Can FundRaiser Track Volunteers?


Many organizations separate volunteer management from donor management, which means that often two separate systems are involved. Volunteer Coordinators often rely on spreadsheets or personalized databases to track who is actively volunteering, when they work, scheduling, and even tracking availability, skills, or work preferences. Grouping these volunteers into teams or crews becomes problematic, because it is often a manual process. Since many volunteers also financially support an organization, wouldn’t it make sense to have them both in the same database?

Both FundRaiser Select and Professional offer a Volunteer Module. This module will allow your organization to track active and past volunteers, including information like application, background checks, or training completion. In addition, make note of your volunteers’ availabilities, group them into teams, and even create a schedule.

The reports which come with this module will make year-end reporting a breeze. You’ll have the ability to showcase individual volunteer hours, cumulative totals, and even track team and group goals. The built-in word processor also supports volunteer merge fields, as well.

With the increased organization the Volunteers Module can bring, it will help streamline operations. Spend more of your time cultivating your volunteers or reaching out for new ones, rather than on administrative tasks. Let FundRaiser handle these functions and really begin to see how volunteers make your organization grow.
