Keeping Volunteers Engaged

I have been in fundraising for over five years now. I have worked in small shop organizations with a staff of five, to a larger shop organization with over 55 staff. They all had different goals, different ways of achieving their goals, and different communities to engage with. But, they all share one major theme – valuing and loving their volunteers.

So what’s the best ways to keep your volunteers happy and have them coming back year after year? Here are my five best ways to keep your volunteers engaged with your organization and loving you in the long run.

The great benefit of keeping your volunteers happy is that they will continue supporting your organization – whether with their time, money or other resources and ultimately they support the same cause that you do everyday.
