Harnessing the power of volunteer commitmentVolunteer Management
Volunteers are the backbone of nonprofits across the world. A study by independent sector found that 63 million Americans logged 8 billion hours of volunteer time in 2018, equating to over $200 billion in annual contribution.
Keep your volunteers motivated and engaged with your mission
Volunteers represent an increasingly valuable asset for nonprofits, especially in raising awareness, broadening reach, and fostering new funding relationships. Recruiting, recognizing, and retaining volunteers is a critical component of organizational success. A strategic volunteer management plan is going to offer nonprofit organizations in general and volunteer-driven organizations in particular the benefit of increased organizational engagement, better retention rates, and more referral opportunities. We help organizations develop a roadmap, address volunteer program efficiency, and build a more strategic, positive volunteer experience.
