VALUE OF VOLUNTEER TIME
Volunteers are essential to the charitable sector, and it’s not just about dollars and cents. Volunteering can be a measure of passion — and passion is the currency for changing the world.
Still, there are times when you need to put a dollar figure on those volunteer hours, and that’s where our annual index comes in. By calculating state-by-state wage equivalents, we can help you communicate the value of your passionate volunteers.
