Nonprofit Partnership Program

About the Chamblee Nonprofit Program

Our nonprofits conduct critical work within our community, but too often organizations struggle to find and retain funding, support, volunteers and awareness. Building upon the idea that there is strength in numbers, the City of Chamblee has established the Nonprofit Partnership Program.

The Chamblee Nonprofit Partnership Program is designed to strengthen, promote and connect Chamblee nonprofits by encouraging collaboration, enhancing organizational visibility and supporting organizational development and capacity-building.

Let's Talk About... Volunteer Recruitment, Development, and Retention

We all know volunteers are vital to the mission of nonprofit organizations. Organizations of all shapes and sizes rely on volunteers to turn their missions into concrete action. No matter the cause being pursued, volunteers provide on-the-ground support needed to bring the vision to fruition. 

During this session of Let's Talk About... we'll be discussing how to connect with and inspire the right people to join your team of volunteers.

Come share and learn from fellow nonprofit organizations about best practices for volunteer recruitment, development, and retention.

We'll discuss guiding practices for volunteers such as:
- Best practices for volunteer recruitment
- Internal and external strategies to reach diverse groups of volunteers
