It's a good idea to ask people who donate time to your nonprofit organization to report the time that they spend working on your behalf on volunteer time sheets. This is a good way to keep up with the activities of your volunteers for the purposes of expressing appreciation and recognizing those who make outstanding contributions. This information can also be beneficial for complying with reporting requirements and for future fundraising efforts.
