Abstract

Volunteers have been described as the most valuable resource to a nonprofit organization. As a result, keeping them is essential to overall organizational success. Through the G.E.M.S. Model of Volunteer Management, several best practices are outlined in an attempt to sustain volunteer populations. However, the question remains if these best practices are being implemented and to what extent. An in-depth case study into two volunteer management structures in Grand Rapids, MI, USA were conducted in the hopes of exploring this question. The findings of this study found that each nonprofit organization utilized some of these methods to some extent with one doing so more than the other but neither one doing so fully.
