Happy 2016!

Happy New Year!

2015 has been one for the books, and we’re so excited about what’s to come in 2016. This year marked a huge increase in clients and registered volunteers. We even expanded our team with two new VolunteerLocal hires. And we have plans to do it even bigger and better in 2016!

Say “Hello” to the Newest Staffers!

Jenny is our Account Manager, finding new clients to benefit from VolunteerLocal and working to get them up and running. She graduated from Creighton University in Marketing and Spanish, and interned with VolunteerLocal before becoming full time. She’s a soccer pro and has an affinity for Mexican food, and has been a joyful addition to the team.


community_builder_lucy-1Lucy is the Community Builder and Customer Support Rep, ready to answer any and all questions while overseeing the blog and social media. She is a graduate of University of Iowa in English and Creative Writing, and worked at various nonprofits before joining the VolunteerLocal team. She’s a book nerd with a sweet tooth, and is thrilled to be the newest Williams.


Sparkly new Conquer Plan

You may have noticed a new plan-type on the VolunteerLocal Plans & Pricing page. The Conquer Plan is here to conquer all of your needs with credit card processing, shift swapping, name badges, minimum shift requirements, volunteer certificates, and bulk shift assignments. Bonnaroo & FloydFest have already signed up, and we’re looking forward to even more Conquerors in 2016!

Why, hello Justin Beiber (we’re on YouTube, too)!

You have questions. We have answers! Check out our tutorial videos to learn how to get started, create reports, communicate with your volunteers, and more.

Coming to a 1 Million Cups Near You…

We utilized the 1MC Passport Program to present VolunteerLocal in six cities across the country, with more happening in 2016! Big thanks to Kansas City, Cedar Valley, Des Moines, San Diego, Colorado Springs, and Cedar Rapids for being great hosts.

Partnerships and Discounts

We made some exciting new partners in 2015, and we’re offering discounts to their customers. Whether you’re affiliated with imATHLETE (receive up to 15% off), USA Triathlon (receive 10% off), or USOCR (receive free Grow Plan upgrades), we’re thrilled to have you on board!

We look forward to continuing to support you and your volunteers in 2016. As 2015 comes to an end, we propose a toast to our customers, followers, and friends for being loyal and all around fantastic. Cheers to you, and to the New Year!
