Volunteers can be attracted to not for profit (NFP) organisations through a variety of means. Many
come individually, drawn to your organisation’s activities through their personal networks and
community links – or even through your organisation’s own recruitment drives for volunteers.
To maximise the benefits of employee volunteering, it is essential that both the not-for-profit
organisation and the business understand how each side operates. This guide is based on
Volunteering Victoria’s extensive experience in advising and working with NFPs and employers
to build partnerships.
