GivingWay functions as an online platform. Prospective volunteers can go to Giving Way’s website and select certain criteria according to their interest or area of expertise to yield the best fit opportunities. When browsing potential volunteer opportunities, GivingWay streamlines the process that nonprofits can clearly communicate their needs. Each post on the online platform consists of the organization’s name, a photo, and their location. There is also practical information such as how long the program lasts, what is provided by the organization, and who to contact for more information.
