IVolunteer International, a 501(c)3 tax-exempt nonprofit organization (EIN: 82-0931979), was established in the year 2017 with the vision of creating a volunteer in every human being around the world. The organization creatively connects volunteers to volunteer projects in their local communities, around the world. The organization is tackling the challenges in the volunteerism industry that include (1) time commitment, (2) financial obligations, (3) cost in recruiting volunteers, and (4) the lack of availability of volunteer projects.
The organization first utilized its website to invite organizations and volunteers to post projects that are taking place in their communities, and then to connect volunteers to those projects. The organization is inviting corporations, foundations, and individual investors to support its next big leap: launching a mobile app that will geo-connect volunteers to volunteer projects around their live location. The app, which will be launched in late 2019, will also include three major updates. With each update, the organization will enhance the efficiency of the app and also introduce new features. The app will serve as a onestop shop for all volunteer needs and projects to the global community. In the year 2020, the organization budget seeks to include payroll and investments to not only make the organization sustainable but to increase its service scope to reach more geographic locations around the world.IVolunteer International is a Gold Seal nonprofit organization on Guidestar. In 2019, IVolunteer International was awarded finalist for the “Peace Through Trade Competition” by World Trade Center Savannah.
