Tips & Information for Volunteering

Important Notice: The Volunteers' Corner Q & A pages, the volunteering section tips page, the info. page, and the add pages, etc. are all incorporated as part of the terms of use of this site. Please read carefully. Reminder: By using this site you indicate agreement to all our terms.

Click Here for Important Information | Click Here for Q & A


While this site offers you the opportunity to become involved, it is prudent to take precautions to protect yourself (whether you are requesting volunteers or seeking to volunteer). 

Consider the following:

  • We strongly urge you to protect all personal information! We warn against providing any personal information (both on this site and in e-mail & other correspondence). NEVER give out - or ask for - credit card numbers or personal information such as social security numbers, driver's license numbers, identification numbers, mother's maiden name, children's names, pet's name, medical information, etc. You should also carefully avoid disclosing any identifying information or personal information that should be kept private (i.e. personal details, information about one's sins, personal matters, specific locations, etc.). Note that even your name is personal information! By disclosing any personal information, you may put yourself and your loved ones at risk.

  • Set terms / limits in advance [i.e. time limits, geographical limits, what to do in case of injury/damage/problem, etc., who pays what expenses (where applicable), etc.]. Be sure to settle jurisdictional matters in advance.

  • Consider talking with the other party on the phone prior to requesting/offering to perform any volunteer work. Remember, however, that if you provide your phone number, you may receive unwanted or harassing calls.

  • Consider utilizing a post office box to help protect your personal information.

  • Become familiar with and do not break any applicable laws.

  • Think it through - Should you limit your volunteer related activities to certain locations (e.g. known, safe public grounds)? How can you be sure any location is "safe"? What actions can you take to reduce your risk? What do you expect from the other party? How can you be certain the other party is who they say they are? What will you do if the other party doesn't perform their responsibilities properly? What if problems occur? Can you lawfully restrict who volunteers for you/who you volunteer for? Do you have adequate insurance? How can you protect yourself / your loved ones / your possessions / your personal information, etc.?...

  • Are materials/tools required? If so, who provides them? What happens if they are inadequate, lost, misused, damaged, never delivered, etc? How will they be returned? What if they are never returned?...

  • Will you be responsible for all taxes, fees, etc. (as applicable)?

  • What if someone is injured while performing a volunteer activity or injures someone else?... Who would be held responsible?... 

  • Who will provide for nourishment?... Where will you park?... Are restrooms readily available?...

  • Does the other party have any special needs or will they require any special accommodations? Are these acceptable to both parties? What steps might you be required to take by law to accommodate certain persons? Can you afford such accommodations?

  • What if you discovered that an individual misrepresented/lied about their skills or previous experience or anything else concerning their volunteer request/offer?

  • What if someone offers to volunteer for you because they want to learn more about your operations (i.e. a competitor)?

  • If you volunteer, will you be held responsible should something break / become damaged, etc.? What if the other party isn't happy with your volunteer work? Will you redo it? Will you be required to pay someone else to redo it?...

  • Should you ask for the other party's contact information? Work phone number? Fax? E-mail address? Copy of individual's weekly parish envelope?... Should you verify any information? If you are asked for such information, should you provide it?... Does your parish envelope contain private information?... Would you require that items you provide be sent back to you?...

  • Consider asking the other party for their parish / diocese information. You may want to request a parish bulletin.

  • Should you request a copy of the other party's business card? If asked, are you willing to provide this information?

  • Note that provided contact information, descriptive information, Catholic affiliation, and other information may be subjective / inaccurate or may change and that volunteering offers / opportunities / events / activities / organizations / submitters / requestors / volunteers, etc. may not be as described. Information appearing on the site is not comprehensive, may omit important details, and may be the opinion of the submitter.

  • Before participating, you should carefully consider how you might choose volunteers/who to volunteer for... Is it lawful to set an age limit or require certain physical traits (e.g. strength) or to restrict to those of a certain religion? If you receive many requests/offers, how can you lawfully choose? How can you be certain that the submitter / requestor / offerer / volunteer, etc. is who they say they are? How can you know whether or not they are trustworthy and willing/able to do what they say?... 

