Industry-Leading Features for Volunteer Centers
VolunteerHub provides the feature-rich solution your volunteer center needs to effectively engage, recruit, and manage volunteers. Many volunteer centers, just like yours, find that VolunteerHub software helps to create a holistic approach to volunteerism at their organization. Here are a few VolunteerHub features that can push your volunteer program to the next level.
Landing Pages/Web-Based Registration
VolunteerHub makes it easy for volunteer centers to promote opportunities and allow volunteers to sign-up online. Your organization can use our web-based solution to create branded landing pages, list available opportunities, and streamline registration. This functionality provides even more value when your volunteer center needs to promote opportunities from partner organizations. If your volunteer center is looking to provide volunteers with an easy-to-understand list of opportunities, VolunteerHub is a great option.
VolunteerHub is a great solution for volunteer centers because users can create limited administrator accounts that allow partnering organizations to have access, limited to their own events. This functionality makes collaboration possible and can help your volunteer center strengthen relationships within your community.
As a volunteer center, it is important that your volunteer data is organized, up-to-date, and easily accessible. VolunteerHub software makes it easy to automate hour tracking and create a well-organized check-in and check-out process for both in-person and virtual volunteers. Using VolunteerHub, reports and records can be accessed anywhere with an internet connection. This hour tracking functionality can save your volunteer center time and increase data reliability.
The steps you take to engage volunteers have the potential to positively or negatively impact retention rates. Today’s volunteers need to be nurtured, communicated with, and recognized. VolunteerHub makes the process of engaging with volunteers easier for your center staff. Your organization can use VolunteerHub to send group emails and texts, integrate your volunteer program and social media platforms, and encourage friendly-competition through a points-based reward program.
Here are a few examples of how organizations are using the VolunteerHub platform to engage volunteers and staff.

Did you know that, according to a volunteer retention study, 1 out of 3 volunteers who commit to service in one year do not volunteer the next? Retaining volunteers is crucial to the success of your volunteer center and the value you can provide the community and partners.
VolunteerHub can help your volunteer center retain volunteers through effective personalized communication, ease of registration, and rewards and recognition.
Accurate and timely reporting can help your volunteer center better understand volunteer behavior and program efficiency. In VolunteerHub, reports can be generated quickly and used to evaluate volunteer trends, activity, preferences, and ROI. We offer volunteer centers access to an array of standard reports including rosters, sign-in sheets, and registration history (event, user, etc).
Return on Investment (ROI)
When used strategically, your volunteer management solution should provide a return on investment (ROI). How your volunteer center measures the ROI of your volunteer management solution depends on your overall program goals and mission. A few of the most common ways to measure volunteer software ROI, that may apply to your use, include volunteer value and increases to your total volunteer pool, the conversion rate between volunteers and donors, and bandwidth in the community (are you increasing partnerships as a result of being streamlined and organized?)
At VolunteerHub, we have built a strong reputation as the premier provider of volunteer management software. Our team has helped many organizations exceed program goals.
