Nonprofits need specialized volunteers

Nonprofits need specialized volunteers: "Minnesota's 40.4 percent volunteer rate -- the percentage of adults who give away their time -- ranks third-highest in the country; the national average is 26.7 percent. While nationally, about one in three volunteers drops out of projects before their completion, Minnesota's portion of adults who continue their volunteer service for more than a year leads all the states.

Volunteering is a 'win-win,' said Tony Dungy, the football coach and University of Minnesota alumnus who is a member of the President's Council."
