Strategy SummaryToday, when multiple organizations are chasing the same dollars, citizen advocates, business sponsors andvolunteers, standing out from the crowd is critical to success. Standing out enables your organization toconnect—with a prospective donor or program participant, or a corporation interested in starting a causechapter at their organization. And you have to connect to convince.There is a real need to begin with connections and this is where volunteer program relationships cansignificantly augment an organization. For it is through connections that awareness starts, interaction iscultivated, impressions established and hopefully retention, engagement and loyalty ultimately secured.These are all positive outcomes of a beneficial volunteer experience and are actually where the inroadsfor future opportunities for engagement, partnerships, networking, funding and community relationsdreams are laid.Providing a strategic plan to secure 450 corporate for the current volunteer database will involveevaluation consisting of research and analysis of current programming. Once that has taken place, thegoal is not just too secure corporate volunteers, but more specifically to maximize the volunteerexperience, increase volunteer engagement, decrease attrition and allow for volunteer cultivation whilesupplementing capacity building within the organization.My experience and understanding of corporate volunteerism is that it entails a fairly straight cultivationpath of connection, convincing, caring and commendation. To which degree each component isapplicable depends upon the values and culture of the corporation while taking into account thegoals/mission of the corporate partners as well.
