• Louisiana Volunteerism Study

    2015 Louisiana Volunteerism Study

    Volunteer Louisiana commissioned the LSU Public Policy Lab to conduct a statewide study on volunteerism in Louisiana. Highlights include:

    • 70% of Louisiana residents volunteer informally, and 48% volunteer through formal organizations

    • Most formal volunteering takes place within religious organizations

    • Volunteers are motivated by a desire to help others and improve community conditions

    • Lack of time is the single greatest barrier to volunteering

  • Corporate Volunteering
    Did you know that some corporations provide matching donations for their employees or retirees who volunteer in the community? Many corporations encourage volunteering and service, and even host their own volunteer opportunities for community needs.
