HelpTank is a digital marketplace connecting skilled professionals able to donate their time and skills pro-bono, and not for profit organisations that can benefit from their expertise right now.
The Who Did You Help Today Trust developed HelpTank following research showing that community groups can struggle to find and engage the skills they need. Meanwhile individuals with specific skills also report it challenging to find a volunteer role that suits them.
HelpTank provides guidance to support effective matches, including templates that not for profits can use as an outline to develop their volunteer projects. We also provide tips for the organisation and the volunteer to promote the best possible work relationship.
We also work with corporate companies that offer volunteer days to their employees by providing them this low-upkeep, high-value platform. These volunteers will apply for and be matched with a not for profit project that suits their time, location and specialty requirements.
Mobilising more talented people to donate their skills contributes to the Who Did You Help Today Trust’s vision of a New Zealand where caring and shared responsibility for resolving community issues is the norm.
We closely manage the continual growth of HelpTank so we can ensure quality matches and a good experience for everyone involved.
