The foundation of the BAVC is a volunteer platform designed to connect area residents with local nonprofits based on the causes that matter to them.
Nonprofits share information on the platform about their causes and specific opportunities where volunteer support is needed. Volunteers create personal accounts on the platform to connect with organizations that match their passions and find opportunities to make a difference. BAVC’s goal is to bring all 100+ Barrington nonprofits, churches, and service organizations into one searchable database where volunteer opportunities can be posted and volunteer responses collected and managed.
The Barrington Area Development Council purchased the software license and the Barrington Area Library is providing training and support for our platform. The software is free to our users under a sub-license and was built to strengthen our local organizations.
