When operating a nonprofit organization, oftentimes you rely heavily on the support of volunteers. Like a business working to build a network of loyal customers, you’re looking for continual, unpaid time from these individuals. How do you ensure they come back? As great as your organization may be, the mission is not the only component to retaining volunteers. The three major components to ensuring volunteers return are motivation, culture, and recognition.
