The most important volunteer survey questions to ask

Volunteers give freely of their time and talent when they believe in the mission of your organization. They want to be engaged in worthwhile work that makes a tangible contribution. And, like everyone, they want to be appreciated.

How do you make them feel appreciated? One way is to ask for their feedback on your volunteer program and their experience working with your nonprofit.

Soliciting regular feedback from volunteers through surveys will help you figure out what you’re doing well and what needs to be improved to provide a better volunteer experience. Plus, focusing your survey questions on the volunteer’s experience can help keep them engaged with the organization.

This doesn’t have to be difficult. The best feedback surveys pose relevant questions that are easy to answer. You can begin with a volunteer survey template that already has standard questions, then customize it for your organization and your volunteers.

Conducting volunteer surveys is an effective way to find out how volunteers perceive your nonprofit. A lot of templates have volunteer survey questions already, so it’s just a matter of tailoring the questions to your organization.
