How to partner with Activate Good to manage or support your Employee Volunteer initiatives
Planning corporate service projects and events or volunteer teambuilding activities takes time and access to resources. This is especially true when you seek that special touch that will make the day memorable, or an opportunity that can accommodate a larger group in a specific geographic or cause area. To smoothly plan a successful corporate volunteer project or event, you need experience, local knowledge, dedicated time, and attention to a variety of details that could impact the local environment, the beneficiary, and more. That’s why Activate Good’s Corporate Engagement Program provides custom services for companies. With our experience and connections to 500+ local nonprofits and public schools, we can save your team hours and hours of staff time that would be necessary for research, planning, and other preparation to pull off a large service project or event, or to lineup regular service opportunities. But we’re not just saving your company time and resources; we’re also saving time and resources for the causes you want to impact. Many nonprofits encounter capacity issues preventing them from being able to effectively accommodate special group volunteer requests or manage larger facilitated volunteer events on their own. A common misconception is that volunteering does not cost anyone anything. In fact, providing space, supplies, and adequate staffing to manage volunteers – especially special, customized, or large projects – can carry significant costs to the nonprofit. When Activate Good takes on the majority of planning and coordination for special projects, the nonprofit receives the benefit without these usual costs, too!
Activate Good supports companies with offices or events in the Triangle by providing full-service and support options that can be tailored to a company’s unique needs and goals for volunteer teambuilding and community impact activities.
