Generally, the voluntary sector includes self-governing organizations that do not generate profits for shareholders, are non-governmental, and are formed with an organizational structure. Some of these organizations rely on volunteer action on an ongoing basis, while other organizations are event driven and rely on volunteers for specific reasons such as fundraising, festivals, or large sporting events.

Some organizations overlap classifications. For example, museums educate, promote culture, and preserve our heritage.

For clarity, this website has identified 12 classification categories that rely on volunteers.
