About volunteers: We find a higher success rate with volunteers from the nonprofit – they are generally more connected to the mission, know more people in the room, and have better odds raising and selling. We know that not every organization has that option though. We offer monthly training sessions to our certified MaxGiving volunteers who love to attend and help at fundraising events. Our volunteers have gone through background checks and are highly knowledgeable on our software.
