VISTA Member Develops Tools to Steward Volunteers Well

Sarah Crain 4Did you know that databases have been helping organizations store, retrieve, and analyze data since the 1960s! Here at Woman to Woman there was a great need to obtain a database that would store volunteer information. Sarah was asked to use her logistics mind to make a plan to for a master volunteer database that would hugely benefit the organization as a whole. She was able to transfer over 100 physical files into this new database with the help of fellow VISTAs. This database will change how Woman to Woman files volunteer information and how to efficiently keep files updated. It will be used to update Constant Contact and Sales Force, which are two applications that help communicate to volunteers and donors about sales, work schedules, and important information. The Volunteer Coordinator will also be able to steward volunteers well by ensuring they are serving in the interests of their choice. The database will be a strong foundation for the organization to build upon for any future needs.
