Does your nonprofit leverage its most valuable resource?
Volunteering is the most powerful force out there for creating connections and forging long-term relationships. Volunteers spend time within your organization, getting to know staff and clients. They see the positive impact of their service first-hand. They experience the satisfaction of being part of that success and feel invested in your mission.
A volunteer who finds meaning in their role and believes in your organization will give more than their time and talents.
They will make in-kind gifts when they see an unmet need –
help you advocate when funding cuts loom or regulations change –
and they will give financially, often quite generously.
A smart, sustainable nonprofit values the volunteer role and makes it a strategic priority – even when they’re unsure how to accomplish that.
That’s Where I Come In
As a Volunteer Engagement Specialist and CVA (Certified in Volunteer Engagement), I help nonprofits thrive by ensuring that their volunteer program is structured for success and guided by well-trained staff.
I accomplish that in two ways:
By Consulting – to develop the strategy and systems needed to serve more visitors or clients, and raise more money through volunteer involvement
By Training Volunteer Managers – to ensure that leaders of volunteers are skilled in best practices that increase volunteer retention and satisfaction.
My work is informed by 20+ years in volunteering management and development – and by my commitment to honoring the volunteer contribution.
A strong volunteer program is part of the big picture for capacity building. It’s a carefully considered investment which, if properly stewarded, will yield significant results. Work with me and I’ll show you how to get there.
