If you were ever in doubt as to when the right time was to volunteer your support to a non-profit…
A recent survey by nfpSynergy found that giving to charity continues to be at an ‘unprecedented’ 10 year low. Only 55% of those surveyed had made donations in the past 3 months vs 69% in January 2020.
More worrying, 40% said they expected to cut back the amount they give to charity in the next 12 months.
“While the vaccine rollout is in full swing… the economic ramifications of the last 12 months look likely to become an entrenched part of the next decade, given the enormous government debt needing to be serviced,” the report says. “…where does this leave economic security, public fundraising and charity donations?”
The pressure for non-profits is real — trying to do more with less. As an accountant you may be able to provide support with cash flow forecasting, funding applications and strategic planning.
AND there are multiple benefits for you as a volunteer from the personal to the professional. WIN~WIN.
