Matchmaking between Talents and NGOs — Introducing Time Auction’s New Program

Why Hong Kong Needs Skill-based Volunteering

Most nonprofits don’t have much room to invest in functions such as marketing, design, finance, and technology. However, the need for these skills are great.

How Finding the Right Talent Has Helped Our Growth

Helping Nonprofits Find the Talent They Need

Our survey shows that 92% of nonprofits need skilled volunteers, yet 83% couldn’t find them.

With the support from Swire Trust, we are launching a new technology platform to facilitate the matching (kind of like online dating for nonprofits!).

Our new skilled-volunteer matching platform connects nonprofits and volunteers
