Turning Volunteers into Donors
Thursday, August 13 from 9:30 – 10:30 a.m.
So which comes first-the volunteers or the donor? Did you know that 42 percent of donors first volunteered before they gave to an organization? An average volunteer is FOUR TIMES as likely to donate as someone who doesn't volunteer and they typically give TEN TIMES as much! So, some of your best donor sources may already be invested in your organization by giving you that other gift…time. What's the risk to ask the givers of time for money, too? It depends. We will talk about setting priorities, boundaries and goals.
