Volunteering in America makes a difference. Volunteers contribute $4.4 billion in service to North Carolina, yet our state ranks low nationally for number of volunteers and hours spent. The Arts and Economic Prosperity study is surveying arts and humanities groups to document more volunteer contributions in 2010. Complete your organization survey here: http://www.ncarts.org/AFTA
Overall, 1,705,024 N.C. residents volunteered 205 million hours of service through or for a nonprofit or community organization in 2010, according to the Corporation for National and Community Service. See http://www.volunteeringinamerica.gov/NC for more information.
