What is Companis?
Companis fills staffing gaps of nonprofit agencies with volunteer professionals.
How we do it
Companis thoughtfully matches skilled volunteer professionals seeking service opportunities with agencies that need them but would otherwise not be able to afford them.
Why Companis matters
Because people of heart want to serve, nonprofit agencies need help, and our neighbors benefit. Companis does what would otherwise go undone.
How Companis Works
Companis is a Seattle-based nonprofit organization that addresses gaps in quality professional staffing experienced by nonprofit agencies due to budget limitations and the growing requests for service provision among our neighbors in crisis.
Companis matches volunteer professionals with nonprofit agencies in need of staffing assistance. Companis offers an opportunity for service to individuals who seek to work for justice among our neighbors. In addition to a core group of full-time volunteer professionals who commit to working for client agencies for at least one year (and who may receive a stipend), Companis also serves as a matchmaker to connect talented part-time volunteers from the community with nonprofits who need their specialized skills.
The agencies helped by Companis may be young and not yet financially self-supporting, or they may be established agencies trying to expand services or begin pilot projects.
If you would like to serve through Companis, if you know a nonprofit agency that would benefit from staffing assistance, or if you would like to support this mission among our neighbors... please contact Companis.
