GivePulse for Community Partners

Organizations that partner with American University are strongly encouraged to become an “Affiliate” on GivePulse. This way, one can track student participation. In addition, one can easily verify hours for students volunteering at the site. Currently, all students who participate in programs under AU’s Center for Community Engagement and Service, such as CSLP, DC Reads, and Community-Based courses, are registered on GivePulse and track their hours on there.

Contact or with any issues you are having, if you want help setting up an account, or if you are interested in a webinar/retreat on GivePulse and its other uses.
