See how Bloomerang can help you better measure volunteer impact in 2024
As we close out 2023, you probably have some view into the impact your volunteers have made, including how much time volunteers have worked and other basic information to share with others in your organization. To help you streamline your end-of-year reporting, make more intelligent decisions, and support grant submissions, we have some exciting new features that will give you a better view into your volunteer’s impact.
Here’s what you can do:
See the number of interactions based on how often volunteers showed up for work—a volunteer who helps over a period of time is more valuable than the volunteer who engages a single time. You’ll see their average contribution time across the organization, by opportunity, or within an opportunity.
Check volunteer activity
See who’s active or inactive, and trends for each volunteer. Set your own rules, for example, for those who haven’t worked within a specific time frame, and you’ll automatically see a picture of volunteer activity customized to your needs, and Bloomerang will automate! Specifically, you can see:
- Volunteers who have lapsed.
- Volunteers you’ve retained and are still active.
- Volunteers you’ve brought back and who became active.
- Volunteers who are disengaged and have stayed inactive.
Money saved from volunteer contributions
See how much money you saved based on the time volunteers contributed to your organization. For reference, The value of volunteer time has risen to $31.80 an hour, a 6.2% increase from 2021 to 2022. You can set the amount to best serve your needs.
