It’s National Volunteer Month.

This month is dedicated to promoting and celebrating volunteerism,
but you can embrace the spirit of philanthropic participation year-round
with a volunteerism platform that makes it easy and rewarding.

Give employees what they want: the opportunity to give back.

Today’s workers want their employers to actively make the world a better place. And they want to roll up their sleeves and take part. You can give them all the options they could ever want with the world’s most flexible corporate philanthropy software. Encourage employees and your extended community to get involved. Realize global impact with virtual and in-person volunteer opportunities managed all in one place, accessible to administrators, employees, and your nonprofit partners.

How do your volunteerism programs measure up?

“The grassroots vision of Viral Engagement builds on the strength of our program, which is our committed team members. We think it’s a game-changer for corporate philanthropy.”

Reshaping Volunteerism for Virtual Engagement

We have outlined three strategies for reshaping volunteerism to adapt programs and provide purposeful engagement opportunities for employees.

Guide: The Power of Employee Giving and Volunteering

Today’s workforce is one of the smartest and most self-aware in decades. How they acquire job satisfaction has quickly evolved, and what used to drive employee retention – things like salary, benefits and job security – while still very important, has been eclipsed by employees that are looking for additional avenues of motivation and engagement.

  • April is Volunteer Month

    April is National Volunteer Month - Here's How To Get Ready April is a month to commemorate giving back to your community through volunteering. Want a game plan to make sure you maximize your efforts? Follow these steps! Gather your resources and team (virtually, of course) to make sure everyone is on board and ready to bring their A-game. Depending on the size of your company and the systems you use, there are endless ways you can use the resources you have to make an impact in your communities locally and globally. Whether you have corporate philanthropy software in place or not, communication is key. Make sure all employees are aware of your volunteerism goals and understand how they can get involved through email outreach and through your company’s intranet to amplify your message. Just as communicating for maximum engagement is important, tracking hours and impact is vital to a successful volunteer month initiative. Using a system built for organizing volunteering events is recommended because it helps organize and manage the entire process from logging employee hours, community involvement, and nonprofit event availability through volunteer match integrations or independent submission. However you manage your volunteerism program this month, make sure everyone feels included, and offer accessible options for donating their time and talents!
