The Value of Volunteerism

Friday, July 22, 2016 10:39 AM | Deleted user

What if you had access to a group of volunteers that were highly skilled in delivering your mission?  What if utilizing these volunteers increased your ability to get things done quickly and effectively?  What if these volunteers made you more sustainable and reduced your costs?

Sign me up, right?

Nonprofit Network is adding a program that will teach your organization how to do just that – train and utilize volunteers in high level, mission-impact work.

Nonprofit Network is excited to provide a new program: the Service Enterprise Initiative.  We will facilitate nonprofit organizations through this initiative, a proven program that makes nonprofits more sustainable, adaptable, and better able to achieve their mission.

A certified Service Enterprise is an organization that doesn’t just engage volunteers, but has deeply integrated volunteers into their strategic plan and day-to-day operations, thereby allowing them to reduce costs and increase efficiency and effectiveness in providing services to fulfill their mission.
 Using the Service Enterprise model, certified agencies have been able to operate at half the median budget of their peers! 


If you're interested in becoming a Service Enterprise or if you'd like to learn more, please join me at the Introduction to Service Enterprise Webinar on August 11 from 12:00p-1:00p, when we'll outline how to become a Service Enterprise agency. Sign up to join in on learning or e-mail me to have a conversation about how to best leverage the value of volunteerism in building your organizational capacity.
