By volunteering, individuals can make an important and valuable contribution. In today's economy, where governments are running huge deficits, and many worthwhile projects are being put "on hold" or eliminated completely, especially by local and state governments, charities need volunteers as well as contributions to fulfill their important missions. Individuals can volunteer their time and their own personal labor, to help philanthropies better cope by reducing their expenses. If a philanthropy (or charity) can save money on expenses, it can often "stretch" its funds further into important programing.
Some forms of volunteerism include: helping out with local community cleanups; working with others on local gardens; assisting in the office, etc., at one's house of worship; transporting elderly, etc. to the supermarket or pharmacy; joining the Board of a local philanthropy; "pitching in" wherever needed, etc. All of these efforts reduce local charities overall expenses in times when government grants and other contributions may have been reduced and/ or eliminated.
In difficult economic times, donors need to be selective in their donations. A donor should look at the charity/ philanthropy's financial information, to examine how much actually goes to programming. The higher the
percentage that goes to programming, the more comfortable a prospective donor should and does feel. Some excellent local charities still have high operating costs as a percentage of revenues, and if one feels strongly about one of those organizations, the best way to make others want to donate, is by helping the organization reduce its overhead. That is another area where volunteerism is both necessary and worthwhile!
While economic conditions changed, and schemists like Madoff separated so many from their money, it is more important than ever for people to be as generous as they can afford, because charities need help even more in bad times than good.
