Use ‘em or Lose ‘em –
Do You Know the Value of Your Volunteers?
How do you find NEW volunteers? The best way is to get referrals! How? Network! Most volunteers are very busy people but they want to GIVE to their community in some way. ASK!
You need to have a good ‘commercial’ in order to promote your particular cause! Why should I volunteer with you and not ABC organization down the street?
Always have one good example of how your organization helped someone – make sure it has punch! Would someone change the channel or fast forward through your commercial? OR would it grab them and touch their heart (or pocketbook)! Think Hallmark!
KNOW your need! Once you get a referral for a volunteer, do you know where you’ll USE ‘EM?
