Corporate Volunteering

Corporate volunteering offers many benefits for your company and employees. Importantly, it gives you and your employees a sense of contribution, whilst performing the usual work-related roles.

The most effective way that you can support us is through donating your skills. Your employees have a wealth of knowledge, specialist skills and experience, which can help us improve our business.

As with any business, Bravehearts needs marketers, fundraisers, accounting and administration staff. By donating your skills in these areas, you are providing us with valuable resources that can only enhance our team.

It also provides your employees with an opportunity to learn new skills, within the restrictions and challenges of a not-for-profit organisation.

This type of volunteering would be scheduled to fit in with your work employees’ availability to ensure there’s as little disruption as possible to their normal work schedules.

We would welcome the opportunity to talk with you about participation in corporate volunteering. If you’d like to know more then please contact our Volunteer Coordinator Jess Ward on 07 5552 3000.
