Many aspects of traditional nonprofits, such as collecting donations, raising awareness and planning campaigns, have moved online.
While you might not have thought of it this way, the relatively fast rise of online fundraising has indirectly boosted the importance of your volunteer program.
Accepting more donations online (and fewer in-person) means that your volunteer program is increasingly the part of your operation that involves actively and directly engaging with supporters.
TeamDNL has selected 5 of the most important tech practices that, when incorporated into your volunteer program, can result in major performance boosts:
- Use customized and integrated software.
- Focus on segmenting your supporter list.
- Personalize your engagement with volunteers.
- Streamline the volunteer application process.
- Use other tech tools to boost volunteer engagement.
Many nonprofits have neglected to develop their volunteer programs at the same rate as their fundraising. Remember, though, that your volunteers are among your most important supporters.
The Corporation for National and Community Service reported that “Volunteers are almost twice as likely to donate to charity than non-volunteers.” Clearly, these individuals are motivated by a strong desire to give whatever they can to help pursue a mission they believe in. They deserve the most efficient program you can give them, so continue reading to learn how.
