What is a Service Enterprise?
A Service Enterprise is an organization that leverages volunteers and their skills to successfully deliver its mission. This means volunteerism is deeply integrated in the strategic plan, organizational infrastructure, and culture of the organization.
A Service Enterprise is an organization that strategically leverages volunteers to achieve operational efficiency and greater social impact. Service Enterprises are among the top 11 percent of nonprofits in the country in volunteer management and organizational performance. Research conducted by TCC Group and Deloitte shows that nonprofits operating as a Service Enterprise are as effective as peers but at almost half the median budget, and they are significantly more adaptable, sustainable and scalable. Become a leader in capacity building and engagement by becoming a certified Service Enterprise or Service Enterprise Hub.
