Our Approach

Points of Light was founded on the belief that individual volunteers, nonprofits and businesses can make a lasting difference in their communities and in the world. We design products and services that make it easier for volunteers to find opportunities to serve, for businesses to share best practices and develop custom solutions, for nonprofits to collaborate and share resources, and to ensure dedicated volunteers are recognized for their commitment to doing good. Together, these offerings help to build a global culture of volunteerism, and make it even easier for everyone to get involved.
