Hands on Bay Area
We connect companies and people with high-quality volunteer projects through our extensive network of local nonprofits and schools in need.
We help companies — including Google, Salesforce, Levi’s and many others — create customized volunteer events to make their employees happier and better serve society.
And we offer volunteer projects each month to anyone who wants to help, covering all the causes people care about.
What if Foundation
The What If Foundation raises awareness and resources to support critically-needed food, education, and community support programs in the Ti Plas Kazo neighborhood of Port-au-Prince, and beyond. We work in close partnership with the Haitian grassroots organization Na Rive, which has deep roots in the community as well as the know-how and local relationships to have a significant impact on the ground. Together, we have joined forces to bring hope and opportunity to children and their families for nearly 20 years.
