"SEI is the way of the future for volunteer engagement. Any nonprofit, no matter what their size, can benefit from this training!"
"I cannot overstate the value of the SEI - from the training to resources - everything helped us achieve results throughout the process. This was a smart investment for our agency."
By Bonnie Andrews, Volunteer Milwaukee Manager
The Nonprofit Center of Milwaukee is a part of the Service Enterprise Initiative (SEI), a national program to help nonprofits increase their mission-based services, expand community outreach and achieve objectives by effectively engaging volunteers. Administered by Volunteer Milwaukee, a service of the Nonprofit Center, this process will prepare organizations to become certified as a Service Enterprise.
A Service Enterprise is an organization that fundamentally leverages volunteers and their skills across all levels of the organization to successfully deliver on their social mission.
The model is based on research demonstrating that SE nonprofits outperform peer organizations on all measures of organizational capacity, allowing them to more effectively address community needs and operate at almost half the median budget.
The research shows:
Despite the benefits of effective volunteer engagement, less than 15% of nonprofits at the time of a study by the TCC Group were operating as Service Enterprises. The SEI can help you achieve these results!
We will lead the process, which includes:
Milwaukee was part of the national pilot in 2013-14, with seven nonprofits successfully completing the process and experiencing increased impact through volunteer engagement. We are now enlisting up to eight nonprofits to participate in the 2014-15 Initiative. These organizations will follow the same comprehensive organizational change model empowering them to more efficiently engage volunteers and address community needs.
