For many of you, this single number helps you make sense of the sheer power of your volunteer corps. Is this figure a full and accurate depiction of all the contributions that 63 million volunteers make every day? Of course not, but it does give our organizations and communities one way to show the value that their service brings to our communities, our country, and our world.
In honor of National Volunteer Week, Independent Sector thanks all the volunteers in communities across the country who give their time in service of others. Whether you are lending a helping hand to your neighbor, providing pro-bono work to a local nonprofit, or serving on a board in your local community – you make a difference.
