How to Update Your Listings at Serve.gov and All For Good

We’ve had a few questions recently about updating volunteer listings that appear in the new All For Good Web site. Some organizations are reporting that their listings at allforgood.org have errors or else are old and outdated — which is particularly important to fix because the President’s United We Serve initiative is sure to bring more visitors than ever to Serve.gov and Serve.gov gets its information exclusively from All For Good.

The bad news is, you can’t update your listings directly at Allforgood. According to their automated email response system:

Because All for Good crawls other sites to aggregate listings, we cannot modify listings directly. If you would like to change how your listings appear on All for Good, you will need to do so at the source of the listing. You can see the web site that is providing a listing in gray on the last line of the listing, before “Like” and “Share”.
