As we work to navigate this virtual environment, CVC is responding to the most pressing issue identified by
members: how do we implement virtual volunteering? Nonprofits still need support from volunteers during this time
and corporate partners want to help out. Yet, as we all work to innovate and pivot within our new reality, there are
many ways that “virtual volunteering” can look.

CVC is hosting a virtual brainstorm session for our corporate and nonprofit members to come together online, share
best practices, and bounce ideas off of one another. Through this interactive program, participants will have the
opportunity to connect with their corporate and nonprofit peers to ask questions and learn what works or doesn’t
work in a virtual world.

8:00 - 8:20 am Virtual volunteering update from CVC
8:20 - 9:00 am

Facilitated break-out discussions covering the following virtual volunteer topics:

2) Supporting non-frontline nonprofit missions (ie. everything else)
3) Pro bono/skills-based volunteering
9:00 -9:30 am Reconvene as large group to share key points

The primary content for this discussion comes from you! Please come prepared to be an engaged participant in this
conversation by thinking about the following:

Which type(s) of volunteering are you looking to implement (frontline response only, all nonprofits, pro bono/skillsbased)?

Which type(s) of volunteering would be beneficial to your mission?
