AUSTIN, TX- Blue Catalyst Group portfolio company Swoovy responds to the COVID-19 pandemic with virtual volunteering opportunities. Swoovy is a platform for matching people with non-profit volunteering activities. Started as a dating platform, Swoovy expanded to provide couples volunteer experiences. The company is currently fundraising to expand its platform to provide a “friends” functionality, allowing the ability to sign up with your friends in groups to volunteer together.
While “stay at home” mandates prevented most standard volunteer activities, non-profits still need help. Swoovy responded with assistance in designing virtual volunteer activities. These activities include corporate team building with video-broadcast and make at home kits to support area non-profit campaigns. For more information about virtual volunteering or the Swoovy platform, contact CEO Brooke Waupsh at firstname.lastname@example.org.
