Support Our Work

Be a Point of Light: Help us inspire, equip and mobilize millions of changemakers across the globe each year to help solve the world’s toughest problems.

With support from Points of Light, volunteers around the world are tackling and solving big problems like childhood illiteracy, homelessness, pollution, food insecurity, and neighborhood resiliency. Volunteers like...

...the young person engaged in volunteering through our youth division, generationOn.

…the social entrepreneur in our Civic Accelerator whose startup includes people as part of the solution to critical problems.

And the countless individuals who make a difference using their time, talent, voice, and money everyday. Volunteers fill the gaps in community wellness that companies, government and philanthropy can’t by capital investments alone.

Please consider a gift to Points of Light to help us dramatically increase the number of volunteers in the world and the impact of the work they do.
