The Big Picture - VolunteerMatch's 2009 Annual Report
Transcript of The Big Picture - VolunteerMatch's 2009 Annual Report
Despite the fact that volunteers donate more time and money than non-volunteers,* organizations often under-invest in funds and resources to help their volunteer administrators thrive. VolunteerMatch has worked to fill this gap with the nation’s most extensive program of free trainings.

The VolunteerMatch newsletter series continues to be the workhorse of our membership communications. In 2009, more than half a million subscribers received these monthly compendiums of tips, news, best practices, and product announcements right in their inboxes.
Members of the VolunteerMatch team are frequently in high-demand at conferences. In 2009, an increasing number of employees appeared on panels and at podiums to help diverse audiences better understand such topics as best practices in volunteer engagement, nonprofit technology, social enterprise, and corporate volunteering as part of social responsibility.

“I wanted the chance to make a real difference in a little girl's life and provide her with a stable and encouraging relationship. I also wanted a reason to act like a kid again!”

Snapshots of Involvement
Volunteering was in the spotlight in 2009 encouraged by a President-elect who spent his inaguration eve serving as an MLK Day of Service volunteer.
VolunteerMatch was proud to help tens of thousands of nonprofits take advantage of this attention by making it easier for them to find the volunteer support they need.
For the past few years, the percentage of visitors who discover VolunteerMatch through from three prominent social networking services—Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn—has grown steadily. In 2009, VolunteerMatch launched an aggressive campaign to organize the communities of fans of volunteering on these sites in order to better serve them and help them connect with each other.

Excellence in Corporate Volunteering
Champions of the Year
The Toro Company
To encourage volunteerism and enhance relationships with local nonprofits, Toro uses our online tools to give employees the ability to search local nonprofits for opportunities of interest and provide the company with accurate data on its engagement efforts around the world.
• Real-time Collaboration – Volunteer registration was previously housed on a shared file, accessible to only one employee at a time. Now employees can sign up at the same time. If an event is full, the Waitlist feature automatically adds them when there is an opening.
• Community Connections – Toro’s branded landing page gives employees the opportunity to learn about volunteer events in all Toro communities, helping them feel like they are part of a global community.
• Expanding Leadership Opportunities – Employees are seen as volunteer leaders and gain experience in volunteer management that would not be available without VolunteerMatch.
The Arthritis Foundation is the only national nonprofit supporting all forms of arthritis and related conditions with advocacy, programs, services and research. In September, the Arthritis Foundation partnered with VolunteerMatch to increase and diversify its volunteer recruiting.
• Many of the Arthritis Foundation's 150 chapters and service points have been brought into the VolunteerMatch network and provided with our premium toolset, Community Leader, to maximize recruitment and engagement.
• VolunteerMatch visitors can find opportunities to volunteer with chapters of the Arthritis Foundation, including roles as Ambassador, Outreach and Health Fair Representative, and Fundraising Intern.
• Arthritis Foundation’s recruitment activity at VolunteerMatch has increased an average of 42 referrals per month, or 58%.

•This year, they also co-published a survey with VolunteerMatch investigating the health benefits of volunteering, finding that 68 percent of those who volunteered in the past year report that volunteering has made them feel physically healthier.
•To celebrate all of their hard work, Sue Osten and Deb Krause at UnitedHealth Group were recognized by VolunteerMatch as Champions of the Year for outstanding teamwork, leadership, accomplishment, dedication, and spirit by individual program managers.
VolunteerMatch received the tremendous support of Yahoo!, one of the world's most trafficked Internet destinations, and Google, the leader in online search, who helped us extend our reach and build our brand on the Web. Google has been a long-time supporter through its Google Grant program, which generously provides VolunteerMatch visibility at Google.com, while Yahoo! for Good has underwritten our banner campaigns in the Yahoo! network.
2009 In-kind Media:
2009 Network Referral Activity
Welcome to our first digital annual report. The new format nicely captures what was a year full of innovation and change.
The big picture has been changing, and it has given us new opportunities to do what we've always done best—harness emerging technologies to build smarter volunteer engagement networks.
We are very proud of the community we serve and inspired by its growth. Last year, we welcomed 8.4 million visitors, 37 new network partners, and helped our nonprofit members unlock $488M worth of volunteer service.
We've got a lot to share with you, so let's get started.
VolunteerMatch's strategy has always been to apply emerging technology to create smarter and more sustainable systems for volunteer engagement. In 2009, VolunteerMatch extended its public service to take advantage of emerging trends in mobile technology, social sharing and the “real-time Web.”

Social Media Sharing
New Social Communities
In 2009, VolunteerMatch began to organize our fans and followers on the most popular social networks. Today, thousands of VolunteerMatch supporters tune into our feeds and discussions at Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn for inspiration, to share ideas, and to connect with each other.
Also launched in June 2009, our VolunteerRewards module added features for integrating 'dollars for doers' incentives into our client's employee volunteering programs.
Volunteer Reports and Rewards
In June 2009, we launched Volunteer Reports during the National Conference on Volunteering and Service in San Francisco. This project completely overhauled our previous reporting capabilities, making it easier for our business clients to customize reporting for their unique needs.
from VolunteerMatch Solutions
In 2009, VolunteerMatch released its first API suite to support the next generation of integrated partnerships. You can see the new API in action online at American Express' Members Project.
Inspired by President Obama’s call to serve during National Volunteer Week, the VolunteerMatch team announced the release of our database of volunteer opportunities to outside developers under a Creative Commons license to expand the non-commercial use of our free service. Today, dozens of third-party developers are integrating our data into their Web sites under the terms of this innovative legal structure.

Volunteer engagement is much more than just building awareness of opportunities. While most of our audiences use our service primarily to connect with volunteers, a growing number of members are also taking advantage of our trainings, newsletters, how-to manuals, social networks and blogs to strengthen their work as professionals.
The George Washington University
VolunteerMatch provided GWU with the framework that made it possible for students, faculty and staff to track and report more than 150,000 hours of service to meet Michelle Obama's service challenge. She spoke at the school’s 2010 commencement.
• Overall, 4,148 people had service hours tracked on VolunteerMatch, and 163,980 hours were collected.
