Independent Sector | Research — The Value of Volunteer Time was just released for this fiscal year. These reports help non-profits account for the donations of time given by volunteers. Non-profits are required by law to provide this information as part of accounting regulation.
Their chart of the historical valuation of volunteer time is an interesting comment on the value of labor in this country. Wouldn’t our quality of life be different if all labor was valued at $20.25 per hour?
