About this app

POINT is one app to volunteer for any cause.
We’re your starting point to do more good.

How does POINT work?

There are 20 cause categories on POINT (think: poverty, education, homelessness, climate, etc.) and you can choose to follow any, or all, of them. Local volunteer opportunities related to the causes you pick will show up on your feed. You can also discover all the local nonprofits working for a specific cause by clicking into the icon.

Your volunteer feed is personalized based on the causes you pick, and you can filter by the times you’re free. Find an event you’re excited about? Simply tap "go” and show up. POINT will tell you all the information you need to know on the app, before you arrive.

See who else is going to volunteer, so you know you won’t show up alone. You can meet new people from your community, or you can share the event with your squad (because hey, sometimes you need to shake things up).

Along with the POINT app, nonprofits and other organizations have access to the POINT dashboard, where they can post events and manage volunteers. More at https://pointapp.org/nonprofits/

This app is so close to being a wonderful useful way to connect volunteers to charities. You guys need to make it possible to filter opportunities by time. Working volunteers need that. That's vital. Second, you can filter by day but the events list only the calendar number, which is less helpful. Honestly if they added a way to sort by time, I would give this app 5 stars, but since that is such an obvious shortcoming I couldn't give it more than 3.

Hey Sarah. Thanks for getting on POINT! You are able to search by date, just click "Select Start Date" in the filter section and we'll add back in the time selection with the next update. With every new app version we are introducing new features and improving existing ones. We are sure that your feedback will only help us improve further.

Installed app, signed up, only to find out no results in my city. While I appreciate how useful this app could be, it would be great to know if it would be useful in your city before signing up.

Hey! POINT is available in all 50 states but not every city yet, our team is working on it! We're sorry for the inconvenience, if you know any nonprofits in you city who'd like to sign up send them to pointapp.org.
