Volunteers are an invaluable resource for most nonprofit organizations. For many nonprofits, volunteers are the life blood that keeps the organization running.
According to a recent post from Socialbrite, engaging volunteers online can really pay off in the long run. Not only does it keep your current volunteers involved, but it can also often lead to the recruitment of additional volunteers who are connected to those you talk to online.
There can be financial benefits as well. Volunteers donate at a much higher rate than non-volunteers, and keeping them engaged in your organization’s mission, even when they are not volunteering, can help keep them feeling involved.
