The tool is easy to work with. We used it as a way for trainers to sign up to teach classes and for team members to sign up to attend trainings. The team is quick to respond to our questions. Very helpful!
- Mandy Rumsey, customer since 2018
I love the flexibility of Volunteer Local. It lets me collect specific information on our volunteers that is valuable. I love the way it allows team captains, etc. to contact their teams directly through the site. I've used it for 8 years now and it works for me!
- Katie McFadden May 2019
Customer service was readily available via phone call. We truly appreciated this!
- Customer since 2018
Really love using VolunteerLocal software - it makes running our Festival soooo much easier! Because our Festival is only run every 2 years, it can be difficult to remember what has happened, but Kaylee and her team copy across the prior year and we then spend only very minimal time updating it to fit. Emails are always answered very promptly and it really is a great product! Thanks VolunteerLocal!
- Customer May 2019
Your communication tool is wonderful, I can send a message to all volunteers but we can also allow our captains to communicate with their individual team.
- Customer since 2018
Each year we expand our event. Each year, Volunteer Local makes my job infinitely easier. Each year, I find additional ways to use features I thought I would never need or use, making my job even easier. Support is beyond exemplary! When I forget how to use something, or come up with a need, support always finds a way to help me.
- Sandi Buehner, customer since 2018
As a real user of VolunteerLocal, I can attest that it is user friendly! Even though I only need this once a year for a special event in my town where I coordinate volunteers, it’s simple to get back into it and do my job of keeping track of 70+ volunteer shifts over a 9-day event. Thank you!!
- Customer since 2018
We love Volunteerlocal! The ability for people to self select shifts and copy events and shifts saves so much time!
- Cedar Pridefest, customer since 2018
Easy for volunteers to register, easy for team leaders to communicate/generate reports, great customer service.
- Volunteer Coordinator, customer since 2018
Very well organized and easy to get registered as a volunteer. The website is extremely user friendly!
- Kim Dupuis May 2019
We enjoy using volunteer local. Having access to our info no matter if we are in the office or on the go is huge for us as we travel a lot. We also enjoy how easy it is to use ourselves as well as people signing up. It takes a huge load off of our plates. We enjoy the feature of being able to see how many volunteer spots we have left the most.
- Customer May 2019
We love Volunteer Local! It's simple and easy for us and our volunteers. And the customer service is awesome!
- Chris, customer since 2018
Volunteer Local is a simply a great platform, allowing potential volunteers to view shifts available, register and cancel online at anytime. The support from the team at Volunteer Local is second to none, nothing is too much of a problem for them.
- Customer May 2019
Great customer service! This team is on it, cares, and really happy to help whenever I ask. Bravo!
- Customer May 2019
Your employees were very helpful and there was several to help in the process.
- Tina Wright May 2019
VolunteerLocal's approach is a great fit for our large one-weekend event, and they have provided great service at an affordable price. I don't know how we would manage our volunteer infrastructure without them.
- Pat Thompson, customer since 2018
Simple, organized, what more can we ask for
- Customer since 2018
We have worked with Volunteer Local for the last three years. Their database is extremely user friendly, both for the administrators and the volunteers. Each year they have offered new features that make signing up and communicating with volunteers easier and more efficient. Since most of our volunteers are teens, communication with them is challenging. Volunteer Local has met this challenge through their texting feature and the phone app. And new features are explained to us by their very knowledgeable and patient staff. They operate on the very highest level of customer service.
- Jodi Regan, customer since 2018
The software program is an easy way to communicate with our student volunteers, easy for them to click the link to go to volunteer sign up page...and tabulate all volunteer hours. Love this program. Been using it for several years. Sherri Bottom, Volunteer Coordinator
- Sherri Bottom, customer since 2018
We are very happy with VolunteerLocal.com It makes our volunteer sign-ups so much easier. We are The Sustainable Living Foundation (all volunteers ourselves) and every year we direct The Run for Zimbabwe Orphans and Fair. We are now in our 20th year! We have a lot of categories for volunteers-- mascots, cultural booths and registration for the run etc. It would be crazy to keep all of this on a spread sheet!
- Ellen April 2019
I think what I like most about this program that is if I run into a stumbling block along the way, all that I have to do is pick up the phone for an immediate answer. The service is above an beyond. The program is also very user friendly.
- Nick Schwob April 2019
Working directly with one person, in this case, Lucy, was invaluable.
- Customer since 2018

- Alton Evans, customer since 2018
Staff always patient with my questions and willing to walk me through troublesome applications..

