Valley First

Volinspire

Bringing volunteers, charitable organizations and businesses together to build more connected communities

They say J.K. Rowling penned the early story of Harry Potter on the back of a napkin. We know what that’s like. In April 2014, with a cup of coffee in hand, we met with our community partner who shared a vision of growing a connected community through an online software platform. By the time our drinks were cold, we knew we could create good things together. Over the next eighteen months, Valley First partnered with Volinspire, offering insights on volunteer engagement, business needs and functionality that would benefit our non-profit partners. In December 2014, more than a year before Volinspire would officially launch, we made a financial commitment to the continued development and design of, what we knew, would be an innovative approach to how volunteers would lead in our communities. On December 3, 2015, Volinspire was launched.

One year later, Volinspire and Valley First remain committed to building a community of like-minded, socially responsible community leaders who positively impact our non-profit sector with their time, talent and treasure. Volinspire is a game changer in the landscape of employee engagement and volunteer connections—no matter where in British Columbia you’re located, you can get connected to social issues that matter most to you. Volunteer. Inspire your community with Volinspire!
