Value of Volunteering

By Betsy McFarland

The Independent Sector recently released the new Value of Volunteer Time of $27.20 an hour. While this can be a helpful measure, we must go beyond simply counting the number of volunteers we engage and the hours they contribute. It is critical to also demonstrate the impact of volunteers -- What actually changed because of volunteer efforts? Get the book Measuring Volunteer Impact and check out this blog post, Mission-Centered Volunteer Data Collection, from our friend, Dr. Sue Carter Kahl.
