Managing volunteers is tough for any not-for-profit.

Volunteer schedules, organising events, attracting and onboarding volunteers, matching your volunteers’ skills and interests, and engaging and retaining volunteers can cost a considerable amount of time for many volunteer managers. Therefore, not-for-profits must have a system in place that can help juggle all these time-consuming but important tasks so you can dedicate more time towards achieving your mission. 

This is where Microsoft's Volunteer Management and Volunteer Engagement solutions can help.

Volunteer Management is part of the Microsoft Cloud for Nonprofit solutions built on Power Apps for volunteer managers, or other delivery team members, to better manage the daily processes around their volunteers. It gives a 360-degree view of volunteers and helps make the most of their skills, and makes it easier to recruit, onboard, and retain volunteers, and manage volunteering events.

Volunteer Engagement is also part of the Microsoft Cloud for Nonprofit solutions built on the Power Apps Portal for volunteers to see what events/activities you have scheduled, the details, and how to apply if they are free, qualified, or interested.
