VQ Strategy:
Service Enterprise Certification

A Service Enterprise is an organization that fundamentally leverages volunteers and their skills to successfully deliver on its social mission.

Is your organization a Service Enterprise? Research conducted by TCC Group and Deloitte demonstrates that nonprofits operating as Service Enterprises outperform peer organizations on all measures of organizational capacity, thereby allowing these nonprofits to more effectively address community needs and operate at almost half the median budget. When organizations leverage volunteers and embrace an effective volunteer management model, they are significantly more adaptable, sustainable, and better resourced to do their work, and therefore able to go to scale. With more than 600 organizations across the US already certified as Service Enterprises, the data supporting the benefits of operating as a Service Enterprise continue to grow.
