VolunteerHub provides the features your volunteer program needs to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic quickly, efficiently, and safely.
Running an effective volunteer program can help your nonprofit respond quickly to the COVID-19 pandemic and provide much-needed relief to the community. How is your organization managing volunteers and incorporating safety protocols into your program? Strategic volunteer management is a crucial component of deploying an effective volunteer program response, in a time of crisis.
Your organization needs to be able to respond quickly, efficiently, and effectively as demand for your mission, within the community, increases. VolunteerHub provides an all-in-one volunteer management software solution that is helping organizations, just like yours, streamline recruitment, engagement, and management of volunteer constituents amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
There are many features of VolunteerHub that can be used to help your organization’s volunteer program respond to the COVID-19 pandemic. Here are three.
Advanced Liability Waivers
The advanced liability waiver feature in VolunteerHub can help prepare your organization and avoid exposure to unnecessary liability. Using VolunteerHub, your nonprofit can create volunteer release forms and require them to be signed prior to participation with your program. Waivers can be customized, depending on your organization’s needs, and have become increasingly valuable during the COVID-19 pandemic. Many organizations are using the advanced liability waivers feature of VolunteerHub to ask volunteers about their health, as part of the recruitment process. By implementing liability waivers as part of your organization’s safety protocol, you can reduce the risk of exposure to COVID-19 and other illnesses that could affect your supporters, staff, and clients.
Volunteer waivers can provide guidance for your volunteers and peace of mind for your nonprofit. It is crucial to protect your organization from potential liability and with the current pandemic, it is even more important to keep your stakeholders safe.
Communication & Notifications
Communication is an important part of volunteer management and how your organization responds to COVID-19. Effective communication can provide your volunteer constituents with information about your organization’s response to the pandemic, your nonprofit’s impact, and ways to become involved. VolunteerHub provides the communication features your organization needs to be effective.
Volunteer programs, supported by VolunteerHub, can provide volunteers with updates quickly, automate communications, and provide cross-channel notifications via text, email, and social media integration. Many organizations are also finding that the automated communications features, found in VolunteerHub, save their nonprofit hundreds of hours per year, in administrative time.
This time savings is proving to be even more valuable during the current pandemic at allowing NPO’s to respond faster.
Creating opportunities and registering volunteers to fill roles is what keeps a volunteer program going. Whether your nonprofit is already responding to COVID-19 or is anticipating a spike in need once the pandemic is over, now is the time to have the tools you need in place to respond to community demand.
Implementing VolunteerHub software can provide your organization with the functionality to create, promote, and fill opportunities without the barriers that a manual volunteer management process creates. VolunteerHub’s registration features can also improve the process for volunteers directly by allowing them to view opportunities and self-register for shifts via an internet connection.
Deploying an online volunteer registration process is one step that your organization can take to limit interaction and allocate administrative hours to community support during COVID-19.
The COVID-19 pandemic is an unprecedented event that is taking its toll on public health, the economy, and nonprofits all over the world. One thing we know is true, nonprofits will be needed more than ever once the pandemic is over. Implementing volunteer management software can help your organization reduce barriers, create a community-centric response, deploy safety protocols, communicate mission, and provide much-needed support.
