Projects & Connections
Below are some examples of the research, collaborations and community partnership we use to strength the non-profit sector.
Publications & Research
We do some really cool research into the way people want to volunteer. We also review how you are engaging volunteers and compare the two. We do all of this through the engagement and analysis that happens on the VolunteerConnector.
We are a part of some great collaborative initiatives that exist to support the non-profit sector. We would like for you to know about them.
Alberta Nonprofit Network - As one of the founding members of the Alberta Nonprofit Network (ABNN), we take time out of our day-to-day roles to talk with other like-minded organizations around the province. ABNN creates the space for big ideas and innovative solutions. Through engagement and collaboration, ABNN catalyzes a provincial network to address strategic issues and challenges.
Board Leadership Calgary - We know that affordable, accessible learning opportunities are so important. In particular, volunteers who are serving on non-profit boards require just that extra little bit of support to ensure their board experience is both meaningful and productive. With that in mind we are one of the organizing members of Board Leadership Calgary (BLC). BLC is a learning collaborative that was formed in 2013 for this very purpose. Every year, BLC learning events focus on local speakers and presenters that can relate to topics within the local context of volunteer governance.
VolunteerConnector - Finally, you probably want to know what we are doing and who we are working with to digitize volunteerism across our communities. That is done with and through our volunteer engagement partners of the VolunteerConnector.
