Published September 2009
When the economy was sinking into recession in early 2009, MAVA started receiving reports from members of dramatic and surprising changes in volunteer availability and of complex stresses for volunteer program managers.
In September 2009, MAVA decided to move beyond anecdotal information and survey organizations that involve volunteers to get a better picture of what was changing. 280 people across the state responded. This report explores the survey responses.
