Credit unions 'Volinspired'

A pair of local credit unions have bought into the Kelowna company behind the volunteer-oriented social network Volinspire.

Combining elements of Facebook, LinkedIn and Fitbit, Volinspire allows users to find volunteer opportunities in their communities that are tailored to their own interests. It also tracks the hours they’ve volunteered, and allows them to share stories and compare with friends.

Interior Savings and Prospera credit unions are both founding community partners with the organization, and announced this week they have purchased shares in the company, becoming equity partners.

For more on the surprising ways the credit unions say Volinspire is changing their organizations, check out the full story on Castanet's sister business news website, Okanagan Edge.
