The 9/11 National Day of Service initiative is organized annually by MyGoodDeed Inc., in close partnership with the Corporation for National and Community Service, HandsOn Network, and the National September 11 Memorial and Museum (“9/11 Memorial”). Together we annually encourage all Americans and others to voluntarily support charitable causes, perform good deeds and engage in other service activities in observance of the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.
The website for the 9/11 National Day of Service allows visitors to connect with local nonprofits for service opportunities in their community. Community nonprofit organizations are encouraged to register and sign up their events for volunteers to get involved. Nonprofits may update their profile directly through Guidestar and can also update and edit volunteer listings through allforgood.org, volunteermatch.org, and servenet.org.
Many other prominent organizations also participate in supporting this growing observance including AARP, BeTheChange, CityYear, CauseCast.org, DoSomething.org, Families of September 11, ServiceNation, U.S. Chamber of Commerce Business Civic Leadership Council, United Way of America, Voices of September 11 and many other groups. We’d like to thank our technology partners, GuideStar, Network for Good, All For Good, and Hands On Network, for assisting us in the development of this important giving tool.
