Little Ways to Say “Thank You”

Informal recognitions on the troop/group and individual levels are great ways to say “thank you” to volunteers today! These sincere expressions of appreciation can be powerful when given with a personal touch. Examples of meaningful, informal rewards include:

  1. A welcome or thank you card or letter
  2. Skill-building learning opportunities (For example, how to use social media to network)
  3. A recommendation for a promotion
  4. Sending the volunteer’s supervisor or CEO a letter recognizing her/his contributions
  5. Complimenting a volunteer’s work to a supervisor or co-worker (in the volunteer’s presence)
  6. Showing interest in a volunteer’s personal life (such as asking about a volunteer’s grandchild or weekend plans)

If you have any questions about how to thank your volunteers, please email us.
