ever. The company’s free app for individual users and corresponding Dashboard for nonprofits and companies are integrated tools purposed to strengthen and streamline effective community volunteerism. Information on all of POINT’s offerings can be found at www.pointapp.org.
