Although in no way disputing that, it may prove more important if you're competing with someone who did the same thing for his or her employer. Lacking that, the interviewers may be darned impressed with your accomplishments -- particularly if you can show them something tangible, such as a user manual you wrote for a system you designed.

Moreover, if news reports are remotely accurate, more and more employers reportedly encourage their employees to volunteer in the community. They might be happy with something you did for a non-profit group.
