Companis is organized to address 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 professional volunteer and community workers with nonprofit agencies in need of staffing assistance. 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. For agencies, we are affordable capacity builders.
Companis does not discriminate against anyone on the basis of age, race, nationality, gender, marital status, sexual orientation, gender orientation, religious belief or physical abiliity.
