Default Causes and Icons

When registering your agency on a Connect site, you'll want to associate your agency with one or more causes in your agency profile. Your Connect site uses these causes to match your agency up with like-minded volunteers. Icons for your agency's causes are shown on your agency profile page, as shown in the example below.


A standard Connect site features the 16 causes listed below, each associated with the icon shown. If your site manager has added custom causes and/or removed some of the default ones, the causes and icons available to you may not match those shown here.
