openCurrents is Austin's volunteer reward engine.  As a volunteer, you earn 1 Current for each hour volunteered and can exchange Currents with participating businesses for discounts or donate them back to your favorite nonprofit for fundraising. 

To earn Currents, become a member of openCurrents on GivePulse and once you create an impact share it with us.  If you have existing impacts, you can always edit them and share them with openCurrents to get awarded your Currents. 

Alternatively, tag @openCurrents on Instagram when you volunteer. to redeem your Currents. 

Our mission is to promote civic engagement at scale!
