These statistics in Third Sector made for stark reading yesterday, particularly in Mental Health Awareness Week.
The pandemic has affected us all so differently — some losing their jobs putting their livelihoods at risk, others never having worked harder and struggling to keep going.
Non-profit leaders face a constant challenge to do more with less… and when things don’t go to plan it is more than a reduced dividend/share price, it means a missed opportunity to help someone. This can be a heavy burden to bear.
Volunteers are absolutely critical in supporting the Third Sector during these unprecedented times… whether as a trustee, providing support and counsel to non-profit leaders or as an expert providing ad-hoc support through pro-bono services.
The greatest gift you can give is your time. So don’t delay — get in touch with us at Charterpath and use your skills for good in these challenging times.
