Recognition Ideas

Volunteers need to feel valued. Recognising and rewarding their efforts will be appreciated and is important when encouraging volunteers to continue in their roles.

Recognition of volunteers should be:

  • personalised
  • timely
  • sincere
  • specific
  • consistent
  • often

Developing a club volunteer recognition strategy will help address these criteria. It will also send a positive message to the volunteers in your club about the importance placed on their contribution.

There are many ways to recognise and reward volunteers. Some are free and very simple and others require a lot of planning and cost money. The template will provide you with many ideas.