VL did a great job for our event. The staff was always available and helpful if we had any questions. I would recommend them.
- Jim Crist, customer since 2018
I greatly appreciate your kind, personal, and very helpful customer service. No matter my question, I have always received the best help!
- Jackie, customer since 2018
Volunteer Local is always able to adapt to our needs. If a functionality does not currently exist, they will either add it or call you to explain a workaround. We have not yet hit an obstacle that Volunteer Local could not overcome.
- Mark Haiar, customer since 2018
We have more than 1,300 volunteers and over 80 jobs at the Friends School Plant Sale. It’s a huge sale. When we signed up with Volunteer Local in 2014, we were nervous about trusting Volunteer Local with the business of handling our volunteers...our most important asset. We had our own volunteer sign up system and it worked, although we had outgrown it. Well, VL not only handled our volunteer signup process seamlessly, they also listened to our feedback and made modifications and updates to the system to meet our needs. Volunteer Local has become an integral part of our sale. Bravo VL!
- Garth Morrisette March 2019
I love that Volunteer Local helps us manage our volunteers so easily! It's easy to have volunteers sign up themselves, send reminders and communication updates. It also runs reports that help us manage our volunteers.
- Theresa Garcia-Parks, customer since 2018
My volunteers always tell me how easy it is to use the website (integrated with VolunteerLocal). It makes life easy for our volunteer coordinator, and we can maintain communication with all our volunteers as needed. Thanks for a great service!
- Customer since 2018
I enjoy using volunteer local because it does everything I need it to do for the job I’m doing. Also, the customer service is superb. I’ve always gotten a call back right away and they are always professional and informative.
- Anne Kincaid, customer since 2018
The system was easy to use, understand and maneuver through. Your people were available and helpful if assistance was needed. It was easy to run reports to check on volunteer sign-up progress or details for serving. I thought it was wonderful.
- Mellanie Hunt, customer since 2018
VolunteerLocal basics are easy to use and affordable for small organizations. Staff is friendly and responsive to questions and concerns. The web-based system is very helpful for organizations like ours that have multiple remote volunteers.
- Wendy Digiorno, customer since 2018
It has been so important for us to find a way for potential volunteers to easily sign-up for our opportunities. Volunteer Local allows them to sign-up day or night, and receiving an immediate confirmation helps make them feel comfortable about their position. And for us at Living History Farms it is so much easier to sign up and keep track of the volunteers.
- Jan Milroy, customer since 2018
Exceptional customer service! I really appreciate that in the fast-paced world of event planning that I can get a question quickly and thoroughly answered about the functionality of the VolunteerLocal site. I have used VolunteerLocal to recruit and organize volunteers for 4 very different clients and have been able to tweak it to very different needs. - Lisa Thompson, customer since 2018

- Chelcie Spencer, customer since 2018
volunteer local helps us publicize and manage over 200 volunteers for a massive two-day outdoor event in the park. We can specify different job descriptions and shifts, and year-to-year we can roll over the plan as it does not change much. This is a huge improvement over any other sign up program we have used.
- Kimberly Towne, customer since 2018
Great user friendly platform. Excellent administrative responses. Affordable. Thank you - Patricia Dalton, customer since 2018
- Patricia Dalton, customer since 2018
I cannot say enough about how amazing VolunteerLocal is to work with.

- Karissa, customer since 2018
One of my favorite things about VolunteerLocal is how easy it is to use. It takes very little time to set up events and the check in process for volunteers is effortless. Another great thing is the responsiveness of the VolunteerLocal team. Every time we have ever had any questions, you have responded almost immediately! - Andrea Rocha, February 2019

You are responsive, informative, friendly, and help me resolve me issues. Thank you!

VolunteerLocal is a great way to make your volunteer needs and positions public and known to those who otherwise wouldn't be aware of the need.
- Customer January 2019
VolunteerLocal's customer service is always wonderful. Everyone works hard to make sure we have exactly what we need or helps us figure out a solution if we don't. From running reports to helping with any sign-up issues, VolunteerLocal has been a great option for us.
- Kim, customer since 2018
I thoroughly enjoy working with Volunteer Local. I especially appreciate the personal and quick customer service. It's comforting to know that if there's a feature I wish was a part of the program, they will take the time to look into making it happen.

Ease of use by volunteer and agency.

Love Volunteer Local. Am a volunteer for a church. We started using Volunteer Local in 2014 and have used and expanded subscription over those years.

