    Respectful Ways to Deepen Volunteer Giving (Lunch with NEMA)

    WHEN:  Wednesday, March 31, 2021, Noon- 1pm
    WHAT: Respectful Ways to Deepen Volunteer Giving
    WHO:  Elisa Kosarin, CVA, Twenty Hats
    FORMAT: Webinar

    Noon - 1 pm

    Museums depend on volunteers to enhance the visitor experience and assist behind the scenes. Their contribution of time and talents is priceless in and of itself. Did you know, though, that volunteers are also generous supporters? Research shows that volunteers give ten times more to their nonprofits of choice than non-volunteer supporters. To leverage this generosity, you must strengthen and support volunteer/development program collaboration.

    Lunch with NEMA and explore how to:

    ·         Create volunteer roles that appeal to donors, too

    ·         Communicate opportunities that lead to greater support

    ·         Collaborate internally to increase contributions, both charitable and in-kind

    RSVP here.
