Without our dedicated, hardworking volunteers, it would be difficult for most nonprofit organizations to fulfill their missions and achieve their goals. In honor of National Volunteer Week, we want to help you give thanks to your volunteers and win them over with your gratitude and appreciation.

Why it’s Important to Thank Your Volunteers

  • Volunteers are 66% more likely to donate financially to the organizations they support

  • 62.6 million volunteers give their time every year

  • Volunteers spend 50 hours/year donating their time

4 Ways to Thank Volunteers

Showing your gratitude goes a long way

1. Create a video

  • Say thank you in a video that showcases your volunteer’s impact
  • Send the video via text, email, and post it on social media
  • Send text messages with links to videos with encouragements through the volunteer day

 

2. Create a digital donor wall

  • Post your volunteer names on your website or social media channel
  • Give your volunteers a keyword and shortcode to text in recognition of other volunteers
  • Display the recognition on a live feed

 

3. Make it personal

  • Have those who are being helped say thank you to volunteers with letters, video tributes and social posts
  • Share these with all your volunteers via a multi-channel (text, email, social media, online) ‘gratitude’ campaign

 

4. Volunteer appreciation day

  • Focus on storytelling and showcasing volunteer’s impact on your organization
  • Can be in-person or demonstrated visually or digitally by broadcasting it on Facebook or YouTube Live
  • Use a call-to-action with a keyword and mobile-friendly online form for easy volunteer sign-up
