The Volunteer Tool
It is not the same! Since no individual owner or stockholder makes a profit, and the organization has a not-for-profit purpose, people will pitch in and help. Voluntarily contributed energy in the form of resources such as time, money, and expertise is the special tool of the voluntary sector. Whether the organization is labor-intensive, like the Junior League, or capital-intensive, like an art museum, someone has been willing—without coercion or promise of repayment in kind—to help achieve its purpose. Voluntarily contributed resources are its chief means of doing its work.
