we are talking about professional time a technician is the key

Charity in one form or another has become part of the lives of most people in Europe and the USA, but in Russia the issue of support for NGOs remains acute with a low level of confidence in the activities of most charitable organizations. The situation is gradually improving, and, for example, if in 2015, donations to NGOs doing only 9% of all respondents, CAF World Giving, in 2017 these people already scored 17%.

The problem, in particular, is the low awareness of the potential volunteers about the opportunities intelligent assistance funds. So, in USA more than 80% of hr professionals admitted: other things being equal they would prefer a candidate with reference to intelligent volunteering in the summary. And 85% of them are willing to forgive the shortcomings of the summary candidate with an experience of this volunteerism. In Russia, in addition to the low awareness of as among the funds and among potential volunteers, there are many questions to each other.

Fund “Friends” was conducted more than 200 interviews with current and potential volunteers to determine their motivations to work pro bono and intellectual barriers to volunteering.

“Give a few hours of your professional time per week, or periodically connect to the work of funds for a specific project can, I think, almost each to help with the design contract, design Christmas cards, make a translation of the article. Intellectual volunteering, as well as other types of assistance should be a standard practice of every conscious person. It is also quite consistent extension of CSR for many smart brands, which does not require any special resource inputs, only full support and motivation, and returns loyalty and increasing employees”, says managing Director of the Fund “Friends” Oksana Razumova.
