Apr 16, 2019

Adaptive Insights, a Workday (NASDAQ: WDAY) company,  honors its nearly 750 nonprofit customers during National Volunteer Month. National Volunteer Month was established in 1981 and is an opportunity to recognize and thank volunteers who lend their time, talent, voice, and support to causes they care about in their community, as well as inspire volunteerism.

Organizations like Room to Read have benefitted from volunteer resources that support their mission and cause. Room to Read was founded in 2000 on the basis that World Change Starts with Educated Children®. The organization focuses on deep, systemic transformation within schools in low-income communities during two time periods that are most critical in a child’s schooling: early primary school for literacy acquisition and secondary school for girls’ education. Since 2000, the organization has impacted 16.8 million children across 37,000 low-income communities around the world. Room to Read’s volunteer network consists of over 45 volunteer chapters globally that support Room to Read through awareness raising and fundraising activities.

“Our volunteers are critical to our mission and the revenue they generate helps us reach more deserving children each year,” said Nancy Shyer, senior director of finance, at Room to Read. “We’re proud to say that 86 percent of all donations are directed toward our programs. Efficient planning for revenue deployment, including investments sourced from volunteers, is critical to achieving our goals for benefiting children each year.”

“It’s an honor to be associated with impactful organizations like Room to Read,” said Sean Cox, vice president of customer success at Adaptive Insights. “With the ability to better plan, these organizations are able to make every dollar and every volunteer hour count toward their mission. Volunteers sacrifice so much to give back to their communities, and we salute them today and every day for the difference they make in our world.”
