VIA connects people. Using VIA, volunteers complete community service projects while generating revenue for the charities or other community-based organizations they value. Communities are healthier when these service-based organizations gain the support they need to thrive.

Through VIA, donors who need a service completed now have another option--an option that helps build both the organizations they support and the community at large. Once registered, these donors have access to screened volunteers who have volunteered to complete the desired service. Donors hire volunteers, and payment for services goes to the charity or other community-based organization chosen from the VIA network. All participants in the process work together to enhance the community.

These VIA-facilitated transactions occur in a closed, safe, and secure collective of people, all of whom support the organization that will ultimately benefit. Everyone wins: donors, volunteers, and community-oriented groups like nonprofits, schools, and churches.

Donors get requested service or tasks completed by trusted, vetted members of the community. Each volunteer monetizes his/her skills and time completing the task designated by the donor and serving his/her community. Both donors and volunteers get the satisfaction of generating revenue to help fulfill the mission of organizations they believe in and want to help sustain. Those organizations, in turn, continue their mission work in service of the community at large. They are less reliant on more traditional, more labor-intensive forms of revenue generation. They free up staff time to focus more intently on mission fulfillment.

Donors need assistance with a variety of tasks and are willing to pay market value for quality service.

The process is simple and straightforward:

1. The donor posts a service or task that he/she would like to have completed by a volunteer.

2. The donor hires a volunteer who has offered to perform the desired service or task--to serve both the designated VIA organization benefitting from the transaction and the community at large.

3. After completion of the task, the donor pays the fair market value of the service rendered or task performed by the volunteer to the designated VIA organization.
