Frequently Asked Questions

  • Does DGT™ match volunteers with nonprofits?

  • Is there a calendar full of monthly opportunities?

  • What makes DGT different than other volunteering organizations?

 

This section addresses the fact that DGT is different than VolunteerMatch and doesn't work as a matching resource

Also this area mentions that the "monthly lists of opportunities" are not in online calendar format as seen in other nonprofits. We can include an example listing here too

Finally, we can address the fact that we are family focused and not out to serve just anyone who wants to volunteer. 



Detail 2a

How is DGT™ different than the RAK (Random Acts of Kindness) organization?

sdfsdfsfsdf

Information here explains that we are all about intentional acts of kindness and creating a family kindness practice. Need to correctly clarify our connection to RAK (if any) and make sure it's clear that we are not against random kindness, merely an alternative.


Question here regarding donations and financials? Or is there another FAQ to add?
