Return on Investment Worksheet & Infographic Templates
California's Get Involved Regional Leaders develop networking and training events for library volunteer engagement coordinators in their regions across the state. They decided a tool was needed for library volunteer programs to determine their Return on Investment, and then share that data both internally and externally in the form of an attractive but brief infographic that could also be used as a program's annual report. The document here is the worksheet they developed to be used by individual libraries to create the data for the infographic, and it includes sample infographics.

Building Capacity Through Volunteer Leadership
In a world where people are increasingly time poor, volunteering competes with work, family and leisure activities. As a result, many individuals are seeking a more meaningful volunteer role which provides greater impact. Simultaneously, a key challenge for volunteer involving organisations is the necessity to deliver more for less; to drive a greater return on investment. One way Volunteer Managers are able to address these needs is through the development of volunteer leadership roles.