  • Be cautious about spending your own money in relation to any volunteering activity. Even if you have been promised reimbursement, you may never receive it. Also, never spend the money of others improperly or attempt to involve them in any debts.

  • If you receive an expense reimbursement (or a refund of excess reimbursement), what happens if a check bounces? Who will pay the bank fees? How might a bad check be replaced?...

  • You should work out a detailed agreement between yourself and the other party(ies) in advance (preferably in writing). Remember that we are not a party to your volunteer related activities, and we do not get involved in your dealings with others or mediate disputes.

  • This section is not intended for employment/sales of services. Commercial abuses of the volunteering section may cause all applicable posts to be removed and the party in question may be banned from future posting on this site. Note: If you are interested in employment/sales of services, try the commercial sections of this site. 

  • Before utilizing the services of volunteers, you should be sure that all volunteers are capable of performing all necessary functions, that they understand all instructions, and that they have all necessary tools/materials, etc.

  • Note that we do not guarantee the quality of work of any volunteer. Before utilizing the services of any volunteer, you should consider questions such as these... How often will you check the volunteer's work? How directly will you supervise the volunteer? Does the volunteer understand what is expected of him/her? Has the volunteer demonstrated his/her ability to perform such tasks? Should you start the volunteer with just a few responsibilities at first? What if the volunteer is unable to begin/complete the work? What if the volunteer does a poor quality job? What if the volunteer damages/destroys/breaks something?...

  • Volunteers should be sure to get clear instructions before performing any activities and should be sure to have available necessary / adequate tools / materials required for volunteering activities.

  • Volunteers/requestors/submitters, etc. should verify that all volunteer related activities can be performed legally before participating in them. Do not participate in any activity/event, etc. which is unlawful - even if you are asked to do so.

  • Remember that volunteer requests/offers may contain varying degrees of truthfulness. We encourage you to independently research opportunities / requests / offers / groups / organizations / individuals / submitters / requestors / volunteers / offerers / events / activities, etc. independently before participation.

  • Users are warned that some may attempt to abuse this section in various ways. We are not responsible for any abuses, even if we become aware of them and take no action (or if we take ineffective, insufficient, or otherwise unsuitable action) to stop them or to reduce their occurrence or to mitigate their damage.

  • Although our goal is for this site to be "safe", users are cautioned that we cannot guarantee that volunteer opportunities, volunteering offers, submitters / requestors / offerers / volunteers, individuals, groups, organizations, activities, events, etc. are beneficial or "safe". In fact, we caution that volunteer opportunities, volunteering offers, submitters / requestors / offerers / volunteers, individuals, groups, organizations, activities, events, etc. may be dangerous / harmful in various ways. You should be especially cautious about working for/utilizing the services of unknown individuals (and working for unknown groups, organizations, etc.) and you should carefully consider how you can protect yourself, your loved ones, your possessions, etc. Remember that participation in any volunteer related activities (including volunteer requests, volunteering offers, volunteering activities, events, contacts / correspondence, selection / use of volunteers, providing / performance of volunteer services, etc.) is at your own risk. We are not a party to your volunteer related activities and we do not mediate disputes. 

  • Note that we do not endorse / recommend any individual(s) / organization(s) / group(s), etc. who may contact you regarding your post(s).

  • Users are warned to use extreme caution since unscrupulous people may use this section for evil purposes. Remember that we are not a party to others' activities (including volunteer requests, volunteering offers, volunteering activities, events, contacts / correspondence, etc.) even if information about such activities is contained on our site (or other materials of ours), and we do not mediate disputes. By using this site, you agree to assume all risks and agree to hold us harmless for all consequences which may occur, without limit. 

