Product Feature Spotlight: Events Near Me

Finding volunteer opportunities is one thing. Finding opportunities that are nearby is another thing altogether. At Rosterfy we understand that limiting the boundaries to volunteering is integral for any successful volunteer management program. With that said, meet your new best friend.

Rosterfy’s newest addition, ‘Events Near Me’ allows volunteers to search for volunteer opportunities via an address, location and/or postcode. This search criteria then ensures that only volunteer opportunities within the volunteers geographic location will show up.

By showcasing opportunities that are close in geography to your volunteers, you are likely to find your attendance rates improving with barriers like transport, traffic and cost inhibitors removed from the equation.
