Volunteer fundraisers can help you grow the dollars and donors of your annual fund, but logistically, they can be challenging to manage. Many institutions have difficulty keeping their communications timely, and monitoring the progress of hundreds, or even thousands, of volunteers is challenging. If your annual fund staff rely on outdated tools like spreadsheets and email lists, it can lead to an underperforming volunteer program, and even make you question whether your program is worth the effort.
Class Agent is designed to automate a number of these processes and aid educational institutions to better manage and more efficiently communicate with volunteers. With Class Agent, you can easily create assignments and track volunteers’ progress on their tasks. Your volunteers will have access to mobile and web tools that make it easy and convenient for them to report their progress and remain engaged.
The Class Agent Fundraising Solution Provides:
- An online management dashboard that lets staff make assignments, communicate with volunteers and monitor their progress. Within this portal, managers can assign prospects to each volunteer based on commonalities such as graduation year, major, activities, etc. Your staff can also track results — either by individual volunteer, groups of volunteers or for the overall volunteer campaign.
- A web portal for volunteers to see their assignments and get the information they need to make the “asks” of their peers. The portal provides prioritized prospect lists with commonalities and contact information, solicitation scripts, and the ability for volunteers to record and track the results of their outreach. University managers can view these results from their portal, and also export the data if needed.
