Jasmine here-Community Manager with monday for nonprofits! I am excited to share that our team will be releasing bi-weekly articles here on the community forum to help guide you through some of the most inquired parts of the for nonprofits experience!

Today’s article will be about accessing the “Volunteer management template.”

What is the “Volunteers management template?”

This is a solution for our monday for nonprofits us ers to help with all of your volunteering management needs! Recruit volunteers, assign them tasks, and manage their progress in your nonprofit organization all within This article is a step-by-step breakdown of how you can download and use the template.

:rotating_light:Note: You will need admin controls to your account to access this template! Don’t have access to a monday admin account? You will need to request admin status from the admin on the monday account OR use the admin account to add this template!

Let’s get into it and talk through how to access this amazing template:

  1. You will begin by clicking THIS LINK which will take you to the installation page for the template.

  1. On this page, you’ll be asked where you would like this application to live (all workspaces or specific workspaces) and given the option to install the “Volunteer management template” into your app. Select the appropriate workspace and then click “Install”.

  2. You will be redirected to the “Installed Apps” section on monday where you will see the “Volunteer management template” now lives.
