Supporting local communities
Bartercard actively supports its local communities through the sponsorship of a large number of community, business, and sporting-based events and personalities.
New Zealand clubs and associations rely on cash from membership sales, sponsorships, and fundraising to survive. Clubs and associations face a myriad of challenges when implementing a strategy that allows an increase in revenue and a reduction in fixed expenses so more money can be invested in the club. This is where Bartercard can help.
Tap into a new market
We aim to raise awareness of those we sponsor through the Bartercard brand, offset cash expenses, and maximise cash flow. We can assist with offsetting costs by tapping into the Bartercard ecosystem. Organisations also use Bartercard to sell unsold advertising space, sponsorship packages, and tickets. With the trade dollars they have generated, they save cash by offsetting some of their expenses using Bartercard for costs associated with functions, raffle prizes, merchandise, and the equipment needed to run successfully.
“Bartercard has a long-standing relationship with the Waikato Chiefs. Bartercard has allowed our organisation to approve capital expenditure projects based on a portion of that expense being on trade. We primarily use our trade dollars for accommodation when the team is touring, team manager expenses, functions and events, sponsorship events, operating expenses, and some capital expenditures. Bartercard has really helped us to preserve cash where we’ve needed to, and it’s a great support network for other charities and organisations looking for sponsorship.”
