This article is for agency and program managers on Get Connected, Community Connect, Corporate Connect, Campus Connect, and ReDI System platforms. Because some sites do not use causes, this article will not apply to all agency and program managers.
When registering your agency on a Connect site, you'll want to associate your agency with one or more causes in your agency profile. Your Connect site uses these causes to match your agency up with like-minded volunteers. Icons for your agency's causes appear on your agency profile page, as shown in the example below.
A standard Connect site features the 16 causes listed below, each associated with the icon shown. If your site manager has added custom causes and/or removed some of the default ones, the causes and icons available to you may not match those shown here.
