Welcome Volunteers

  •    With many charities reporting that they use volunteers, it is hard to  imagine where the philanthropic community would be today if it wasn't  for the help of these altruistic individuals. Volunteers perform a  variety of tasks for charities. For example, a volunteer might stuff  envelopes, feed animals, tutor children, build houses, serve as a museum  docent, counsel those in crisis, sell tickets or just answer the phone.  At the highest levels, volunteers serve on the board of directors and  are charged with the crucial task of governing the organization.

Just how generous are Americans with their time? According to the Corporation for National and Community Service, in 2015:

  • 62.6 million Americans volunteered
  • Representing 24.9% of U.S. residents
  • For a total of 7.9 billion hours of service
  • Representing an estimated value of $184 billion 


And all those volunteer hours were spread out among a variety of causes as depicted in the following chart:

If you are considering joining the millions of Americans that  generously give their time to help make this world a better place, then  we encourage you to follow these three steps to maximize the experience  for both you and the charity you assist. 


Step 1: Identify charities that match your charitable interests
Similar to making a giving decision, you should begin your research by  determining what it is you want to accomplish and identifying charities  that work to achieve those goals. 


Step 2: Quantify and qualify what you can offer

Contact your list of potential charities to assess their volunteer  needs and determine if your skills match those needs. With many  charities having paid volunteer coordinators, don't be surprised if you  are asked to stop in for an interview. You may even be required to  undergo extensive training once you are accepted into their program.  Thus it is a good idea to conduct a self-assessment to ascertain your  personal goals before you reach out to a charity. Be sure you can answer  the following questions:

  • How much time can I realistically give in a week, month or year?
     
  • What days of the week and time of day am I available to volunteer?
     
  • What unique talents do I possess that would help this charity achieve its mission?
     
  • What tasks am I unable or not willing to do?
     
  • What do I hope to gain from the experience?
     
    • Do I want to develop a new skill set that would be transferable to the workplace?
       
    • Do I want to meet new people with similar interests?
       
    • Do I just want the gratifying feeling of helping?
       

Step 3: Make a commitment
Once you identify a charity worthy of your time and are offered a  volunteer position, it is important that you make a personal commitment  to be there for that organization. Volunteers that show up late, cancel  at the last minute and produce limited results encumber the charity, costing it money and preventing it from fulfilling its mission. A reliable volunteer with a strong work ethic can go a long way towards helping a charity meet its goals. Remember the organization has made an  investment in you and is depending on you to produce a return.


A nonprofit is as strong as the community that holds it up.
