Virtual Volunteering with the Sage Foundation

The Sage Foundation supports tens of thousands of people in local communities through more than 1,000 charities around the world.

Volunteering during COVID-19

In these difficult times, the Sage Foundation has had to temporarily move away from face-to-face activity to a new way of working, with lots of remote and online volunteering opportunities.

These include opportunities to directly support front line efforts to fight COVID-19 as well as other opportunities that are fun, impactful and engaging. 

Because remote and online volunteering is done at home or on your computer, volunteers have the flexibility to do these activities on any date and for any length of time to fit into their busy schedules. 

Take a look at the Event Listing page here for full details of the opportunities currently available.
