One of the most frequent questions on listservs for volunteer program managers is: "What is the value of volunteer time?"

Since we're really tired of reading both the question and the responses, we decided to provide the definitive list of places to learn far, far more than you ever wanted to know about this subject. We've organized this into four categories:

  • No theories, I just want a number
  • Esoteric theory about what volunteers are really worth
  • Statistics on what entire countries of volunteers are worth
  • Using this information to make your program look good
