Virtual Volunteers – How to Recruit Online Volunteers For Nonprofit Fundraising
Recruiting volunteers to help with your fundraisers is not always easy. Most parent organizations, charities, teams, and other non-profits can always use as many volunteers and donors as they can get. Organizations have difficulty finding volunteers for a variety of reasons. One of the reasons is that the smaller and more local the organization is, the smaller the number of potential volunteers there are available. For example, a community soup kitchen will never be able to recruit as many volunteers that a national hunger relief charity will be able to. However, smaller nonprofit organizations have the same needs that the larger ones have. When it comes to fundraising, there is always a need for a fund-raising chairman, a person to do publicity, team leaders and members and the list goes on. In a previous article I wrote about how nonprofits can use the social media and social networking platforms on the internet to help raise money online.
