As part of my duties as Community Manager at the Nonprofit Commons, I have the fun responsibility of bringing in new nonprofits into our virtual world space. While we are always welcome to have visitors -- which we have hundreds of each week -- we really want groups to explore the full spectrum of what virtual worlds can do for them.
One of the easiest ways to do that is to set up a virtual office space in-world. The Nonprofit Commons is fortunate enough to have four sims in our archipelago, within which we offer free office space for qualifying nonprofit / social benefit organizations. Check out our directory of the 145 groups that call the Nonprofit Commons their virtual home.
If you are affiliated with an organization interested in receiving free virtual space to develop your digital presence, head to our website to learn about the whole process. It's easy to get started, and we have several mentors and volunteers who can get you off on the right foot.
While we welcome groups from a variety of sectors and causes, we have immediate openings in our Health and Eco Commons sims. So if you are a group that is concerned with health, wellness, disability, the environment, sustainable development and other related areas, you are especially invited to apply. Others of course can register for a space, which we will provide on a first-come-first-serve basis.
If you have questions, please see our website, email nonprofitcommons@ techsoup.org or IM Rik Riel for details. We look forward to hearing from you!
