Causecast’s Community Impact Platform is corporate philanthropy software developed for businesses interested in engaging employees through workplace giving and volunteering programs. Its tools enable businesses to manage and track employee-led fundraising and volunteer activities.
The Community Impact Platform lets employees interested in participating search and sign up for volunteer activities, make donations and create their own peer-to-peer crowdfunding campaigns. The system also automates administrative tasks, including donation matching, and delivers detailed reports on contributions, time volunteered and other campaign and event metrics.
Community Impact Platform is Web-based, allowing employees to access the system from any Web browser. Furthermore, the system is mobile-enabled, so activities can be logged in real-time by employees via their phones.
This software is scalable and can be customized to meet the corporate giving and volunteering needs of any size corporation.

I am volunteer coordinator for a medium-sized nonprofit. We post volunteer openings on CauseCast so that some of our volunteers can take advantage of their company's matching gifts/paid volunteer hours. However, from the nonprofit side, the system is a huge pain. The fields you must fill out don't fit our needs (for example, there is no way to show a weekly recurring volunteer need other than by typing it in to the description) and the fields have no explanation (why is there a list of 300 city names I must choose from, and my city isn't listed??). Plus, I recently tried to remove listings that are no longer needs, and CauseCast will not let me unpublish or delete them - it just shows an error message with no further explanation. There is absolutely no customer support for me as a nonprofit - not even an email address for support. There have to be volunteer platforms better than this!
No customer support for nonprofits. Unwieldy platform that is not intuitive.
