See if Skills-Based Volunteers Are Right for Your Nonprofit
There are likely skilled professionals – specialists in accounting, information technology, human resources and more – in your community ready to volunteer at your nonprofit, but are you ready to receive them?
Do you have the right infrastructure? Staff available to plan and manage? A clear focus?
What about 10 minutes to take advantage of this free resource? The Skills-Based Service Engagement Tool can help your nonprofit determine how prepared it is to engage skills-based volunteers. Such volunteers use their professional experience, talents and education to address the unique needs of nonprofits.
Through thought-provoking questions and instant feedback, the tool – created by Points of Light and the Taproot Foundation, with support from the ConAgra Foods Foundation – provides tangible recommendations for nonprofits looking to boost their ability to meet their missions by attracting talented professionals as volunteers.
