Strategy or Framework for volunteering

Pledge 1% Team
Head of Strategy & Partnerships,Pledge 1%

The Pledge 1% movement is growing and we have new members getting started everyday with their pledge programs.  Given that this community helps promote best practice sharing, I'm curious if anyone has examples of your volunteer strategy you can share - how do you structure opportunities and incentives to advance your mission?  



particularly interested in how folks organize to volunteer to help tech-enabled impact startups?     seems like a great opportunity to invest in impact startups from your Pledge1% DAF, then use the skills and network of your bigTech company to help an early stage one with an important mission to get big....

Head of Social Impact and Public Policy,Momentive

We are working on parameters for a general volunteer program that will focus on geography - global virtual events based on time zone, regional events that are in-person where it makes sense and virtual, and then local events in-person and virtual. We want to bring people together as much as possible since everyone is dispersed even more. 

I'm also working on a pro bono volunteer program to match employees with nonprofits, much like Twilio's Impact Corps (thank you!). This will be product specific knowledge and also other general skills and expertise. Happy to share more and would love to hear what others are doing and lessons learned.
