Your Volunteer Time Counts!
Did you know that throughout the year it is important to report the hours you volunteer and the value of this time.

Each year the National Organization sets the value of our volunteer time. They refer to a website called www.independentsector.org. While there are different values for different states the national organization uses the average rate so that the reports from each department are consistent.

The 2016-2017 value for Volunteer hours is $23.56.

Please this when calculating your hours and valued time for any committee report form that requests such information.