It is definitely a much more convenient way to communicate with my volunteers and know when they sign up.
- Carolyn Mather, customer since 2018
So I already brought a new festival on board! Feedback: I've worked for a number of festivals of various sizes, and have used a range of sign-up systems. I love Volunteer Local--It's easy to use for self sign-ups, shift changes, team leader communications, reports, etc. Good customer service. Love the extra available features of hidden shifts and password protected areas. Reasonably priced for what you get!
- Marcia Woodward, customer since 2018
I love that you are so quick to respond to issues or questions.
- Trevor January 2019
Volunteer Local is very functional and user-friendly! It is easy to set up and super simple for our volunteers to register. I started out with the free basic version for one event and switched over to the subscription for all of our large events. Staff is quick to respond to issues and always willing to assist. I would definitely recommend Volunteer Local to anyone looking to update their volunteer registration process!
- Sophia Freni, customer since 2018
We love that it's so easy to use.
- Julie Donnelly, customer since 2018
Volunteer Local is set up to make volunteer recruitment, tracking and communication super easy. I work with many NPO groups that are producing events and when they use Volunteer Local it sets them up for a success. Volunteer Local is a great tool for maximizing volunteer resources.
- Customer since 2018
My main specific is your customer service. I have a question and you are so quick to answer and your answers are relevant and basic so I can move forward. The non-specific is the program is easy to use and it is easy for the volunteers to sign up. You have made my job so much easier. Thank you!
- Crystal Wolfe Goehring, customer since 2018
I feel as though you were available to answer questions and make changes to suit our needs!

We have been using Volunteer Local for 3 years now. It is a top-notch tool for managing volunteers! We have 2,900 volunteers (502 jobs, 706 shifts) over a 3-day period to manage from individuals to groups. I can see with two clicks a status on all of those. I can send communication to all of them at once or individual. Volunteer Local meets all of our needs and they are constantly making improvements to make it even better. Their support is fantastic! They listen to feedback and make improvements based on the feedback. Absolutely love VL and highly recommend it! Kim Scott, Volunteer Coordinator Christie Clinic Illinois Marathon

- Customer December 2018
Quick customer service, easy to use, affordable, nice extra features such as birthday greetings, simple event day check-in
- Andrea, customer since 2018
The site is easy to use. I love the volunteer communication section so I don't have to type everyone's email into my regular email to send additional information. Thanks for all the updates. It has been a huge time saver for us to use this system instead of requesting volunteers to sign up through email.
- Julie Gage, customer since 2018
VolunteerLocal continues to make improvements and add new features to their product. They are also very responsive to my questions.
- James, customer since 2018

- Zeke Warzeka, customer since 2018
great tool fr communicating with volunteers and allows volunteers to manage their accounts
- Customer since 2018
I did not have a hands on role using the platform, but our volunteer coordination team was pleased with the workflow. Id love to setup a time for one of our volunteer coordinators and myself to speak with a volunteer local staff member to really refine which addons are necessary and how to best use the platform as our event and volunteer base grows.
- Customer since 2018
Gosh, there are many things we like about your product. We like it because: -It allows for multiple administrators -It allows for lots of customization -It's easy to copy a listing which is perfect for us Additionally, the customer service is excellent. When we've had questions, we've always received prompt responses.
- Customer since 2018

- Kevin McNulty, customer since 2018
VolunteerLocal streamlined our process in more ways than I can express. We will continue to use this service year over year!
- Customer since 2018
VolunteerLocal is a great way to direct volunteers to one place to sign up and it enables us to keep track of and communicate with our volunteers easily. The fact that we can have more than one person as an administrator makes it possible for us to have a volunteer coordinator for events too! I'm glad we found this easy to use tool!
- Customer December 2018
VL's online volunteer system works perfectly for our annual summer event, NL Blues & BBQ! We needed a flexible system that worked seamlessly on both the volunteer end, as well as our organizations end for reporting, tracking of t-shirts info, groups, etc. Their help, flexibility in making the system fit our needs, and customer service has been fantastic and well worth the money! I foresee using VL for all of our current and future community events!
- Katie Colony, customer since 2018
Love the ability to communicate with volunteers. Good reports. Easy to use. Great customer service / help when needed!
- Rachel December 2018
Ease of use for admin and volunteers, capabilities of software, and good customer service!
- Patti Danner, customer since 2018
I am a seasonal employee for the Art Festival so I only use Volunteer Local each year I return to my job as Volunteer Coordinator. I am particularly impressed with the customer service and endless patience of the Volunteer Local staff who answer all my "dumb" questions to help me remember what I've forgotten and understand what is new. I feel like they really care. Great job Kaylee in creating a staff who takes care of the customers!
- Marcia Custer, customer since 2018
Great system.
- Peter Hosking November 2018
We love Volunteerlocal! This service has allowed us to stay in constant contact with our volunteers whether it be a Happy Birthday message or any updates made to their shifts. We have been utilizing this service to also sign up groups to be able to track the number of hours each group has worked. The staff has been super helpful and willing to assist with whatever we need, including listening to our inputs about what might work best for our events. Volunteerlocal is the ideal service for any size event and it has become a vital part of the National Cherry Festival!
- Alexis Bremer November 2018
The system was easy to use and the customer service was fast at resolving issues.

