Magnify is the easiest way to find volunteering opportunities in your local communities!
Magnify makes completing projects fun, easy, and rewarding. Here's how it works:
1. Look through projects in your area, or national projects that can be completed anywhere.
2. Join projects that look interesting.
3. Connect with volunteers and organizers before, after, and during the project.
4. Mark when you've completed a project.
5. Watch your activism score rise!
Your activism score lets you see the total amount you've made a difference. As your score rises, you'll rise in level and unlock new ranks. The Leaderboard lets you see the top members of the Magnify community—soon enough you might be one of them!
Organizations are the backbone of the Magnify community. Join one of the organizations, or encourage your own organization to start working with us.

One thing you often hear is that people wait to be asked to help; we’re all busy, we don’t know what might need assistance or where our efforts might be of best use, we don’t want to join something and then regret it... so we don’t take action until someone asks us to.
The beauty of Magnify is that anyone (you! your kids! your grandparents!) can ask for help with something, and those of us who might like to be engaged in our community but might want to start small or with individual, discreet projects can answer the call—and all of it in our terms, without blasting anyone or knowing that if we agree we’ll be condemned to a lifetime of solicitations.
You hop on the app and type up what you’re working on, what you need, your plan of action, whatever—and wait for like-minded people to find your project and pitch in.
Or you hop on the app, poke around for something that fits your interests, values, etc., and know exactly what you’re signing on for, whether it’s a couple of hours helping with a one-time volunteer event, helping to research the best next steps for a problem, agreeing to write a letter to the editor or attend a meeting... And although of course you might find an ongoing project or organization that you want to commit to, you can also explore and do as much or as little as suits you.
You know how every now and then Nextdoor serves to actually solve a problem or help neighbors come together? Magnify is like that all the time!

I love MAGNIFY’s optimistic assumption that local people understand local needs and can affect meaningful change in their communities. It provides a vehicle to reach out to others with similar concerns. While the site includes some national projects, I found a local project only four miles from my home concerning the Hahamonga watershed. Given the general hysteria in much public discourse at the moment, I especially appreciate the reasonable tone of the postings. It’s refreshing to see that civil discourse is still possible .
This app gives a voice to the concerns we all have that may seem too small or too challenging to be addressed. Dangerous pot hole on your street? Magnify your voice by adding the issue on this app and unify your neighbors to take action and get it noticed and fixed. I’ve seen larger, more national issues addressed here, as well, and the app provides a cohesive way to take on multiple issues at once without feeling overwhelmed. Whoever came up with this idea - THANK YOU! Simply brilliant.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
