3. DIY Fundraising - Working With Volunteers
Your fundraising volunteers will be representing your organization. They need to be trained and motivated to do the work they volunteered for.
http://www.diyfundraising.com/Working_with_Volunteers.html
Working with Volunteers Train and Motivate Your Volunteers
Your fundraising volunteers will be representing your organization. They need to be trained and motivated to do the work they volunteered for. Often, volunteers who have a genuine desire to get job experience or volunteers who have a great interest in a specific cause are those will work the hardest and will do what needs to be done. However, you can make all your volunteers more enthusiastic about helping your fundraising plan if you listen to what your volunteers want or need from their volunteer experience. Providing a pleasant work environment, interesting tasks, and even motivating them through prizes or praise can make your volunteers feel better about working for your group. Building a team atmosphere through periodic meetings can also help motivate your team.
Volunteers are not employees
Your volunteers are like your donors they are people who offer their services to you at no charge. It is insensitive and often ineffective to treat them as employees. You should also try to give your volunteers some value for their experiene as well as periodically express your appreciation for your workers, much as you would express your appreciation for the money that donors give. Your volunteers are offering you a valuable resource by offering you their time. Do not squander this gift or take it for granted. If your volunteers are overworked, outsource some of that work to new volunteers. If you are overworked, try asking to see whether any volunteers would be interested in taking on a larger workload.

Working With Volunteers
Volunteers can help in many ways, including:
  • reading your mail to you helping you complete forms assisting with grocery shopping joining you for a walk.
Working with a volunteer is a partnership. You receive help meeting your goals and your volunteer gains a new and rewarding experience. You teach and learn from each other. Acknowledging the assistance that volunteers provide is important. Ways you can help your volunteer:
  • Be prepared. If youre going shopping, have a list ready. It will make the experience pleasant and efficient for both of you. Collect and organize the mail and other material you want to have read. Show appreciation. A thank you card is one option. Honouring National Volunteer week is another. It runs from April 27 to May 3 in 2008.

  • The use of volunteers is well-established in Countryside Services, but less so in RoW sections. However, there are notable examples of authorities having one corps of volunteers (often operated by the Countryside team) who then do work by arrangement for the RoW Section as well. There are several roles within the RoW area which volunteers can fill admirably. Amongst the obvious ones are :
    • The monitoring of path condition either on a regular basis within a stipulated area, or as a one-off project. Waymarking can be done effectively and economically by volunteers who have had appropriate training. User surveys can provide much useful information to a RoW section and volunteers are often interested in this work and very capable of doing it. Some authorities also use volunteers, after training, for practical work involving minor upkeep and improvement tasks on paths.
    The contribution volunteers make to ROW work is assessed in the CSS report on Resources for ROW Durham County Council has a very effective voluntary ranger service which includes adopt-a-path wardens, tree wardens, guided walk stewards, site patrols and practial working parties. The authority supports the service and employs a vounteer coordinator to ensure the needs of both sides are met. For more information see the voluntary rangers page of

Working With Volunteers
Volunteers are the life-blood of any chapter. Learning to recruit, train and (most importantly) keep volunteers is essential to a chapter's success. Here are some ideas and resources to help you strengthen your volunteer base.
Volunteer Recruitment
Volunteers are an essential part of our mission in leading insurance business practices through education and advocacy. Volunteers lead the organization at many levels and in many ways. From ASCnet board members and chapter officers to committee and task force members and those who hand out name badges at meetings and events, every volunteer is an important part of who we are and what we accomplish. Your chapter needs volunteers to help with tasks such as planning meetings, creating newsletters and web pages, and managing finances, to name just a few. But finding, recruiting, and retaining volunteers can be a challenge. You know what your chapter needs, but what are the needs of the volunteer? Every ASCnet member is a potential volunteer and it is important that you match an individual's skills and interests with the right job. Recruiting volunteers starts with engaging members in chapter activities and getting to know them on a personal level. This can help you cultivate their interests and ensure a mutually satisfying volunteer experience.

