The Bristol Volunteers Card project will partner with local businesses to reward volunteers for all the hard work they do in our city.

The Bristol Volunteers Card is being set up to reward the people in Bristol who give their time freely for charities and non-profit organisations. We are partnering with Bristol businesses to bring discounts, incentives and rewards to volunteers in Bristol and the South-West. What's more, the fundamental idea of this card is that it is free to volunteers.

We also want to create a community of volunteers and supporters of charities and non-profit organisations in Bristol and the South-West. This can help volunteers meet other volunteers and discover opportunities to offer their skills to the non-profit sector. It also provides charities with a platform to advertise their positions and dip into the pool of professional and volunteer talent available in Bristol.

Our further aim is to also support local businesses and are looking to partner with recognisable Bristol brands, such as Boston Tea Party, art centres, such as the Arnolfini,  and smaller local independents, such as No. 20, all of who are already going to support Bristol Volunteers Card by giving 10% discount to card holders.

With Bristol Volunteers Card everyone wins. Volunteers are rewarded for the work they do, charities can find the best talent to help their organisations and concentrate their funding on service users, rather than staffing and admin costs, and local businesses are promoted through their support of the project.

To start this project we need some initial funding for our intended mid-September roll out. We need funds to:

  • Develop our website and social media and pay for website hosting and promotion fees,
  • Office space and equiptment, including a server and computers,
  • Do our first print run of 500 Bristol Volunteer Cards,
  • Marketing materials to promote the project to local businesses,
  • Expenses associated with contacting every business in Bristol and persuading them to back our project (this mainly involves vast quantities of coffee).
