3 Ways to Connect With Volunteers on the Go

Volunteers are an essential part of your nonprofit, connecting with them is crucial in order to have the necessary hands for the necessary project.

When your volunteers aren’t working with you, they’re out and about working 9 to 5, taking care of their kids and/or doing their homework, cooking dinner, or out saving the world. They have their own lives and may not be thinking about your organization as hard or as often as you do. You can bet, though, that wherever they are,  they will have their cellphones with them. Over 90 percent of all American adults have phones and most carry them wherever they go. Use the following 3 ways to communicate and connect with your volunteers on the go!

  1. Use Social Media Wisely. You probably already know that Facebook is a great way for you to get in contact with your volunteers, but there are many more social media sites you can use and take advantage of:
  • Twitter
  • Instagram
  • Snapchat
  1. Let Volunteers Know About Grants. Did you know that there are companies out there what will donate money to your organization for every hour that your volunteers work? This incredible option is a great way to get your volunteers to come out and do it for the cause!
  1. Reach Out at Your Next Live Event. You can let your volunteers know all about your:
  • Text-to-give campaign to raise awareness and donations.
  • E-mail newsletter that loads well on mobile devices.
  • Mobile-responsive website with all the latest volunteer opportunities.

Use this time to get them to sign a sign-up sheet for your newsletter when they can stay on top of your events.

Your volunteers are under your supervision, and may succumb to injury while working. A quality insurance policy is exactly what you need to keep your organization safe.
