HOW IT WORKS
The Key Skills Hub serves as a centralized, online marketplace to match skilled volunteers with nonprofits seeking expertise to propel their missions. Nonprofits create a profile giving high-level information on their mission and list their needs in the form of projects or calls. Volunteers create a profile that articulates their skills and areas of interest.
Each partner – the nonprofit and the professional – decides if the connection is the right fit. Think of the matching like an interview process, where both parties are looking for the ideal pairing. Once the link is made, these powerful partnerships build stronger nonprofits.

Philadelphia Foundation has partnered with RSVP to offer traditional, non-skills-based volunteering. RSVP is a nonprofit organization that provides meaningful volunteer opportunities to help meet critical human needs in Greater Philadelphia. Volunteers help children and adults learn to read, tutor students and veterans in math, assist low-income adults and seniors with food security, provide Medicare counseling services and provide support to many community-based programs.
