Database Volunteer Discovery

Most non-profits will develop large contact databases over time and through events. Engaging those individuals long-term and finding those who can help can, however, prove difficult. 

A digital solution simplifies and speeds up the process of identifying who within a contact database is most likely to volunteer. A nonprofit communications engagement plan that leverages personalized automation solutions can ensure that non-profits are able to find every diamond in the rough. 

SimplyCast presents the Database Volunteer Discovery use case, a complete process for leveraging a volunteer database using outreach to identify possible volunteers. 

This solution leverages dynamic interaction detection and scoring to find those who are the most engaged, since those who pay the most attention are often likely to become volunteers in the future. 


The Process 

SimplyCast anticipated the need for non-profit organizations to identify possible volunteers from large pre-existing contact databases. This solution offers a process to do just that, through four primary stages that involve administrators and contacts.  


Administrators – Step 1 

First, an administrator needs to upload or connect the existing contact database with a communication automation platform. 


Administrators – Step 2 

Next, those contacts can be sent regular outreach that keeps them engaged and aware of ongoing activities. 


Contacts – Step 3 

Contacts receive these messages, and those who are engaged will often open and look at those messages, possibly even clicking links, causing a score value to increase behind the scenes. 


Contacts – Step 4 

When a score meets a pre-defined score threshold, the contact is marked as a potential volunteer and sent a message asking them to consider volunteering.
