About this Session:  For many nonprofits, the offer from a volunteer to help on a website, look at a budget, or provide database support is a double-edged sword. Help is nice, but the wrong help on these critical infrastructure challenges is doubly costly as a nonprofit must find a way to first “use” the volunteer and still make sure the work gets done. Join Elizabeth Schwan-Rosenwald to learn about best practices in using skilled-based volunteers in ways that work for your organization and the volunteer. Hear what success can look like based on 15 years of learnings from the Taproot Foundation and think about how to make sure volunteers are working for you!
