People who support you without any expectations are your friends. What about people who support your non-profit association by taking responsibilities without any expectations?
One of the most important principles that survive your non-profit community is your volunteers. It is also your responsibility to make sure that they are happy. Let’s take a look at how we can motivate non-profit volunteers.
Prepare them for better works
Show them that you are not like the “other” communities which give the same task over and over again. They can improve themselves by participating your community.
Know why they volunteer
In this way, you will be able to learn the areas they want to improve themselves, direct your volunteers in the right direction, and create the right volunteer team. At the same time, you can see whether you are successful in conveying the goals and ideals of your community towards people.
Show your volunteers how they made a difference by taking their time for the community. Create platforms where you can meet and know each other better out of the meetings and events you organize.
Stay in touch
Share information about your meetings and your non-profit community with them. However, it is not enough. Don’t forget to send messages to your volunteers on special occasions.
Reward them for their work
Share your success with your volunteers. Show them that you have achieved these achievements with their contributions. Make them feel as part of a puzzle. Thank them all the time!
