Life during the pandemic can be summed up in a few words: lock down, quarantine, and masks. But if you look beyond the struggles, you will also find generosity, community, and volunteerism.
While many nonprofits have reopened their doors for volunteers to safely resume serving, other organizations are continuing to engage with volunteers virtually with board/committee meetings and fundraising events.
Whether your volunteers are serving in-person, virtually or as a hybrid, we know navigating your organization post-pandemic comes with a lot of questions. We wanted to share some of our favorite volunteer resources from nonprofit leaders and organizations we trust:
