How do I create and save my searches and alerts?

If you're always searching for the same jobs or volunteer opportunities, it's much easier for you to set up a saved search. This will help you find the results faster, and save you time from having to enter the job or volunteer search criteria each time you visit our website.

If you want these results to be emailed to you once a day, you can set up a job or volunteer alert. For this example, we'll set up a saved search and alert for a job listing.

Please Note: The example below is the same process for setting up a Volunteer search alert except you click "VOLUNTEER" in the orange navigation menu to search for volunteer positions.


Here's how:

1. Sign into your CharityVillage account.


2. After you sign in, click FIND A JOB at the top of the home page.

For creating a volunteer search alert, remember to click VOLUNTEER in the orange navigation menu. This will bring you to the page where you search for volunteer postings.

You can search by key word, postal code and/or or region. You can also choose from the additional categories to further define your results or scroll down and click the green SEARCH button.



3. Like the results? Save the search by clicking the Save Search button at the bottom of the page, below the listings. If the search results are too broad (wow - 500!) or narrow (sorry, no listings match), just enter new search criteria and click Search again to generate a new search result.


4. A pop-up window will appear. Review the search criteria and if everything looks correct, enter a name for your saved search in the text field.

If you would like to have new search results emailed to you daily, please check the box beside "Email Results Daily". If you would rather not receive the alerts by email, simply leave the box beside Email Results Daily unchecked.


When you're good to go, click Save .

The search alert will be saved to your Account. To find your saved search, please click MY ACCOUNT at the top of the CharityVillage website and then "Saved Searches and Alerts" under the JOB SEARCH INFORMATION category. You can then click on the title of your search alert to review the latest results.

That's all there is to it! Still have questions? Call our HelpDesk at 1-800-610-8134 or email