Additional Considerations:

  • Volunteer offers/requests are subject to change at any time without notice. Remember that posts may appear on this site for a long time, even if they are no longer applicable. Click here for general timetable information. Note that we are unable to honor requests to remove posts which are no longer applicable.

  • Volunteering is on a voluntary basis which (unless otherwise agreed) may be terminated by any party at any time (as permitted by law).

  • Each party should be responsible for their own transportation in connection with volunteering activities. Participants should verify the locations of events/activities, etc. in advance and be certain of their safety.

  • You should use extra caution with cash & other valuables.

  • All information is provided by users, is not comprehensive, has not been verified, may be subjective/inaccurate, is not endorsed / recommended by us, and may change at any time without notice. Note that we cannot guarantee accuracy/truthfulness of any information.

  • We strongly recommend that you refrain from requesting assistance with (or assisting in) activities involving delicate / fragile / sensitive / expensive / sentimental / rare / antique / one-of-a-kind / hard to find / difficult or costly to replace, etc. items or near cash/cash equivalents, easily stolen items, sensitive information, etc. You should also use extreme caution around vulnerable / frail / infirm, etc. persons. 

  • Note that if you request or offer volunteer services, an e-mail address will be required in order to contact you regarding availability, requirements, terms, etc. Please note that, for your protection, we recommend a cautious approach to providing e-mail information. We suggest that you use a special e-mail account exclusively for use on this site (e.g. one that you could easily abandon/change should a problem arise). For additional considerations regarding the risks of providing e-mail addresses, click here. If you do not wish to include your e-mail address, you will be unable to participate in this section. Please note that we may verify e-mail addresses provided and require a certain timely response. (Note that our verification will not ask for personal information.) 

  • Should you require/provide an expense reimbursement? If so, how much will appropriate expenses total?... Should a volunteer be reimbursed in advance? If so, how do you know they will use the funds properly? If not, how can the volunteer be certain they will be reimbursed?... Should you remit funds by check or private money order? (Note that a private money order may better protect privacy.) Do not mail cash! What if the reimbursement is lost? Who would be responsible for stop payment fees?... What happens if a check bounces? Who will be responsible for bank fees? How might a bad check be replaced?... What happens if you never receive an expense reimbursement?... What happens if you never receive a refund of any excess reimbursement?... What if advance expense reimbursement funds are spent improperly? What if the other party spends more than necessary?... Should you obtain proof of mailing for expense reimbursements?... Should you require a signature upon delivery?... Who pays for this?... Must a SASE be provided for return of any excess funds?... Note: The total amount of any expense reimbursements should be modest and should equal (and not exceed) the actual amount of appropriate costs to be reimbursed. Expense reimbursements should be in the form of a check or (preferably) private money order denominated in U.S. currency. All expense reimbursement arrangements should be specific, detailed, and agreed to in advance by all applicable parties (preferably in writing and containing appropriate original signatures). 

  • Consider paying any expense reimbursements (or returns of excess funds) by private money order to protect your personal information.

  • We recommend limiting your volunteer offers/requests to one at a time.

  • We do not guarantee that any posts will appear on the site or that anyone will receive/provide volunteer assistance.

  • We recommend that you include a "final date" in the applicable field to notify users not to contact you after that date. Unfortunately, however, there is no guarantee that you will not be contacted after that time. Note that posts may appear on the site for a long time and that we cannot honor requests to remove posts which are no longer applicable.

  • Long processing delays in this section are not unexpected. Therefore, please submit your post early. Note: Do not contact us regard the status of any submission.

  • The value of services received may be taxable. Volunteer work provided may not qualify for a tax deduction (although some expenses may), even if performed for charitable reasons. Note that you are responsible for any taxes due in connection with your volunteer related activities (including volunteer requests, volunteering offers, services performed/received, events, expense reimbursements, etc.). For assistance with tax matters, consult a qualified tax professional.

