The Chicago Hyde Park Village is a part of a national movement helping older adults age-in-place. While we have two part-time employees, we mostly rely on our volunteers to fulfill the mission of the organization. Foundations, governmental agencies and other funders see the level of volunteer commitment as representative of organizational capacity.

Do not underestimate the value of your volunteer time! Did you know that every hour of your time that you generously devoted to the Chicago Hyde Park Village in 2019 was worth $27.98? Every year, Independent Sector, a non-profit leadership organization, publishes a "Value of Volunteer Time State and Historical Data" report.
CHPV volunteers logged approximately 2,500 hours of volunteer work in 2019 - the equivalent of $69,950 or 1¼ full-time staff members! If you are interested in digging in more deeply into the Independent Sector data, you can do so HERE.
