Corporate Volunteer Days
Whether your staff want to volunteer to fundraise for us, or donate their time to help with tasks at our centre or out and about in Bristol at the weekend, there are plenty of ways to get involved and help make a difference.
We’re keen to work with corporate teams who want to support our fundraising efforts directly, but we also have events volunteering, sewing, laundry, and skill sharing (from IT to marketing, photography to eBay, design work to mentoring, social media and websites) – companies often don't realise how many areas there are that they could make an impact in through this area of volunteering.
What does a Corporate Volunteer Day involve?
No two Corporate Volunteer Days are the same. A volunteer day could see your team helping us with tasks ranging from walking our doggy residents to helping with event preparation, fundraising or gardening, or it could be supporting us with some general maintenance around the site. Your group will also have a tour of our Rehoming Centre, which will give them a glimpse behind the scenes, and let them in on some of the funny, the weird and the wonderful stories of our former animal residents!
Do you have any opportunities for teams in 2020?
We're a really small team, and we receive lots of requests each month from local companies and teams who want to volunteer (mind you, who wouldn't want to come and be around our lovely animals?). For this reason we have taken the decision to allocate our Corporate Volunteer Days to corporate partners and corporate volunteer teams, who are able to commit to helping us raise funds throughout the year, whether through a Charity of the Year Partnership (or similar) or a one off fundraising event – we are happy to help support fundraising activities in any way we can. We have set a suggested target of £500 for a volunteer day, but find that companies often raise a lot more!
Are there other ways my company can support Bristol A.R.C.?
Definitely! From a 12-month 'Charity of the Year' partnership, sponsorship, or a one-off fundraiser in the office – we're experienced in supporting local companies and working together to achieve our shared aims and goals.
