VolunteerToday.com ~~ The Electronic Gazette for Volunteerism
Beginning with the May issue of Volunteer Today, those who manage volunteer programs for cities, states, the federal government, the military, commissions or districts will find special help available. The Government page introduced three new writers and a returnee to the pages of Volunteer Today.
Each month a new writer, at a different level of government, offers hints, tips, ideas, and comments on working with volunteers at that level of government. All four levels of government stay accessible, not being move to Archives for four months, so there is always something available that is fresh and informative for your level of government. By August there will be articles for the basic levels of government; local (city/county), state, federal, and military.
The writers are experienced
volunteer managers, with three of them doing that work on a daily basis.
Here are some brief biographies.
Please visit the new Government pages designed by Webmaster Lori Corbett and written with style, wit and lots of good information.

will network, share insights, and explore ways to build volunteer involvement.
eBay Partners for Charity
The worlds most well known auction house has signed a partnering agreement with MissionFish, an online charity auction site, to manage its charity fund-raising program beginning later in 2003. The agreement means that anyone selling on eBay will be able to donate a portion of the proceeds to a charity he or she selects. MissionFish collects donations from the buyer and distributes them to the charity. This move dramatically increases the number of charities who can make use of eBay listings to raise money for their organizations.
