Giving Compass’ Take:
• VolunteerMatch explains a feature on their website that lets members increase their exposure to various volunteer opportunities.
• This should prove useful for those who feel they haven’t quite found a great volunteer fit yet. Have you explored all the digital tools at your disposal? Giving Compass has other resources you can access.
• Some feel they may not have enough bandwidth when it comes to giving time to a cause. Could unlimited volunteering be an answer?
Ever dream about cloning yourself so your clone could go to work for you while you gallivant around town all day? Admittedly, I have. That’s why the VolunteerMatch Member feature copy opportunities is my favorite feature!
I know what you’re thinking — this tool can’t put on a shirt, pair of pants, and drive to work for you. That’s true. But what it can do is help you work smarter rather than harder, and recruit better, more qualified volunteers in less time. And unlike a human cloning machine, this tool is as easy as 1-2-3: copy an existing opportunity when you want; only change what you need.
By making it easier for you to create new opportunities from an existing template, copy opportunities frees up your bandwidth for tasks that might be more elaborate, such as engaging and retaining volunteers.
