Working together with hundreds of nonprofit partners, large and small businesses throughout Los Angeles, and tens of thousands of committed volunteers, HandsOn Demo has made a significant, visible and lasting contribution to Los Angeles. HandsOn Demo has:

  • Contributed over one million volunteer hours of service to Los Angeles
  • Spent over 80,000 hours reading books to children and at-risk youth, 65,000 hours tutoring and 50,000 hours providing activities for the elderly
  • Served over 10,000 meals to the homeless, and
  • Painted hundreds of murals at schools and nonprofit partners.

Our Vision

Our vision is to make Georgia nationally recognized as a center for nonprofit impact and innovation, containing premier organizations and compelling leaders who, by delivering value with excellence, exponentially contribute to our citizen’s quality of life and to the economic wellbeing of the state; and by doing so, they operate in an environment that is fully supportive of their work.

HandsOn Connect has helped us Achieve Great Things.

Supervisor, Portland Food Distribution

To accomplish this, HandsOn Demo will be the place that nonprofits turn to for information and resources to improve performance; the credible voice protecting and advancing sector interests; the source of thought leadership and solutions that facilitates a state-of-the-art nonprofit environment and catalyzes collective impact.

Our new journey is bold.  It is sparked by the potential of the nonprofit sector to deliver even greater impact, and is fueled by our own desire for sustained impact and growth.  Our ambition is simple, we will create the most effective nonprofit sector in the country, and we will create the most effective center for nonprofit performance and innovation in the country.  

Our goals are also straightforward.  We will create high performing organizations that create great value; we will drive nonprofit adaptability and systemic innovation for sustained impact; we will align and leverage the power of our network to catalyze a unified environment of support for the work and worth of nonprofits; and we will inspire our people to invest themselves in building, not just a resource, but an indelible asset for our community and for the sector.  

Ultimately, our journey will be propelled by people with vision and talent, who have a burning desire to excel and who value nonprofits as essential to who we are as a society.
