I recently met with Felicity McLean from Leap CR, a platform to link non profit organisations with employees who want to give some time to support causes they care about. They are keen for refugee organisations, including Refugee Community Organisations to benefit from the opportunities arising from employee volunteering.
Here is a quick summary of Leap CR’s work from Felicity:
Who are LeapCR?
LeapCR is a platform that brings together over 700 nonprofits with employees working at the world’s leading companies and brands.
We work with UK-Wide companies such as Nationwide Building Society, Logica, Aegis Media, BNP Paribas, Mace and QBE.
Nonprofit Partners share their mission, campaigns, events and fundraising activities with one of the most attractive groups of supporters on the planet: people that work in caring, community friendly companies. LeapCR is totally free for Nonprofits!
Here’s how it works:
- Nonprofit Profile – our partners all have a profile page on the site – a space to add your logo, mission, info and social media . We’ll send you an activation link to get started, then add colleagues from Events, Volunteering, Fundraising and Corporate Partnerships, who can all access and mange the page in future.
- Content – add your events, fundraising ideas, individual or team based volunteering opportunities to the site, then all you need to do is sit back and await volunteers!
- Extra Mile Service – once your opportunity is ‘live’ on the site, your opportunity and profile page will be searchable by employee volunteers locally and across the country. This means anyone from the graduate, to the line manager to the CEO can request a volunteering experience with your organisation.
