About This Blog

Welcome to Engaging Volunteers, the VolunteerMatch blog for organizations that recruit and partner with volunteers to reach their missions.

Volunteer recruitment and management is not a prominent topic on most nonprofit blogs – yet the majority of nonprofits rely on volunteers to survive. Volunteers are also a key resource for cultivating financial support, since 2/3 of volunteers donate to the organization they serve, and on average they donate 10 times more than non-volunteers.

We hope you’ll visit Engaging Volunteers often for tips, news, best practices and stories about volunteering as a major focus in the nonprofit sector. We consider it an honor to support the important work of our nonprofit community members.
