Your volunteers play a valuable role in your organization, and we know how important it is to be able to acknowledge their contributions. We know it can be difficult to keep track of which contacts did what and that's why we've made it easy to log Volunteer contributions.
When you use our Volunteering tool to record volunteer time, you can organize and manage your volunteer records quickly and easily.
You can always find the volunteer records for a contact by clicking on Contacts in the left sidebar of your screen, finding the contact you want, and selecting the Volunteering tab under the Contacts title bar. Here, you will see a record of volunteer hours and tasks, as well as the activity, target area, campaign, and source for that time.
A volunteer record is made up of the following parts:
|Start and End Dates||When a contact began and finished a volunteer activity.|
|Hours||Duration for which a contact volunteered time towards an activity.|
|Description||What the contact did for their volunteer activity.|
|Volunteer Impact Area||
Contacts may volunteer their time towards a particular program, project, or area of your organization and its activities.
Select one existing target area or create a new one.
Contacts may volunteer their time in connection with a fundraising or other campaign.
Select one campaign or create a new one.
If the contact who volunteered came from a certain source (e.g. a corporation a school, through a referral)
Select or create one or more sources.
|Attachments||Attach files to the record of volunteer activity, and both the volunteer record and attachment will stay linked to your contact.|
