True Volunteer Foundation

To put it simply, BlackBerry has helped increase our output. If we didn't have BlackBerry smartphones, the amount of work volunteers could do in a day would be much less, which means we wouldn't be able to do as many projects in year.

Full Story


  • True Volunteer Foundation (TVF) was finding it hard to get volunteers who would give their time in today's increasingly busy and mobile society
  • After conducting research TVF decided to take advantage of "dead" commuting time to engage new volunteers
  • TVF needed a technology that would enable this


  • BlackBerry® smartphones
  • BlackBerry® Messenger (BBM™)


  • The BlackBerry® solution helped TVF maintain a near-zero cost base
  • It helped improved the efficiency and effectiveness of each volunteer and therefore of the charity as a whole by increasing output
  • BBM has contributed to improving geographical coordination and communication generally
  • The solution has helped contribute to TVF's brand image when working with corporate sponsors as it maintains the charity's reputation for efficiency and professionalism