Volunteer Local has been a great partner of USA Triathlon for the past 3 years, and their platform has allowed us great flexibility with our volunteer recruitment, as well as being able to market to certain regions of the US.
- Customer since 2018
System flexibility with regard to creating/hiding/password-protecting at the job or shift level. Also lots of options when creating questions for volunteers, especially the use of conditional logic.
- Volunteer Coordinator November 2018
Easy to use system
- Beth, customer since 2018
I really don’t know how we would manage our 1,300 volunteers without VolunteerLocal —- or rather, I DO know because I used to try to help do it in the “olden days.” What a pain that was! I think my favorite part of VL is being able to see each volunteer’s history. Bravo, VolunteerLocal!
- Nancy Scherer, customer since 2018
I like the dashboard so that I can easily see how many of the volunteer positions have been filled. I like being able to download key information about my volunteers into a spreadsheet. I download just the details that I need, such as email address and phone number.
- Customer since 2018
VolunteerLocal is so flexible and allows me to include details specific to each job or shift or location. I especially love how it allows me or a sub-user to contact volunteers by date, job, shift, etc. to communicate any details or reminders to them.
- Katie McFadden November 2018
Easy to use platform; helps to organize and assign volunteers to specific roles when planning events; customizable job descriptions are a bonus; easy to communicate with large groups of volunteers or specific volunteer roles.
- Elizabeth Harfman, customer since 2018
We liked that we were able to customize the program to our needs for our event. Everyone we called to help us was friendly and helpful!
- Customer since 2018
Your customer service is much appreciated. You are open to hear what our specific needs are and work to make it possible. If we have concerns, you listen and try to correct it as quickly as possible.

- Customer since 2018
We've been using Volunteer Local for the last three years on our music festivals. It's been incredibly helpful in registering, scheduling, communicating, and overall organizing of volunteers for our events. We recommend Volunteer Local to any organizer in need of a volunteer organizing solution.
- Gabe November 2018
I started using VolunteerLocal while organizing an event that required the support of about 200 volunteers. Before I started using VolunteerLocal, I received a great tutorial via telephone from Lucy. I love using it! Straight forward, easy to use and great support!!
- Karen O'How October 2018
I love the ability to reach out one-on-one to make suggestions and see those put in place!
- Customer since 2018
the login process remains the same as events change; userid and password are consistent, don't change
- Customer since 2018
Great prices easy access to data easy onboarding for new volunteers.
- Customer since 2018
That platform is super easy to use and communicating with those who have signed up is very user friendly. We (Crossroads Church) have a platform that we use most of the times but in situations where we have folks volunteering who don't attend our church (and therefore don't have an account with our platform) Volunteer Local is by far the easiest and most efficient platform we have used.
- Todd Bretz, customer since 2018
The service you provide is excellent. We use it to set up volunteer opportunities that support non-profit organizations in the DFW area. The service is easy for our volunteers to use. It is also easy to edit our events as changes occur once you know how. The reports help us put info into an Excel spreadsheet for record tracking.
- Customer since 2018
The system was easy to us and allowed me to move volunteers where needed.
- Navy-Air Half Marathon, customer since 2016
I love how user friendly it is, and the fact that any time we have had problems you guys have been helpful and quick in your response time.
- Customer since 2018
The support, ease of use, variety of options, and times saving, makes Volunteer Local my favorite resource.
- Sandi Buehner, customer since 2018
its fast and easy to read and figure out thanks
- Customer since 2018
We love the ability to direct people to one sign up location and be able to email out from same system. It makes organizing our annual event with more than 100 volunteers so much easier!
- Cedar Pridefest, customer since 2018
I recommend this service whenever I can. It's very helpful when collecting volunteers and communicating instructions and details. We use the program for more than just events - we sign up staff members and volunteers for training too!
- Tara Pregnolato, customer since 2018
I love how I can use my own verbage to explain different volunteer positions. I appreciate being able to check and see how many places have been taken versus how many are left. This helps in the final push for volunteers advertising exactly which positions we need. Everything is in one place. We use volunteer local for multiple events we host.
- Customer November 2018
I have already recommended to several festivals. Easy to use, reasonable prices, and great customer service.
- Customer since 2018
Volunteer Local is easy for both event organizers and volunteers alike. Their team is responsive and we have been a happy customer for many years!

