Episode 25: The Power of All-Volunteer Nonprofits

So many of the nonprofit organizations in our communities are run by volunteers. There is no paid staff moving forward their mission. In this episode, Nancy and Sarah speak to these organizations and how they can be sure to provide both the governance and management functions every organization needs. They point out the challenges these organizations often face, challenges that can be overcome with purpose and intention.

Questions to reflect on before you listen:
If you serve an all volunteer organization, what do you do well as an organization?
If you aren’t with an all volunteer organization, name the organizations you know that are all volunteer. What do they do well?
