Volunteers = Donors Webinar Recap

Posted By: Melanie Campbell Video Library,


About this Webinar

Volunteers who believe in an organization’s mission are 80% more likely to donate and are more likely to donate 10x more money to charities than those who do not volunteer. Subsequently, donors who participate in at least one volunteer activity increase their donor retention rate by 2.5x. Volunteers and donors go hand-in-hand, and every nonprofit needs both.

This webinar focuses on how you can turn your volunteers into loyal and engaged donors by understanding what motivates your volunteers and donors, tips for segmenting your volunteers, and how to double down on storytelling to connect with your audience. In addition, there are tips on how to recruit more volunteers from your online giving and event registration forms. 

In a 2023 executive survey, Coalition members reported that bolstering organizational systems & infrastructure were top priorities. In our recent volunteer roundtable, members shared that volunteer tracking & stewardship is a top area of need in the volunteer space. We are excited to share that we're adding 3 new product discounts to support systems, fundraising, and members' volunteer management goals!