  • Volunteers / requestors / submitters / volunteering situations / activities / events, etc. may be harmful in various ways. You agree to assume all risks of volunteer related activities (including contacts/correspondence, etc.), without limit.

  • If a volunteer request [including 'volunteer opportunity/request' post(s) and responses to volunteering offer(s)] in any way involves/affects someone other than the person submitting the request for assistance (e.g. a landlord, a roommate, an employer, a sibling, or any other individual, organization, etc.), it is considered a third party request and is subject to certain requirements (click here for more information). Do not proceed unless you properly meet all requirements.

You should not participate in or agree to participate in any hazardous/dangerous, etc. activity/event, etc., or any activity/event, etc. that you are uncomfortable about, or in any activities which are beyond your ability (considering your skills/time available/available materials/constraints, etc.). You should also be certain that the location of all events/activities, etc. is safe.

  • Be specific about what you are offering/requesting in your posts, but do not include any company names, organization names, event names, individual's names, web addresses, etc. If you include such detail in your post, the post - and all your future posts - may be subject to auto rejection. As applicable, you may discuss such information privately with interested individuals. 

  • Do not attempt to advertise here or otherwise promote your products/services/website/organization, etc. Do not name any business, organization, individual, product, service, website, event, author, book, speaker, Catholic material, Catholic church, etc. in your posts or provide contact information. If you include such detail in your post, the post - and all your future posts to this site (not just this section) - may be subject to auto rejection. Note: If you wish to advertise your products / services / website / organization, etc., consider an inexpensive ad in a commercial section of this site.

  • If you participate in this section, you may receive unwanted communications and/or you may receive or be subject to other unwanted items (including personal visits, anti-Catholic literature, harassment, encounters with those who have an intent to harm or deceive, etc.) and/or others may use your information in ways unsuitable/harmful to you. Proceed at your own risk.

  • Whether you are requesting or offering volunteer services, you may encounter various problems. For example: Volunteers may not be as expected (i.e. too weak, old, infirm, etc. to perform activities properly); Volunteers / requestors / submitters, etc. may not do what they say or otherwise may fail to live up to their commitments; Volunteers / requestors / submitters, etc. may be exposed to insult, ridicule, disparaging comments, etc. or may be questioned about beliefs, etc.; Opportunities / events / activities, etc. may turn out to be anti-Catholic or against Church teachings; Persons / organizations / groups / events / activities / submitters / requestors / volunteers, etc. may not be as indicated or promised; Volunteers / requestors / submitters, etc. may break the law, have offensive behavior or habits, lie, hurt someone or get hurt, argue / fight among themselves or with others, etc.; Volunteers / requestors / submitters, etc. may show up with children or other unexpected persons or might not be who they say they are; Activities/events, etc. may be changed/cancelled even after a volunteer has traveled by plane, bus, car, etc. to help out; Individuals may receive differing treatment by volunteers / requestors / submitters, etc.; Volunteers / requestors / submitters, etc. may disclose your personal information; Volunteer activities may turn out to be profit-minded, or otherwise inappropriate / unsafe; Volunteers / requestors / submitters, etc. may be led away from their homes to provide an opportunity for those with criminal intent (e.g. thieves); Volunteers / requestors / submitters, etc. may smoke in prohibited locations; Volunteers / requestors / submitters / events / activities / organizations, etc. may be dangerous or may associate with others who are dangerous; Etc... Reminder: Participation in any volunteer related activities (including volunteering offers, volunteer requests, volunteering activities, events, contacts / correspondence, selection / use of volunteers, providing / performance of volunteer services, etc.) is at your own risk. Should you experience problems, you may attempt to work them out with the other party. As applicable, you may notify law enforcement or seek other legal remedies.

Note that you may be held legally liable for the safety of (and for all activities of) volunteers and for their possessions - as well as for all their actions. Do NOT request/utilize volunteer assistance if you cannot afford to be liable/responsible for volunteers, for their possessions, and for the consequences of their actions. Note that this liability may extend from portal to portal.
