Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

With VolunCharity, organizations can find volunteers and get donations more easily than ever before, resulting in both qualitative and quantitative gains. Volunteers can find charities they’d like to help, via an app that uses gamification to make the process fun, motivating, and fulfilling.

VolunCharity uses leading technologies to make this happen, including blockchain native architecture, graph database, gamification, cloud-native development, and more.

The VolunCharity board and initial team has more than a century of combined business and technical experience, including years of experience with volunteering at various levels.

Small amounts of fundraising, establishing a social-footprint, and putting together the initial C-Suite and Board have been our immediate goals. We have the infrastructure set up and now it's time to move onto major fundraising and development of our demo platform, to include the VolunCharity mobile application.

Data
  • We review compensation data across the organization (and by staff levels) to identify disparities by race.
  • We ask team members to identify racial disparities in their programs and / or portfolios.
  • We analyze disaggregated data and root causes of race disparities that impact the organization's programs, portfolios, and the populations served.
  • We disaggregate data to adjust programming goals to keep pace with changing needs of the communities we support.
  • We employ non-traditional ways of gathering feedback on programs and trainings, which may include interviews, roundtables, and external reviews with/by community stakeholders.
  • We disaggregate data by demographics, including race, in every policy and program measured.
  • We have long-term strategic plans and measurable goals for creating a culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
Policies and processes
  • We use a vetting process to identify vendors and partners that share our commitment to race equity.
  • We have a promotion process that anticipates and mitigates implicit and explicit biases about people of color serving in leadership positions.
  • We seek individuals from various race backgrounds for board and executive director/CEO positions within our organization.
  • We help senior leadership understand how to be inclusive leaders with learning approaches that emphasize reflection, iteration, and adaptability.
  • We measure and then disaggregate job satisfaction and retention data by race, function, level, and/or team.
  • We engage everyone, from the board to staff levels of the organization, in race equity work and ensure that individuals understand their roles in creating culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
