This whitepaper, "Every Hour Counts: The Power of Financial Volunteering in the Non-Profit Sector" produced in partnership with Marks Sattin, highlights the critical role of finance professionals in supporting the non-profit sector.
Facing unprecedented challenges, including reduced donations and increased demand, non-profits urgently need skilled financial volunteers. However, current volunteering levels are alarmingly low, particularly among younger demographics.
Our comprehensive analysis from industry research and a series of stakeholder events, identifies strategies to enhance volunteer recruitment, support, and retention, calling for a collaborative effort to mobilise finance professionals, ensuring their skills make a positive impact in building a more financial resilience non-profit sector.
We extend our thanks to Marks Sattin for their ongoing support of Charterpath’s mission to chart a path between non-profits and financial skills. We also thank all the individuals and organisations who have actively participated in our events - your contributions have been invaluable in shaping the findings and recommendations in this whitepaper.
This #EveryHourCounts whitepaper underscores an important truth - every hour of volunteer effort truly counts, especially in these challenging times. Together, we have the power to build a more resilient and impactful non-profit sector.
