Why Partner With Companis

Consider a Companis solution if you represent a nonprofit in need of skilled volunteers or workers receiving a modest stipend. Because we match dedicated, talented people looking to give back to their communities, Companis offers immense benefits to nonprofit agencies providing vital community services. Listen to what these Nonprofit Executive Directors had to say after Companis made several placements at each agency.

“Companis volunteers save us thousands of dollars a year in staff costs, which we can then use for direct service to our struggling neighbors. They perform important jobs that serve people directly. And they bring a level of professionalism, experience and wisdom to  our operations that is invaluable.”

— That’s what then-St. Vincent de Paul Deputy Director Steve Knipp said as he assessed impact of Companis Workers on the SVDP Help Center Desk in 2017. Companis placements included a Help Center staffer fluent in Amharic and English, a huge benefit for an organization serving increasing numbers of African immigrants.

“Companis is the reason we are where we are today. We now have the capacity to fulfill 100% of the mission-appropriate requests we receive. A year ago, that number was one out of three. So having that added capacity, in people who are passionate advocates for clients, is making the vision of our work become a reality. That’s a really powerful thing.”

— Ruth Herold, Executive Director of Elizabeth Gregory Home, where 11 Companis placements serving homeless women have included social worker, volunteer manager, housing and health care manager, cook, and day center coordinator.

“Companis has taken the time to match volunteers with us based on their personal passions and our mission…. They’re sending me great people.”

— Dila Perera, Executive Director of Open Arms Perinatal Services, leads an organization that provides community-based support during pregnancy, birth, and early parenting to nurture strong foundations that last a lifetime. Three Companis Workers have helped with this vital mission.

“Companis is a fabulous partner and the staff is incredibly responsive to our needs. They do a great job of being able to find the match who would be a good fit for your organization.”

— Monisha Harrell, Chair of Equal Rights Washington, where Companis placed a volunteer accountant.

Companis Workers today are at the forefront of service to our neighbors who are homeless, sick and hungry, mentally ill and addicted, and creating community for refugees, immigrants, seniors, youth and our LGBTQ neighbors. Companis strengthens nonprofit capacity in the Puget Sound region by providing free or affordable professional help when most needed.
