For Nonprofits and Government

The Montgomery County Volunteer Center connects volunteers and other resources with local nonprofit and government organizations to help you serve critical community needs.  Register your organization to recruit volunteers, access donations, and share resources on volunteer management.

Login to your account

Looks different doesn't it! We changed to a new software platform and transferred active agencies.

The primary contact for each agency should have received an email on 8/25 with login info for the new account.

Get help and see more here on how to manage your account on the new system.

Our old system login will remain available through September if you want to login to export referrals or see your old account.

Help for Current Agencies with Our Website Changes

Our old software is no longer being supported and so we upgraded to Get Connected by Galaxy Digital which offers many great features and is mobile-friendly as well.

What was Transferred?

  • Organizations and opportunities that were active as of August 17, 2017 were transferred over.
  • The primary contact person for each agency was transferred. 

How to Login - Get a New Password

For the new site, rather than one shared password for your organization, each individual will need a user account in order to log in to manage the information. You can still have multiple users with manager access to your organization’s account, but the primary manager will need to add additional managers once they have created a user account.

If you can't find the email with that temporary password:

  • you can get a new password by going to the login page and entering the email address for your primary contact and clicking on "forgot your password".
  • Or email or call us, 240-777-2600, so we can help. 

How to Manage Your Account Once You Login

After you log in, click on the link to “MY ORGANIZATION” at the top of the page to view and edit your organization’s info. You may see a welcome message - close that so you can see your organization's info. Be sure to upload your logo, review your listing for accuracy, and add any required information. When you’re done, make sure to click on the “UPDATE ORGANIZATION INFO” button to save your changes.

Once you’ve reviewed and updated your organization information, click on the “OPPORTUNITIES” tab under your organization name to review and edit those opportunities that were active when we transferred your information.

To change your password you'll be editing your individual profile. Click on the blue circle with your initials on the top right and select "Edit Profile" and see the "Change Password" options on that page.

What Didn’t Transfer

Inactive opportunities and any volunteer referrals you may have on our old database were not transferred. If you want to access those you can  log in to the old database through the end of  September. To keep a record of all the volunteers who expressed interest click on the "Referrals" tab, select a date range to go back as far as you want, refresh the list, and then export it. We are also exporting all information as archived so you can email us if you’d like us to send you opportunities that did not transfer over or lists of volunteers. We also did not transfer most edits made to the old site after August 17, 2017. If you have something new that didn't get transfered, add it to the new site again, or contact us for help. 

About Student Service Learning Preapproval

If your organization and opportunities were already preapproved for SSL by Montgomery County Public Schools on our old database, that status has transferred over. In addition, if you were already SSL preapproved, you will soon receive an email from new staff with the MCPS SSL program requesting updated information specific to SSL activities. Be sure to respond to that email to ensure continuation of your organization’s SSL status.

You will notice, once you go through some of the trainings, that this new tool offers an option for volunteers to keep track of their hours. This does NOT have any direct connection to the MCPS SSL requirement that students complete the paper forms to submit to their school for SSL hours. It is simply a tool that some volunteers and agencies might choose to use for their own record-keeping.

Training is available

To learn about all the system features and how to manage your account, visit the Galaxy Digital Help Center to sign up for one of the developer’s weekly webinars or to find a link for a prerecorded agency training session that you can watch any time. You can also learn more about the new system (and our other programs and services) at the Volunteer Center’s monthly agency orientations.
