Museums, Galleries, Smithsonians & Places of Intrigue

Have one single place to organize your docents, volunteers, members and donors

As one of the nation's highly ranked children's museum, we are fueled by volunteers that help us reach our mission of growing minds, connecting families and transforming communities through joyful learning and discovery. GivePulse enables us to better recruit, engage and manage a variety of volunteers regardless of their role at the museum. Whether they are a group volunteering together, our dedicated general volunteers, or occasional volunteers lending a hand, the GivePulse platform offers a solution for each scenario and program's needs. Volunteers have enjoyed the flexibility of creating their own hours with the Open Timeslots option, allowing them to schedule based on availability. They have found the software very user friendly.

The invaluable impacts with reflections from our volunteers provide us with an overview of our volunteer program while also allowing us to dive deeper into each volunteer's unique experiences at the DoSeum. The automated reminders, ability to message large groups easily and post-opportunity data collection tools we cannot live without. The mobile sign-in app has helped us streamline volunteer check in and verification of attendance. I highly recommend GivePulse to any museum or non-profit looking for a volunteer and event management software.
