  14. 14. Where does micro fit in? Traditional Volunteering: Nonprofits create an account, and post ads for individual on-site and virtual volunteer opportunities. Those opportunities are searchable to volunteers, and matched 1:1 with the interested skilled or non- skilled volunteers. Pro bono contractors: Nonprofits apply for and receive grants entitling them to the labor of skilled volunteers to work on or orchestrate a large-scale campaign or ongoing project. The volunteer and nonprofit are matched through single assignment. Microvolunteering: Nonprofits create an account, and post small projects at will. Those projects are then routed to the volunteers with the relevant professional skill set or expertise, and an interest in the cause. Tasks may be completed by multiple volunteers, collaboratively.
