The Value of Your Volunteers Just Went Up

| April 7, 2014

Independent Sector’s annual valuation increases to $22.55 per hour

The estimated value of volunteer time increased by 41 cents in 2013 in a report out just in time for volunteer week. The Independent Sector (IS) figures are widely used as a state-by-state valuation for recognizing volunteer service as well asĀ applications for grants, if the organization would normally have purchased the services.

Arizona ranks just under the national average at $22.52 per hour. Volunteers in D.C. are top the list at $38.69, far above the next runner-up Massachusetts, which comes in at $27.00. The figures are based on Bureau of Labor Statistics for non-management, non-agricultural workers, and reflect the value of actual services performed by the volunteers in service.
