Do you know what motivates your donors and volunteers to support your cause?
Volunteers believe in your organization, they give 100% and of course, they’re doing it for free. All this makes their contribution invaluable, but just like with employees, they need to be managed professionally.
A recent study by The Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) states that overall US volunteers served 8.1 billion hours in 2010, valued at an estimated $173 billion, with volunteers providing 52 hours of service per year. With the budget challenges you may face, can you imagine the impact to your organization if you had a volunteer force giving an hour a week of service for a full year!