Easy to use, with all the features that we needed
- Startup San Diego, customer since 2018
Easy to use once set up and then the ability to copy the listing to use for another event.
- Customer November 2018
Keeping track of volunteers is easy and gathering new volunteers is just as simple.
- Customer since 2018
We love that we can set up simple OR complicated sign ups for events. The best part is not having to see advertising on our pages. We are a church, so we worry about inappropriate ads and with VolunteerLocal, those worries don't exist. Thank you!
- Joan Seibenick, customer since 2018
Volunteer Local gives the volunteers control over when and where they would like to volunteer. They are able to add friends which is great and if something comes up they can also cancel their shift. All of this greatly reduces the amount of time my team spends on the phone and talking to potential volunteers. I also love the email feature and birthday notification.
- Customer October 2018
I am so impressed by the quick responseS to all my questions, the kindness and efficient problem solving is so helpful. Great team and super friendly, too. Wouldn't work with anybody else. Honest!
- Sandy Brintnall October 2018
I like being able to see the report section and easily knowing the percentage of volunteers for each shift/position - makes it super easy to see numbers and keep track of things. I've also become much more efficient in creating the actual registration page due to you all keeping it simple and easy! I enjoy this platform :)
- Colton Spresser October 2018
It's easy to find the right fit when looking for a place to volunteer
- Kelly Ruesing, customer since 2018
VolunteerLocal has been a great tool for us for several years now. It has everything I need and fabulous customer service! Your tweaks and updates from year to year have been really useful. Thank you!
- Customer since 2018
We have had nothing but a positive experience with Volunteer Local (VL), and our volunteers always tell me how easy it is to use! We did quite a bit of research on similar software applications, and chose VL because there's less management time required for scheduling volunteers because they do that on their own. It's so easy to handle canceling, rescheduling, and helping volunteers and allows our site managers to check in volunteers and track volunteer hours -- so many wonderful options that this program does that used to be done by hand. Before VL, our Volunteer Coordinator relied on redundant emails, phone calls & spreadsheets to organize volunteers for The Las Vegas Valley Theatre Awards. We signed up for the free version of VL and quickly and easily began creating jobs and shifts. The set up was very user friendly. The greatest challenge was training volunteers to use the online sign up but, once over that learning curve, communication with volunteers has been clearer, job descriptions has helped them know what to expect, and confirmation emails has given them their schedules without additional administrative work!
- Ralph Stalter October 2018
Love your software, your support and your quick response to helping solve our challenges when they arise and we need help figuring something out!!
- Customer since 2017
VolunteerLocal's infrastructure is a great match for our event's needs, and at those times (which always happen in reality) when it's not quite as good a fit, the VolunteerLocal team is great at working with us to make it fit. VolunteerLocal has transformed our event's volunteer-tracking to the point where we worry about it at least 50% less than we used to.
- Pat Thompson, customer since 2018
The convenience for us and our volunteers to sign up. Our volunteer program was recently highlighted at our conference in DesMoines. Part of the presentation was that we used your program and how much we like it.
- Jeff Finke October 2018
We love working with Volunteerlocal. Their system perfectly fits our needs, is easy to use and communicate with our volunteers. Set up is quick and great customer service when we do have questions. We have already signed onto Volunteerlocal for 2019 and look forward to continuing to partner! Beth Salinger Hospital Hill Run
- Beth Salinger, customer since 2018
I thought the program was very simple to use. I did not set up anything but I used the program to look at volunteer sign-ups. It was used for a very large volunteer operation – the Illinois marathon in Champaign Illinois
- Customer since 2018
I don't know how you would organize a volunteer event without VolunteerLocal. Made it easy to keep track of all shifts and volunteers.
- Karen Milner October 2018
Your website is easy to navigate and I have received many Volunteers due to Volunteerlocal.
- Tammy Roberts, customer since 2018
the team at Volunteer Local have always been very responsive to our requests and feedback and were even able to build some extra functionality that we needed into the platform that helped make our event more manageable.
- Customer October 2018
Volunteerlocal was PERFECT for our needs, and we will for sure be using it again. I've also recced it to other nonprofit and small infrastructure events to use, as something super easy to pick up, easy for volunteers to sign up and use, and doesn't require a full-time volunteer manager.
- Heather Tucker, customer since 2018
I absolutely love VolunteerLocal. So easy to use, both as an administrator and for our volunteers. The only thing I would like to see added is either an app for administrators or a mobile optimized website. I often refer to VolunteerLocal during meetings and on the go and it would be nice to have the information easier to access on a smaller screen.
- Katie Riley, customer since 2018
The website is very user friendly. As well whenever we ask for help you are so polite and friendly and very helpful with any issues. Volunteer Local has completely altered the way our jobs function, by creating a space for our volunteers to coordinate themselves. We love Volunteer Local.
- Customer October 2018
Your site is very user friendly. Your phone support has been excellent. All of this is extremely important to me running a 3 day event with 4 events within the 3 days with over 400 volunteers. Thank you
- Gillian Larson, customer since 2018
A great product that is flexible and meets our needs well. Very responsive and supportive customer service.
- Customer since 2018
Thanks for being responsive for requests for help and for helping me think through the complexities of eight events statewide over a week-long period. Ours is one of the only Homeless Youth Counts that occurs statewide and Volunteer Local is helping us get better at organizing and executing such a big event.
- Carl Asikainen October 2018
We get glowing reviews from our Volunteer Coordinator that works with the VolunteerLocal software. In turn, we shared your software with all the producers from around the globe attending the World Fringe Congress in Scotland last summer.
