Reviewing for Improvement
Please note that Q1, Q2, Q3, and Q4 refer to the first, second, third, and fourth quarters of the Fiscal Year. The City’s Fiscal Year runs from October 1st – September 30th and is denoted by FY.
In the 2nd quarter, volunteers served a total of 6,784 hours, which equates to 14,340 total hours so far in Fiscal Year 2019. This equates to over $172,517 of donated volunteer time for the quarter (per the independent sector “value of volunteer time”; https://independentsector.org/value-of-volunteer-time-2018/). While the number of hours for this quarter are slightly lower than last quarter, there are historically fewer major volunteer events (for example Halloween Town and Tree Lighting) during the 2nd quarter. Since the year-to-date figure is higher than 50% of the annual target, this measure has been evaluated as green for being on target.
Staff is continually promoting new and existing volunteer opportunities through several platforms including social media, the city’s volunteer website, and the volunteer database. Staff is also actively working to improve internal volunteer hour tracking to ensure every hour is captured.
Total volunteer hours include all volunteer hours recorded in the City of Sugar Land volunteer tracking system.
