Treat your volunteers with respect: utilize their skills

by fundraiseme on April 26, 2011

One of the easiest ways to save money for your organization is to lower unnecessary costs such as energy use, shipping fees, and marketing material design. Lowering your energy cost and reducing your shipping fees are obviously two things that you need to do as an office, but finding in-kind talent through volunteers is another effective way to lower costs. Make sure you are utilizing your volunteers in the best way – not all volunteers have to be actively engaged in your program. What if you know a great graphics designer that can volunteer her services for your marketing materials? Or how about videographer that can create amazing content for your website? These types of professionals can cost an organization thousands of dollars, so make sure to look in your networks before you hire someone….your boss will love it.
