Why Volunteer?

Volunteers have an enormous impact on the health and well-being of communities worldwide.

One way to measure the impact of volunteers is to take a look at how many hours were served within a year.

In 2010, 62.8 million people volunteered and using Independent Sector’s hourly estimate it was valued at $173 billion. That is a lot of value. If it were a company it would be bigger than Ford, AT&T or Apple.
