Whether you are a nonprofit reaching out to a volunteer, or rather a volunteer looking for answers about a specific program, communication is the key to finding the best match for an opportunity - and for realizing it.
With that, many nonprofits and volunteers alike may experience difficulties when it comes to hearing back and moving forward with their opportunity.
As GivingWay was set up to promote, facilitate, and encourage the direct connection between nonprofits and volunteers - our team cannot intervene when either side chooses not to respond.
This means, that if a volunteer or the contact person in a nonprofit does not reply to a message - GivingWay cannot force them to reply or reply on their behalf.
I am a volunteer, and I changed my mind about the opportunity I agreed to. What can I do?
In this case, it is under the volunteer's responsibility to make sure their decision is communicated directly with the nonprofit through their GivingWay profile.
The volunteer can also refer back to your previous messages - there, clicking on the orange REPLY button.
Please keep in mind that explaining the reasons for choosing not to go on volunteering to the organization can help the nonprofit.
I am a volunteer - and the nonprofit I've messaged did not write back to me. What can I do?
First, we are sorry to hear that the nonprofit hasn't responded to your messages.It
It is best to keep in mind that many nonprofits are located in remote areas or are short on staff.
This and other variables may cause a delay in response time, but hopefully, they will get back to you shortly!