Working with Volunteers
(Atlanta, GA)- Over the last decade, Trees Atlanta developed a thriving volunteer network that plants trees every Saturday, rain or shine, from October through March. Category: Volunteers OVERVIEW From April though September, volunteers provide follow-up care for trees planted in previous years. Approximately 1,500 volunteers plant and maintain 1,500 trees annually.
BACKGROUND Trees Atlanta was established in 1985 by Central Atlanta Progress (the downtown business leaders' association), the Atlanta Commissioner of Parks and the Junior League to improve the green space in downtown Atlanta. Its original focus was on planting large street trees in the downtown area. Trees Atlanta raised money for both the trees and for contractors to do the planting. About 10 years ago, Trees Atlanta decided to broaden its scope beyond the downtown area and begin planting in the surrounding neighborhoods. This change required Trees Atlanta to develop a network of volunteers to assist with the planting and maintenance of the trees. Neighborhood trees were smaller than those planted in the downtown area and could be managed by volunteers. In addition, there was not enough money to pay landscapers for the new target areas.

Download pdf - 102K Recruiting for Success ... Summary Volunteers are the "lifeblood" of any not-for-profit organization. It's critical to ensure that the methods your organization uses to recruit, train and support these volunteers reflects a well organized and caring organization.
Recruiting for Success
Before you begin to recruit volunteers for the various duties within your organization, it's wise to consider the following:
  • What specific tasks need to be done?
  • Which tasks should be done by volunteers?
  • When, where and how do we recruit volunteers?
  • Who recruits volunteers in our organization?
  • Who will train the volunteers?
  • Who will supervise the work of the volunteers?
Let's face it, not everyone enjoys searching out individuals to help do a job (asking someone to volunteer). Recruiting volunteers can be a time consuming process. Unfortunately, it often becomes a case of looking for a "warm body", somebody, anybody, to get the job done.
Why Recruit?

        This information is provided at Volunteering Ireland at http://www.volunteeringireland.ie/page.php?id=3 What is policy? Volunteer-involving organisations tend to work within the parameters of this framework: Organisations can have policies on any number of subjects, including staffing, health and safety, equal opportunities, finance, etc. Policies are a statement of the ethos and values of an organisation. They define a boundary within which things are acceptable. They also clarify roles, relationships and responsibilities and they can serve as a basis for decision-making. Policies tell people what to do in any given situation; procedures tell them how to do it. Policies are frequently unwritten, but written policies are preferable, for many reasons, including:
        • they force the organisation to think strategically and act professionally they ensure continuity over time they are lent greater importance and therefore assure more compliance they make sure there is less chance of misinterpretation.

I don't ever remember hearing her call a plant by its Latin name, but she could grow anything bigger and better than anyone else I've ever known. We'd walk amid rows of sprouts, and she would occasionally point out a stray shoot and remark, "That one came up volunteer." Her phrase sounded peculiar to my young ears, but it made sense. The "volunteer" had survived last year's growing season to become a fruitful addition to my grandmother's favored plot. Ministry volunteers are much the same. They make a productive contribution into the lives of women whey they are given freedom to thrive wherever they are planted. Here are some helpful hints that you can put into action as you seek out volunteers in your ministry.

Feb 1, 2007 12:00 PM, RCM Staff Report
  • Tell volunteers that they can come to you at any time for help and understanding. Let them know that you are available to them. Be willing to sit down individually and listen to their questions and problems. If volunteers need to visit a facility or attend a special event to help them in their role, encourage them to do so, and support them in it. If budgets are part of volunteers' responsibilities, work through the bud-get so they understand how it works. Be sure that volunteers have complete instructions. Don't let them start a job until they know exactly what their duties and limitations are. Where appropriate, develop checklists and job descriptions for key roles. Prepare a timeline with details on when every piece of the task should be completed. Then, follow through by monitoring progress. Make them aware of the importance of their job performance. In case they have questions, tell them who their contact person is.
