Service Enterprise Initiative

Are you ready to take volunteer engagement to the next level?

Organizations that know how to effectively engage volunteers and integrate them into their human capital strategies are shown to be more adaptable, sustainable, and capable of going to scale.  In fact, they operate at almost half the median budget compared with nonprofits that don't make full use of what volunteers have to offer, and can even expect $6 in return for every dollar invested in effective volunteer engagement.

In order to empower nonprofits, Team Giving has partnered with Points of Light, the world’s largest organization dedicated to volunteer service, to offer the Sacramento Region access to the Service Enterprise Initiative. The Service Enterprise Initiative is a national change management program that helps organizations gain a greater return on volunteer investment to better achieve their mission.  As a "Service Enterprise Hub," Team Giving is excited to offer local nonprofit organizations the resources, training, and support necessary to improve volunteerism in our region.  You can learn more about this program through the video below:

Achieving Service Enterprise certification is a very prestigious accomplishment for an organization. In fact, organizations that certify join the top 11 percent of nonprofits nationwide in volunteer management and organizational performance. Certification signifies that organizations have the capability and management expertise to strategically use volunteers to improve the performance of their organization. By becoming a Service Enterprise, you will be uniquely positioned to engage the time and talent of volunteers to expand program operations and revenue, realize higher programmatic impact and better achieve your mission.

According to research by Points of Light, Service Enterprises experience a 23 percent increase in volunteers annually, representing $63,000 in valued labor.