- Customer since 2018
Very easy to set up shifts for our event and contact the volunteers
- Customer since 2018
I love working with Volunteerlocal! The staff and support are the best! The team is very knowledgeable about their platform and always accommodating to our festival's needs.
- SunFest, customer since 2018
Volunteerlocal is understandable and easy to use. It is a very efficient way to coordinate volunteering!
- Customer since 2018
We always get great support needed to make our hydrastation work.
- Doug Hanner, customer since 2018
VolunteerLocal offers not only a great service, but more importantly amazing support for their users. Customer service has gone far beyond what we would have expected or hoped for to help us out and ensure a successful outcome.
- Customer since 2018
easy user friendly program. Easy for us to work on the back end and easy for our volunteers to navigate.
- Customer since 2018
The software is easy to use and was very effective at coordinating nearly 200 volunteers in a four day event with six thousand attendees. Without VolunteerLocal I might have managed to coordinate all those schedules, but it would have been much harder and probably would not have been done as well.
- Rich October 2018
The software was super helpful for our event's volunteer needs. We were able to coordinate a large amount of people with ease. Your support team is amazing. Every person I worked with from the demo to the day-to-day support was super personable and friendly. I have already recommended VolunteerLocal to other volunteer coordinators I know.
- Marielle Terbio, customer since 2018
We appreciate Volunteerlocal quality and timely customer service support that compliments the reliable system we have trust in registering and communicating with our thousands of volunteers who use the system every year.
- Customer October 2018
Your signup system is easy to use and as a coordinator I feel comfortable having my 'recruits' do their own signups. (I previously did it for them) Plus being made aware of other functions that are available, so that we may volunteer is a big plus. The work we do as volunteers is far outweighed by the fun and the sense of helping those who participate in the event.
- Customer since 2018
Once we enlisted VolunteerLocal to come on board, it made a world of difference. Our foundation, The Sustainable Living Foundation, puts on the Annual Run for Zimbabwe Orphans and Fair here in Mountain View California each spring. Juggling pieces of paper, spread sheets and trying to remember who signed up for which job was crazy! We have Prep jobs that go throughout the year. Then, there are jobs on race day such as timers, course guides or volunteers at the various booths oft the Zimbabwe Fair. We simply post the VolunteerLocal link on our web site-- www.ZimbabweParaguay.net -- and people can choose whatever jobs they want. It's very easy for both the volunteers and us!
- Ellen October 2018
Easy to access
- Randy Bates, customer since 2018
Use is for volunteers for our city festivals. Easy to use. Working on improving the the text reminders for volunteers and scheduling when they go out before shifts.
- Don Cheek, customer since 2018
I really appreciate your availability access and assistance with working through minor glitches and/or changes that need to be made. The format for volunteers signing up us quick, clearand easy to use. From the administers side, I like the wide range of options to search, report, change, etc the volunteer lists. One more thing, Lucy is an angel and so fun to work with on our conference calls. Kudos to her for her wisdom and help.
- Marilyn Boschetto, customer since 2018
This is one of the best programs that I have worked with in recent years. I have used it twice for our Conventions and it has proved to be one of our best tools for gathering information on our Volunteers location(s) to see if we have the locations covered adequately. Support is always available and extremely helpful.
- Nick Schwob October 2018
Ease of access and contracting volunteers thru your system.
- Adrian Berkeley, customer since 2018
It is an easy way to managing and communicating to volunteers, as well as summarizing their particulars (e.g. volunteer info, shirt sizes required, etc.). In terms of improvement, it would be great if there was a feature to easily export email addresses into outlook, g-mail, etc. instead of using the website's e-mail feature.
- Customer October 2018
Volunteerlocal makes it so easy for anyone to sign up, and for me to keep track of everyone! Having nearly 200 used to make me cringe, but being able to access any information or send everyone a message with the click of a button certainly lifts a weight off my shoulders.
- Customer since 2016
Great tool for signing up, assigning, tracking and communicating with volunteers, including giving specific coordinators an internal communications tool to work with just their own area volunteers within the system. Best volunteer organizational and ease-of-use use tool I've seen. Plus the Vol. Local staff support was always extremely helpful (and quick) in their replies to questions or challenges we may have had. Great Volunteer organizational platform!
- Alamo Hollrah September 2018
Product is easy to use. Staff is very knowlegeble to helping to solve issues.
- Customer September 2018
One again, your customer support via Lucy Williams was outstanding. She helped us do the setup for the our 2019 event, which will be the 20th annual.
- Bill Clark September 2018
Single purpose software solution that: ~ is simple to use, yet provides good user flexibility ~ based on the key features of self-registration and self-scheduling ~ a very reasonable entry level price point ~ excellent service ~ our volunteers love to use!
- Scott Wilson September 2018
Customer service!
- Wendy Wanner September 2018
Very easy to use; support staff is quick and happy to help; can use multiple "tools" even if choosing to use the free event.
- Lisa Beuning September 2018
This program is so easy to use for me as an event organizer, and we constantly get comments from volunteers on how easy it is to sign up! Whenever we need a question answered, Volunteer Local is there within minutes to answer it.
- Kim Thomson September 2018
VolunteerLocal is the best service we've found to help us organize volunteers. It's user friendly for volunteers and our staff and saves us lots of time in keeping things organized.
- DMSC Volunteer September 2018
