Volunteer Engagement is the strategic leveraging of human capital (talented people) to expand impact and maximize organizational effectiveness in order to achieve the mission.
Research has demonstrated the benefits of effective Volunteer Engagement:
- Organizations that leverage Volunteers and their skills to accomplish their missions are significantly more adaptable, sustainable, and capable of going to scale.
- Organizations that effectively engage Volunteers are equally as successful in accomplishing their mission as their peers without volunteers, but at almost half the median budget.
- High net worth donors who volunteer give up to ten times more money than those who do not volunteer, and most donate to the organizations in which they are involved.
- Effective Volunteer Engagement has been shown in some cases to reap at least a $6 return on every dollar invested when considering the financial value of Volunteer involvement.
Many entities recognize the impact and value generated by Volunteers and their leadership.
