Tell volunteers about the difference they make
After volunteers complete an assignment, let them know about the results of their contributions. Keeping them informed of their projects’ impact is the volunteers’ greatest source of motivation and fulfilment.
Issue an online volunteering certificate
Our website offers an easy tool to help your organization issue a certificate of appreciation to your online volunteers. The certificate features the opportunity title, the volunteer’s name and your organization’s name and logo.
Give due credit to volunteers
Add a short sentence about the online volunteers’ support in brochures, leaflets, newsletters, websites and other products to which they contributed, e.g.: “We thank our online volunteer [name of the volunteer], mobilized through www.onlinevolunteering.org, for editing this report”.
Feature online volunteers’ contributions
A great way of showing your appreciation is to publish your online volunteers’ stories on your website or in your organization’s newsletters or reports.
