About VolunteerMatters

VolunteerMatters is a cloud-based volunteer management solution that is used by corporations, schools, governments, member-based organizations and nonprofits to recruit, coordinate and track volunteers.

Volunteer managers can create opportunities and available shifts, then assign volunteers to specific tasks. Using stored volunteer data, including contact information, skills, interests and engagement status, managers can also filter data to generate lists of volunteers that match an opportunity’s requirements. These volunteers can then be contacted either individually or via bulk email.

Additionally, volunteers can self-manage their profiles within VolunteerMatters, so organizations maintain accurate contact data. Volunteers can also search for ...

All in One System

We moved our volunteer system from paper to online with VolunteerMatters.

Pros

This software is user-friendly and is ever-changing with feedback from the consumer.

Cons

There has been no 'kiosk' option to check-in volunteers but I hear that changes are in the works.

Reasons for Choosing VolunteerMatters

It had the right functionalities with the right price for our organization.

Great platform for volunteers!

Overall our experience with VolunteerMatters has been great and what really stands out is customer service of the VolunteerMatters team. At any point when a question arises, the VM team is quick to help us and will hop on a call at any time. We've enjoyed our experience with VolunteerMatters and would recommend it to other organizations.

Pros

Our organization loves the ease of creating volunteer opportunities, the option for integrated background checks, and the ability to design the application as we need. It is simple from both the administrator side and the volunteer side.

Cons

The VM software is simple, but as with any software it takes some time to learn the in's and out's of everything it can offer. But once we made sure to set aside time to train our employees and go through the online trainings we discovered that is was fairly simple and offered a wide range of help on their website.

The customer service and ease of use for volunteers are top notch!

I am so thankful to the support team at VolunteerMatters. [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] has helped us set up our new system and allowed us to take as much time as we needed. He answered a million questions that I asked and always followed up when he said he would. I cannot say enough wonderful things about the support staff and how they will bend over backwards to help you.

Pros

We recently upgraded to the newest version of VolunteerMatters and we LOVE how easy it is for volunteers to use. The software is clean and simple. I love having the ability to add graphics to different projects and signing up for a shift is straightforward. Setting up new projects is easy once you get the hang of it and you have control over what and when volunteers can see in the system.

Cons

There's not a ton of customization you can do on your own (aside from graphics and the view for different pages). I wish you could see all the shifts for a project immediately without having to scroll to the month they've been scheduled in. I also wish you could delete multiple shifts or projects at once instead of doing it individually and having to scroll through the months again. All of these are small complaints but if these were fixed it would make our experience a lot better!

Great volunteer management system

The overall management of volunteers is getting easier as we continue to build a volunteer base in Volunteer Matters. It has the ability to electronically onboard volunteers through the application, policy sign-off, background check, reference checks, online training, and other credentials. It allows the organization to post what we need, and the volunteers sign up for projects. Volunteers can track their own hours, or it can be set to credit them for a set number of hours for the task they complete. Nice flexibility options are available.

Pros

Volunteer Matters works well to create awareness of volunteer opportunities with our organization. It was easy to learn how to administer, and their customer support is very good.

Cons

Their online classes on how to use the system are extremely helpful in getting familiar with all that the system can do. Some features are administered by Volunteer Matters, rather than being available to the company's administrator. Their customer service is very responsive, so this is a minor "con."
