HASH(0x9fa76984) out of 5 stars An Essential Guide for Nonprofits April 7 2010
By Shannon Kempe - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
First off, let me say that I love a book written about nonprofit management that is giving a part of its profits to a nonprofit organization. Not only should you purchase this very poignant, easy to read book to aid in the success of your nonprofit volunteer management, but to help support a nonprofit, the Humane Society, in their cause.

Volunteer management is a topic of survival for most nonprofit organizations as they rely on volunteers to make their mission a reality. This is quite literally a manual to aid nonprofits in a time of need, and nonprofits should never turn a blind eye to such an expert perspective of successful volunteer management. Right from the beginning it is obvious the author is well experienced in working with volunteers and passionate about the work nonprofit organizations do. Her expertise is demonstrated by the sheer number of people she was able to get volunteer their time and expertise to the project of the book.

The book is easy to read and follow with simple bulleted tips within each section, clear examples of what is being described and case studies to back up the author's steps within the process. Each section will cause you to pause and absorb its important contents as they expand into related critical topics such as staff involvement, branding, working with the media and incorporating modern technology into your volunteer process. I love that so much time is spent on the planning before you even begin the actual recruiting volunteers. It's so important to be ready for your volunteers before they show up from every aspect to ensure the volunteers have a comfortable experience which enables them to provide effective use of their gifted time.

HASH(0x9f875498) out of 5 stars 365 Ideas is ideal April 13 2010
By Heidi A - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
365 Ideas for Recruiting, Retaining, Movitating and Rewarding Your Volunteers by Sunny Fader makes the case that your organization's volunteers are best off evolving, not revolving. Don't kick yourself about volunteer turnover, turn over a new leaf instead and follow Fader's lead to lead the pro-bono crew that surrounds you. You will no longer think twice about empowering, engaging, motivating and making nice. Fader also dispells myths about building, retaining and rewarding your team. From budgets to burn-out, achieving volunteer utopia will no longer be a dream.

Fader also does an excellent job motivating you. Her tips, trends and case studies [including the advice to build your brand so the volunteers will follow] surround you with successes, providing ideas and ideals from in, and outside of, the box. You'll find that it's okay to start small, so long as you're thinking big when it comes to organizing volunteers for your organization. Open this book and know that your opportunities are going to be bigger and better than ever.

HASH(0x9f9a6810) out of 5 stars A Dealing with Volunteers Essential July 24 2012
By Chris K. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
365 Ideas for Recruiting, Retaining, Motivating, and Rewarding Your Volunteers delivers practical information and tips for non-profit organizations of all sizes. A balanced mix of common sense ideas and innovative approaches, the book serves as a good reminder on how to ensure not only the quantity, but the quality of your volunteers. The author has compiled many great case studies from successful organizations around the country that help illustrate theories in practice. I especially liked the format of lots of bullet points, sidebars, and checklists; this definitely makes for a quick and handy reference. Another plus was the section on dealing with difficult volunteers - while it is easy to accept any and all help, it can be extremely difficult to cut ties when necessary and maintain your association's image at the same time. This is a good read to be passed along to staff, board members, and committee chairs.
