Frequently Asked Questions
Volunteer Hamilton has invested considerable time into making its website accessible, understandable and easy-to-use. The website was built using WordPress, which is one of the most popular and versatile tools available for website design and development.
However, we recognize that what works for one site visitor might not work for the next. Therefore, we have pulled together some of the most frequently asked questions. As our site continues to grow, we will revisit these questions and make updates when necessary.
Our frequently asked questions cover a variety of topics, including:
Do you screen volunteers?
How do I login?
Can I ask to have additional site features?
How can I report a bug with the website?
This is a group effort, and we appreciate all your help and understanding!
I want to volunteer. What should I do?
When you find an opportunity you are interested in, use the contact form on the individual posting’s page to reach the organization which posted the position directly. Contact information is listed at right side of each posting. It may look different depending on your platform (desktop computer vs. mobile).

Is it free to search for volunteer opportunities?

- Be notified about various new opportunity postings based on your interests.
Can I edit my volunteer/organization profile?
How do I add my nonprofit organization?
The tool will collect a variety of information about your organization, including contact information, location, organization type, etc.
