Skills-based volunteering (SBV) is when volunteers contribute their professional skills, often providing expertise to directly supporting a nonprofit’s internal operations, strengthening the infrastructure and capacity of the organization. SBV is a powerful driver of social change, and is a unique approach to community engagement that matches employees’ workplace skills, expertise and knowledge with nonprofit needs to increase their impact in the community. By leveraging all types of skills, from IT support and strategic planning to marketing and HR consulting, SBV helps nonprofits expand their reach and become more sustainable, while allowing employees an opportunity to build their leadership skills, and give back to a cause they believe in.
