This summer, VolunteerMatch was one of many organizations supporting the Obama Administration’s United We Serve – Summer of Service campaign.
The stated goal of Summer of Service was to kick off a sustained campaign to help to make volunteerism and community service a part of the daily lives of all Americans.
So how did we do? What happened?
After taking a close look at our metrics and usage patterns in search of measurable results, the VolunteerMatch team has published a report on the activity in our network. The report answers a number of key questions:
- How many interested volunteers did we attract?
- How many nonprofit organizations were involved?
- What opportunities were volunteers most interested in?
- Above all, what was it worth to the nonprofit community?
The results may surprise and encourage you. It is just one perspective, but from where we sit America is looking a lot more helpful than most of us had planned on.
