Bank of Time
The Bank of Time is a unique innovative platform of intelligent volunteering. The world of philanthropy and the corporate world have got aquatinted. In other words, Bank of Time platform allows funds to get free access to professional consulting. On the other hand, the people who are full of desire to share their time get an opportunity to be useful.
In practice The Bank of Time IT-platform will join funds with intelligent volunteers. A fund or any NPO, filling the brief, formulates its specific request: “we are doing a charity event and we need legal support", "we are to organize a charity show and need PR-support”, “we plan rebranding and we need a designer”, “we need to get the necessary documents to apply for a grant” etc. Usually staff of such funds is small, and there are no specialists who are able to solve the problems mentioned above.
On the other hand, The Bank of Time aggregates professionals – these are the employees of the Friends Foundation partner companies. In fact, the corporate help is individual in this case, because it is always a single person who invests into The Bank of Time. Each of these «investors» of time and expertise has their personal profiles inside the platform.
Friends Foundation is not only the project founder, but also an expert, who is responsible for communication between funds and professionals as well as for the result. On the one hand, we control if all the objectives are set by so called costumers precisely and on the other hand, we are supervising the quality of performance from the experts side.
