Calculating the Economic Impact of Volunteers
How does one put an economic value on the time volunteers give to an organization? Traditionally volunteer time has been estimated using a single dollar value for all types of volunteering. The Value of Volunteer Time, which is updated annually, is made available by Independent Sector. The current Independent Sector rate is $22.14 per hour (2012).