I really like that we have the option to sign up for one event as we only have one event each year that is large enough to require volunteer registration on this scale. Allowing people to sign up for their own shifts makes the volunteer experience more pleasant and it does all the work for me - saving me a ton of time! I like that I can customize my questions, that I can easily move volunteers around manually if needed and choose not to email an individual every time a change is made. I also like that the information is easily exportable to excel. My first year managing our event, I tired to coordinate ~100 volunteers, their availability, and the schedules by hand. It took *so much time* and many volunteers were unhappy with the shifts as assigned. I knew there had to be a better way. Then I found VolunteerLocal and the experience for me and my volunteers has been so much better. Thank you!!
- Customer September 2018
You make the important work of volunteering easier to organize and manage. I'm grateful for what volunteer local provides to the community.
- Ciji September 2018
Loved that you contacted the volunteers with a reminder - one more thing I didn't have to do.
- Peg Hippen September 2018
The program is easy to set up and easy for volunteers to use.
- Susan September 2018
Our non-profit agency only holds a couple events per year, so great to have a free option for volunteer management that includes reporting and the ability to customize things exactly as we need. We have been very happy with the service and ease of use. It's got everything we need!
- Customer September 2018
Volunteering keeps you connected and feeling useful!!!
- Customer since 2018
Coordinating Volunteers can be stressful but Volunteer Local made the process so much easier with scheduling and data retrieval.
- Kali Serna, customer since 2018
Personable service (although sometimes it takes time for a response). Especially nice to feel you actually know me, my organization, my specific quirks. I love all the things the VL program can do to stream-line my job. This year my working hours dereased while my volunteer roster increased!
- Marcey Terrien, customer since 2018
I like the ease of setting up our Online Volunteer Sign-up, the wonderfully kind and helpful people who trained and assisted me with setting it up. I love how I am able to track the progress of filling our volunteer shifts, running reports, and being able to make revisions on the fly. Thank YOU very much!
- Jackie, customer since 2018
Volunteer Local provides spot-on music festival volunteer planning tools that greatly enhance the part of the industry that goes largely unnoticed. At Mile of Music, we appreciate everything that Volunteer Local does for the industry and for always being available with answers and feedback to any and all questions we have.
- Ian Thomson, customer since 2018
Using VolunteerLocal for the past four years has made such a difference. It's given volunteers the ability to make changes to their schedule on their own along with freeing up time for me which formerly was spent spending far too much time with scheduling volunteer hours. We are very happy using VolunteerLocal.
- Jane Anfang, customer since 2018
I appreciate that the platform is easy to use. Lucy is always quick to respond if we need support.
- Cindy Harris, customer since 2018
The one on one communication and fast resolve of our questions and needs is wonderful. Feels like we all have been friends for years, I enjoy that personal touch. Melissa
- P3R Volunteers, customer since 2018
Excellent customer service. Almost always responding same day to questions we have and being open to setting up meetings to talk through any road blocks we come across. We have yet to experience an issue that the Volunteer Local Team has not been able to solve.
- Mark Haiar, customer since 2018
Easy to use, great for getting volunteers to sign up and pick the jobs they would like at the time they want. It would be nice to have the features included that are in the other plans. Price for the additional features a relatively small single event cost prohibitive.
- Jim Godbout, customer since 2018
I called the help number A LOT!!!! Your team was always prompt at getting back to me and never made me feel like an idiot, even though it's how I felt. It never took very long to solve the problem I was having and I learned how to resolve issues I was having by speaking with you.
- Anne Kincaid, customer since 2018
The setup of of different events is very helpful. The UI is also easy to navigate.
- Keith Partridge, customer since 2018
I found Volunteer Local easy to use, especially when we had numerous names and sometimes changes. The ability to print out the section needed was helpful
- Customer since 2018
Volunteer Local meets our need for a system to manage almost 1000 volunteers at a 3-day event, with minimal effort. The ability to define unlimited jobs and shifts for the event, limit the number of people who can sign up for each, and have everyone sign up online makes the process almost seamless. The ability to communicate with specific groups of volunteers is also very helpful. We haven't found any other system that meets our needs so effectively.
- Customer since 2018
Using volunteerlocal for the MGA 5k in 2018 was the best decision I could have ever made! It made the process easy and the volunteers had less issues using the system.
- Stephanie Hubers, customer since 2018
While VolunteerLocal is easy to use, I could always call Lucy or Kaylee for support- and I appreciate the time they always took with me!
- Syta Staff, customer since 2018
I LOVE Volunteer Local! They have the best customer service! Their staff goes above and beyond to make sure you are happy.
- Goal Foundation, customer since 2018
You guys have been great to deal with both on a business development level and just general customer service. We've truly enjoyed our relationship with the VolunteerLocal team.
- James Shinault, customer since 2018
It was so easy to operate and understand. Info I needed was easy to get. Easy to run reports to get specific info. Loved it!
- Mellanie Hunt, customer since 2018
The ability to create our own questions easily and to choose what we want to download into reports is great! Wish we could override situations where a volunteer wants to shifts that overlap because often that will work.
- Customer since 2018
VolunteerLocal has changed the way that we recruit students for our volunteer events. It is simple to use for us as administrators and extremely easy for students to use. It makes all of our lives easier!
- Customer since 2018
There are many options and opportunities being presented by volunteerlocal that I was not aware of...that's a plus...I have told many friends who also enjoy volunteering about volunteerlocal...
- Customer since 2018
VolunteerLocal has been an invaluable service for YESS and our annual special event, the YESS Duck Derby. The site is incredibly easy to use and the communication features make it easy to share shift updates and last-minute details to volunteers all in one place. I highly recommend VolunteerLocal for anyone managing an event that utilizes volunteers.
- Jana Daisy, customer since 2018
Timely communication, helpful answers, and great features offered in your product. We continue to be very happy with VolunteerLocal in our second year now.

