Celebrating the Impact of Volunteers During National Volunteer Month This April - and All Year Round

Blog

"Every problem that the country faces is being solved in some community by some group or some individual. The question is how to get connected so that the whole nation can solve problems. A volunteer is a person who can see what others cannot see; who can feel what most do not feel. Often, such gifted persons do not think of themselves as volunteers, but as citizens – citizens in the fullest sense; partners in civilization." - President George H.W. Bush

Vetting and Managing the Charities in Your Employee Giving Campaign Requires More Than Great Technology

Civil rights violations and abuses. Health crises. Ever-diminishing natural resources. This can be a very depressing list so I won’t make it exhaustive. Yet in the face of this much turmoil, when I think of problems our society faces, I’m not disheartened. In fact, I am hopeful.
