Leveraging Philanthropy and Collaboration

The Lodestar Foundation seeks to expand the overall capacity of the social sector by promoting philanthropy, volunteering, public service, nonprofit collaboration and other business practices.

Online Volunteer Opportunities

Arizona State University (ASU) partnered with VolunteerMatch.org, a search engine and nationwide database of volunteer opportunities to create Volunteer Information and Referral Services (VIRS). As a result, prospective volunteers can access Phoenix-area volunteer opportunities through the VIRS site or through VolunteerMatch.org. A Lodestar Foundation grant supported the partnership between the two volunteer websites.