- Customer since 2018
Volunteer local is very user friendly and the perfect volunteer management tool for one-time events. Customer service has always been responsive, timely and friendly as well!
- Renee Sedlacek, customer since 2018
The system is SUPER user friendly on both the front and back end. Customer service/support is responsive and quick to fix issues, not that we've had many to speak of. Highly recommend VolunteerLocal for any organization that does a lot of events.
- Customer since 2018
Kaylee Williams was very helpful when I had questions about the set up and management of our Volunteer Local event. She was always very professional and friendly.
- Customer since 2018
They system gives us everything we ask for in reports and if flexible enough to carry out unique ways of communicating and registering volunteers.
- Amedeo Rossi, customer since 2018
The Des Moines Music Coalition loves VolunteerLocal! Very easy to navigate and a great, one-stop source for all of our volunteer organizational needs.
- Lindsay Keast, customer since 2018
I loved working directly with volunteer local to solve my logistical issues. It felt like I had an extra team member!
- Reynaldo Vargas, customer since 2018
Volunteer Local is very user friendly. It's easy to maneuver. I also appreciate that I always receive prompt responses from Lucy when I have questions about the program
- Customer since 2018
Your website and interface are easy to navigate. The ability to access archived group emails is also very helpful. The work you all do is greatly appreciated.
- Customer since 2018
We LOVE how easy to use your platform is for both us and the volunteers! I actually recommended it to my friend who does Xpand Fest here in Asheville. :-) Not only is it easy to use but it's versatile and the customer support is AMAZING!!
- Chelcie Spencer, customer since 2018
VolunteerLocal made it really easy to manage over 120 volunteer shifts for the annual Tour de Fat, and helped what has a potential to be a really crazy day a lot less crazy. Once set up, the work was done, and the format was very easy, informative, and beneficial to the volunteers. We would definitely use it again, and already have recommended it to others.
- Jimmy Hallyburton, Executive Director, the Boise Bicycle Project
