I think these cards are a terrific idea for volunteers, particularly event volunteers: business cards to use while representing a nonprofit! I just had to share.
The front of card carries all the key elements: branding for the event (or nonprofit), the purpose and the date. That makes the marketing/ brand team and the fundraisers happy.
The reverse contains relevant information about the event, but leaves plenty of latitude for the volunteer to open a conversation about the work of the charity, why this organization is important to the him or her and the community, and why she or he is committing time and talent to this project.
Note that the email listed is for a staff person at the organization, which ensures that there is an “expert” on the other end to answer questions or assist when necessary. And there isn’t a phone number.
This card allows the volunteer (or board member) to produce it when talking about event attendance, or offer together with his or her own business card or personal card.
These cards are a low-cost way to provide board members, ambassadors, volunteers, or table captains to start conversations, provide details and encourage follow-up for a variety of events or projects.
