The Lenora Matthews Lifetime Achievement Awards Lenora Mathews is the beloved first executive director of VOLUNTEER Hampton Roads. She played a crucial role in engaging our citizens in Hampton Roads in the community through her role at the organization. In 1975 she began the first awards program to recognize and honor volunteers. 42 years later, we are still hosting this awe-inspiring event in the community to say thank you to the many, many people who selflessly contribute their time and talent to making our community thrive. In 1998, the Lenora Mathews Lifetime Achievement Award was first bestowed. This award has recognized 18 individuals in our community that have used their influence, their dedication, their voice and their time to create a legacy of community service. We are delighted to honor Tom Barton III as our 19th recipient of this prestigious award in 2017. $1Million the value VOLUNTEER Hampton Roads brings to Hampton Roads on an annual basis 29,084 Hours placed through 3,000 hours through Hours VOLUNTEER Hampton Family Volunteer Day Placed Roads Website + 250 hours through + 735 hours through Global military placements Youth Services Day + 250 hours through corporate and community connections Kate Meechan, Executive Director on the Next 60 years VOLUNTEER Hampton Roads began in 1957 as a pilot program of the Junior League to try to match individuals interested in volunteering with different opportunities in the community seeking volunteer help. 60 years later, while so much has changed, we continue to serve our community by thoughtfully leveraging the time and talent of selfless volunteers and deploying them where they are most needed to address the pressing concerns of our community. We have seen much change since we first began our service; technology, the internet and social media has forever altered how we think about both philanthropy and volunteerism. As the world has increased in size, so has the need for the nonprofit sector which has stepped in to take on critical roles no one else is addressing. With that ever growing demand of services, the need for engaged volunteers is larger than ever. VOLUNTEER Hampton Roads is excited to pilot our new VolunTier Vision model for engaging our citizens. Now more than ever, we need: • More people willing to commit a few hours to help out at a nonprofit, • More individuals with finely tuned skillsets willing to share their talents to allow a nonprofit the capacity to grow • Leaders willing to take on the tremendous responsibility to sit on a board and, • A plethora of talent willing to dedicate myriad hours to thought leadership projects to solve our biggest systemic issues. We need YOU. VolunTier Vision will serve as the vehicle to lead us down the path of the next 60 years of volunteerism. YEARS OF SERVICE

Skills-Based Volunteering Skills-Based Volunteerism, while not new in the nonprofit world, is quickly gaining momentum as a win-win proposition for nonprofits and volunteers alike. When nonprofits have specific projects or roles that need to be filled, they create a job description and list of desired skills/experiences. VOLUNTEER Hampton Roads works to find volunteers that precisely fill the needs of nonprofits. This skills-based process also provides volunteers with resume-building, skill-honing, good-mojo opportunities. Case Study: The Hope House Foundation When Hope House Development Coordinator Kailee Wolterstorff stumbled upon a Google Ad Grant that would provide $10,000 each month to help boost their online marketing presence, she thought she found an answer to their marketing needs. Upon winning the grant Kailee found the requirements to monitor AdWords and to update content was taking a large percentage of her time. Kailee had to hire a vendor to do the work but knew this was not a sustainable solution. By reaching out to VOLUNTEER Hampton Roads, Director of VolunTier Vision, Susan Pleasants placed a skills- based volunteer, Greg, who previously provided the service professionally. Greg’s placement with The Hope House Foundation resulted with a boost in event attendance and fundraising efforts for the organization. $5.7M Returned to Service Enterprise – A Novel Hampton Roads though Approach to Nonprofit Service Service Enterprise Service Enterprise is a change management “ The Service Enterprise Process is approach to fundamentally leverage transforming our organization. volunteers in an organization.

Board & Issue-Based Leadership VOLUNTEER Hampton Roads provides high-level board matching and recruitment services to our nonprofit partners. Training on governance is provided through our Board Boot Camp program with other trainings set to roll out this year. Skills, experiences, abilities and passions are carefully weighed to find the right fit for each board position. By taking a very calculated approach to ensuring the right match, the engagement of the board member greatly increases and board turnover decreases.
