Volunteers are the backbone that provides invaluable support for organizations. Without volunteers, many important services go undone. So, it makes sense to show volunteers you appreciate their accomplishments.
Consider: Recent studies have found that about 63 million Americans give eight billion hours of volunteer service worth $193 billion. That's an estimated value of $24.14 an hour at little or no cost to your organization. Isn't it time you invested in a small customized gift that shows your gratitude? If you rely on volunteers, you likely do not have deep pockets to dip into to purchase gifts to show them just how much you value their time and selfless efforts. But, that doesn't mean that you can't show your appreciation and make your volunteers feel part of the team. With a little bit of creativity and the help of the professionals at Fully Promoted, you can create gifts that will serve as longstanding tokens of recognition and, at the same time, promote your organization's mission as well.
Personalized gifts can also inspire loyalty to your organization, foster a positive view behind your message, and help to retain volunteers to serve again. Cups, tote bags, lanyards and t-shirts are a good place to start. The good news is that the experts at Fully Promoted can take just about any gift item and make a volunteer feel valued. Maybe you're interested in seasonal gifts – hats in the winter and beach towels in the summer. From apparel and drinkware, to products that serve wellness and mobile communications, gifts can be customized to include the monogrammed name of the volunteer along with the logo of your organization to exemplify the recognition you both deserve for a job well-done. Volunteers do not expect to be lavished. After all, that's why they volunteered. Yet, there are plenty of ways to express your appreciation. Be creative, genuine and thoughtful. And remember, Fully Promoted can help you decide on the perfect personalized gesture of appreciation that your volunteers will want to show off for years to come.
