The holidays are all about togetherness. Whether you’re gathering with family or friends, you’re likely to cherish the time together over the next few months. Nonprofits also have a knack for bringing people, groups, and opportunities together—and not just around the holidays.
Here are some of the nonprofits that use FormAssembly in their work and how they make pivotal connections in the holiday season and year-round.
Bringing Together… People and Animals: Oregon Humane Society
If you’re an animal lover, you know how critical humane societies and animal shelters are to providing care for animals that don’t have a dedicated family. The Oregon Humane Society, the largest humane society in the Northwest, helps more than 11,000 pets every year, many of them requiring medical care. Despite this, they impose no limits on the length of time an animal stays at their shelter. This December, like every year, they’re trying to get all the available shelter pets adopted before the end of the month.

Bringing Together… Women and Underserved Communities and STEM Careers: STEM Advantage
Jobs in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) fields are plentiful (and growing), but the amount of qualified individuals to take those jobs is lacking in proportion. STEM Advantage is working to close that gap and bring together women and people in underserved communities with STEM jobs. STEM Advantage helps provide individuals in California with the necessary experience and other assistance to get a STEM job when they graduate.

Bringing Together… Kids and Mentors: Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metro Atlanta
If you ask people how they got where they are today, many of them would probably mention the help and guidance of a trusted mentor. Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Metro Atlanta aims to facilitate that by pairing at-risk children with people who volunteer to be mentors. Their organization helps more than 2,000 young people at any given time.
