Each year, a magical monetary value for each volunteer hour established is established, and that most recent hourly number is $22.55. Nationwide, many non-profits collect volunteer data and define them in dollars to demonstrate the significant impact of community support. In that case, the value of volunteer hours to Meadowbrook Collaborative in fiscal year 2013-2014 was $9,380.80.

Volunteers provide support in a variety of ways. Some serve in an advisory capacity, putting in countless hours helping find new ways to raise funds, or increase awareness, or develop programming. Others host house parties to tell their friends and colleagues about Meadowbrook Collaborative, and ask them to make a financial contribution. There are also opportunities to volunteer during youth programming, helping children with homework, or reading lessons.

We like to place our own value on Meadowbrook Collaborative volunteers, and year after year that price tag stays the same — $$PRICELESS$$.
