Our Work is Fueled by Three Core Beliefs:

Volunteer Engagement isn’t a program.

It’s a mindset. A culture. A core organizational strategy for success.

Volunteers are an unlimited resource for unlimited impact.

The right volunteer engagement strategies can unlock greater impact.

Organizations are never broken.

They just need to be empowered for smarter impact.

Volunteer Engagement Innovation and Impact are in Our Genes.
Our company was founded in 2003 by Jill Friedman Fixler, one of the industry’s leading pioneers in strategic volunteer engagement. In addition to creating the industry’s first model designed to integrate volunteer engagement as a core organizational strategy, we have established ourselves as an innovative thought leader, partner, and resource in helping organizations leverage best practices, cutting-edge tools, and strategies to maximize volunteer talents and skills for smarter impact. Today, as co-owners Beth Steinhorn and Linda Puckett evolve the company from JFFixler Group into VQ Volunteer Strategies, JFFixler Group’s legacy, vision, and innovative approaches for helping organizations maximize the power, passion, and talents of volunteers serves as the foundation for who we’ve become and where we’re going in the future.
