The Current Estimated National Value of Each Volunteer Hour Is $29.95
Volunteers in the United States hold up the foundation of civil society. They help their neighbors, serve their communities, and provide their expertise. No matter what kind of volunteer work they do, they are contributing in invaluable ways.
CFTEA has amazing, dedicated board members, regional advisory council members, and subject matter experts who have volunteered time to provide leadership, content updates, program direction, and hold fiduciary responsibility.
The thoughtful time and effort of our volunteers amount to $17,042 of donated value!
Although the value of volunteers is clear to most who work with them directly, there are still many who don’t see the full picture and value of the volunteer effort at their nonprofit. It is so important that our volunteers recognize the meaningful difference they make in giving back to a new generation of career champions! Many nonprofits still don’t fully recognize that their organization simply would not survive, or at the very least cannot scale in any meaningful way, without this vital talent pool.
While volunteers may be respected for giving something back to the community they should also be recognized for their on-going contributions and how their service has been important to the organization they serve. Thank you!!!
