Points of Light Institute announces it has plans to acquire All for Good—the leader in service discovery across the social graph. Founded in 2009, All for Good is an open source database of volunteer opportunities, aggregating content from a wide range of partners and distributing these listings on allforgood.org as well as across the Internet via its free API. By integrating the open source volunteer platform into its portfolio of social enterprises, Points of Light Institute is well-positioned to scale All for Good’s mission, extend its distribution and drive operational efficiencies across the organization. In less than two years, All for Good has emerged as one of the largest databases of service opportunities on the Internet, organizing such listings from a diverse and growing array of nonprofit organizations, businesses and government agencies. It is a fitting complement to Points of Light, a national institution that manages the largest national volunteer footprint in the nation. Incubated as a 20 percent project within Google in 2009, All for Good has been a joint project of many nonprofit groups and corporate partners. Today its free service enables the search functionality on Serve.gov, the official Website of the Corporation for National and Community Service, as well as on many blogs and Websites, Facebook pages and other online applications. “We are thrilled that All for Good has been acquired and found a home with Points of Light Institute, one of the leading non-profit organizations in the country,” says founder and president, Jonathan Greenblatt. “We are excited about the opportunities to grow in partnership with Points of Light." “We commend Jonathan and the board of All for Good for their creative and important contribution to the marketplace of volunteer engagement,” said Michelle Nunn, CEO of Points of Light Institute. “We’re excited to add All for Good to our portfolio of initiatives and build upon their momentum by leveraging their open platform and allowing everyone in the nation to connect to an opportunity that fits their passion and capacity.” “All for Good’s success and initial impact has been the result of a wide range of partners, particularly a handful of visionary supporters such as AARP, Gap, Google, P&G and Target. Points of Light hopes to expand this list of partnerships and engage with new leaders who see the promise of using technology to strengthen the country and its communities through service,” Nunn adds.
