How to Recruit and Support Fundraising Volunteers

How to Recruit and Support Fundraising Volunteers

I’ll never forget 2007. 

That was the year that potential volunteers kept coming up to me at our volunteer recognition and recruitment event and saying “Hey! I’d like to help with fundraising!” By the end of the night, I had our golf tournament committee full, our silent auction committee full. I had volunteers signed up to ask for sponsorships, put up flyers around town, and hand-address appeal letters.  It was an incredible evening.  It seemed everyone wanted to be a fundraising volunteer.
