Wondering how it could be easier to find meaningful and relevant volunteer opportunities? Do you own a company that wants to engage civically but just don’t see the feasibility? Look no further than the Toronto-based non-profit 'Framework,' which runs their Timeraiser events in six cities across Canada.
A Timeraiser night “is part silent auction, part volunteer fair, part night on the town,” an innovative and collaborative approach to civic engagement. It offers a return on every hour spent volunteering that isn’t only a sense of fulfillment or personal contentment.
This collaborative approach to hosting Timeraisers has been key to their success to date. Timeraiser has reinvented networking, civic engagement and keeping it local, and I wouldn’t be surprised if other non-profits popped up with similar win-win-win agendas.
Another trend that Timeraiser has latched onto is tracking the impact you have on your community as your Civic Footprint. Check out more on their website!
