63 million American adults volunteer their time and talents each year. Like many nonprofits, these volunteers are likely the lifeblood of your organization. But recruiting new volunteers and retaining the ones you have can be an overwhelming task. How can you convince individuals to invest their time and energy to support your mission?
Volunteers give their time and talents, but they need something in return. They need a clear understanding of the good they do and the purpose of their contributions. One key volunteer recruitment and retainment strategy is to measure and share the impact of your volunteers and the overall impact of your organization in the community. When volunteers see a clear correlation between their work and solving some of their community’s greatest needs, it will inspire them to further invest themselves in your organization’s mission.
On February 8th, SureImpact CEO and Founder Sheri Chaney Jones will be joining CivicChamps to discuss how to measure and share the impact of your volunteers in order to increase volunteer engagement and revenue.
