Volunteer engagement is crucial to any nonprofit’s success. Our free POINT dashboard for nonprofits gives your organization tools to keep volunteers interested and coming back.
Give volunteers an easy way to track their impact
Enabling volunteers to track and see the impact they’ve had gives them a sense of accomplishment for doing good. It also is motivation for them to keep coming back to work with your organization. Each POINT volunteer gets their own impact tracker profile that details all of the ways they’ve given time and money.
You can see this information too, and there’s lots of possibilities for how you can use it to boost engagement! For example, you could send each volunteer a thank you card at the end of the year with a copy of their stats (specific to your organization), or use this data for friendly competitions with prizes for volunteers who reach a certain number of hours or donations.
But our volunteer engagement tools don’t stop there. We also send them notifications and email reminders for the events they sign up for, enable nonprofits to easily contact volunteers, and we have multiple ways for people to get involved. They can give time by volunteering for events, or donate any amount of money (because every dollar counts!), or even contribute gently-used or new items to your in-kind registry.
Simple volunteer engagement tools
POINT gives you simple, easy-to-use tools to retain volunteers and keep them involved with your mission.
Volunteer App Features
Volunteers can access your organization’s opportunities on the mobile app or web platform and your own website. Each volunteer on POINT gets their own Volunteer Impact Profile to track their impact, total up their donations, and easily see the organizations they support.Read More
Automatic Volunteer Time Tracking
By checking a volunteer in at an event, you approve their hours. We automatically track hours for events posted on POINT, but volunteers can add their own outside hours to their POINT profile using either the mobile app or web platform.Read More
Self-Submit Volunteer Hours
Don’t lose out on the reporting the work volunteers completed on their own time! Volunteers can also self-submit hours for your organization, and POINT notifies admins so they can approve, edit, or deny those hours.Read More
Volunteer Reminders and Notifications
We bug your volunteers so you don’t have to. When a volunteer signs up for your event on POINT, they can easily integrate it to their calendar, plus we send out push notifications and email reminders. We even send out thank you emails after an event ends! You do less work and cut your no-show rates. (FYI—across POINT nonprofits the attendance rate is 97%!)
Your volunteers receive automatic reminders to sign up for events you post, but you can also mass email volunteers from your POINT dashboard. Sort by all active volunteers, specific groups, or people who signed up for a certain event. No more copying and pasting into email—just select the volunteers you want, write, and send!
Micro Donation Platform
Nearly 80% of volunteers also donate money to the organizations they give time to. Your supporters can use POINT to give money with a tap—no amount is too small or too large! Their impact is tracked in their POINT profile, and you get a report of all the volunteers who have donated to your organization.Read More
In-Kind Giving Registry
Think of POINT’s In-Kind Giving Registry as a nonprofit version of a wedding registry. Request items your nonprofit needs that can be dropped off or shipped to your location, or ask for funds to purchase specific items. Our in-kind registry is especially powerful during emergency situations for disaster relief.Read More
