How do Nonprofits use ID Card Systems?

Staff IDProper identification in a nonprofit setting is a key component of maintaining secure operations, particularly visual identification. ID cards can be worn by nonprofit employees at all times as well as by temp workers. Typically, ID cards are worn on badge reels or lanyards by the employee and should be highly visible to program directors and building security personnel.

Volunteer ID CardsVolunteers make up the vast majority of nonprofit workers. Because there can be such a high number of volunteers, it is crucial to arm them with photo ID badges or at least information IDs that contain their name, purpose or position, and ID number if available. These volunteer ID cards should be visible at all times, and be noticeable to onlookers, staff, and anyone who is served by the nonprofit.

Visitor BadgesIt’s quite common for nonprofit organizations to issue visitor ID badges to guests as a way to ensure everyone entering the building is properly identified. Typically, visitors will first register at the reception area and obtain a visitor badge before gaining access to certain areas of a facility or to tour the nonprofit. A perfect example of this is a person entering the building for a job interview. This method prevents potentially dangerous intruders from freely roaming company buildings. One of the best ways to increase the level of security in a nonprofit organization is to establish an effective visitor management system, and ID cards are a vital part of this process.

Multifunctional & Smart CardsNonprofit or charitable ID cards serve a much greater purpose other than simple photo identification. Many NGOs, museums, pet adoption agencies, and other organizations are utilizing data storage technologies (e.g. barcodes & magnetic stripe cards) to keep important data of their employees & volunteers such as their status, position, and the date they started working. Additionally, Smart cards have become a common type of technology employed by non-for-profits and can be used as access control cards. The possibilities are endless when it comes to data storage.

Access ControlYou’ll find that numerous organizations heavily rely on access control cards to ensure only authorized individuals have the ability to enter certain areas of a building or zone. These are usually nonprofit employees, volunteers, directors, and security personnel. An access control card is a sure-fire way to prevent unauthorized persons such as intruders from gaining access to restricted areas and compromising security.

Holiday / Thank You TagsBecause nonprofits generate income through their donors, showing appreciation for their contribution helps solidify their commitment to the organization’s cause. One of the many unique aspects of ID cards is that they work wonderfully as holiday and thank-you cards (typically referred to as greeting tags). These cards can be personalized for the holidays, especially during Christmas and sent out to donors as a way to thank them for their contribution.

Membership CardsNonprofit organizations often issue membership cards to their donor base to allow them to gain access to charitable events such as luncheons and speaking engagements. Membership cards often list information such as how long the cardholder has been a member; the date the card was issued; the expiration date; and any other notable information such as membership benefits.
