Introduction to the Purpose-Driven Vounteer Impact Model

Volunteers contribute to a library’s mission, labor, donations, awareness, and reputation. Yet, reports about volunteers often omit these contributions and highlight only volunteer numbers, hours, and financial values. To bridge this gap, the Purpose-Driven Volunteer Impact Model will help participants to identify meaningful ways to capture and report volunteer value. It provides a holistic approach to demonstrating volunteer impact by linking it to the library’s mission and audiences. This webinar was presented by Dr. Sue Carter Kahl on March 23, 2023.
