Bowness Community Association

Thank you for volunteering with the BCA and using Better Impact to view and sign up for activities. We use Better Impact to provide a single place where volunteers can see all available volunteer opportunities and log their volunteer hours.

Better Impact allows us to:

  • keep track of the volunteer hours put in, which helps with reporting and grant funding. By knowing how many hours volunteers put in each year, we can get a clear picture of the impact that the BCA on the community of Bowness. 
  • Provide a one-stop-shop for all volunteer opportunities at the BCA, including events, committees, Bowest'ner contributors, and program volunteers
  • Send reminders about volunteer opportunities you signed up for so you don't miss the big day
  • Invite you to volunteer appreciation events by making sure we have contact information for our volunteers to thank you for your hard work
