A low-cost infusion of energy and expertise for your nonprofit


Nonprofit applications are now open for the 2019-20 High-Impact Volunteer Engagement (HIVE) initiative!

What is HIVE?

HIVE is an intensive cohort-based program that offers staff and volunteer leaders the opportunity to pilot a project that will build your capacity to fulfill your mission. Organizations receive training, coaching, and evaluation to bring their pilot projects from concepts to outcomes.

Who can apply?

Nonprofits serving New Hampshire with a minimum level of current volunteer engagement are eligible. Organizations should also be able to assemble a volunteer engagement team of at least 4 people (with at least 50% volunteers and one staff member responsible for volunteer engagement as part of their role).

What is the time commitment?

Over the course of a year (October 2019-2020), participating organizations will receive an introductory webinar, a full-day training in volunteer engagement, four individualized coaching calls and two group coaching calls facilitated by nationally recognized volunteer engagement experts, evaluation support, and a full-day project reunion. Nonprofit teams will move their projects forward between these milestones.

Does our nonprofit need to have a pilot project in mind to apply?

Your team should have some ideas in mind about how skilled volunteers might help your organization fulfill strategic goals, but a specific project can be developed with guidance from HIVE facilitators later on. 

How much does it cost?

The fee to participate (if selected) is $100 for members of the NH Center for Nonprofits and $300 for not-yet-members.

We're interested in HIVE. What should we do next?

Apply to HIVE by September 30
This Volunteer Generation program is presented in partnership with Volunteer NH, with funding from the Corporation for National and Community Service.
