A nonprofit faces a variety of risks when it decides to use volunteers. While none of these risks should be ignored, few, if any of these risks represent insurmountable obstacles for the typical organization. While there is no silver bullet that eliminates all volunteer risk, you can protect your nonprofit and its board members by obtaining the appropriate insurance coverage and following best risk management practices. Balancing risk and reward in the area of volunteer management will enhance the effectiveness of your organization and make it the type of nonprofit that attracts and retains volunteers for key assignments.
