One challenge that many nonprofits face today is the ability to capture and truly understand the time supporters are providing their organization. According to an IRS study, 85 percent of U.S. charities have little to no internal staff. Most organizations were run by volunteers in 2018. Nonprofits that do not have a formal process for keeping track of volunteer hours, measuring the impact of volunteer time, and optimizing their program based on data are missing out on a substantial opportunity.
Tracking volunteer interaction is one of the most important strategic processes your nonprofit can take to better understand what actions your supporters are taking, what areas along the path need to be improved, and what strengths of your program should be leveraged in future.
