Where would I look for charitable volunteer SEM opportunities?

I used to work at Google and they had an internal program where SEM Strategists could donate some of their time to working on marketing campaigns for charitable organizations. It was a wonderfully unique volunteer opportunity, because many of these org could never afford to hire an agency to manage SEM campaigns, and it allowed a way for people in my profession to contribute a valuable service to further a good cause while leveraging our unique skill set.
I would love to do it again, but unfortunately, it was for Googlers only. I've only found one site which seems to offer a similar placement service, but it seems to not have been updated in ages.
Any thoughts on how I might get back into SEM volunteer work? If no programs exist which match talented SEM strategists up with needy charities, is there any way I could independently seek out charities and offer my services?
