What Types of Responsibilities Should Be Delegated?

Delegating responsibility is not something that only nonprofit organizations deal with, but something that can hinder how well your human resources are going to function as a whole.  Often the best thing a nonprofit agency can do is implore the use of their volunteer staff members to help get the job done quickly and efficiently.  Not using the volunteer members limits the amount of work that can get done in the organization, which is why it is important to use all of the different resources you have available to you as a nonprofit agency.

Delegating administration responsibilities can help save you a tremendous amount of time and hassles.  You can have a team of volunteer members handle filing, typing, answering phones, sending out fliers and much more.  Plenty of work abounds in the office, so unleash the potential of your volunteers and accomplish far more than if you were to try and do everything on your own.

Letting the volunteer members help with the advertising or marketing of the agency is another way to delegate responsibility.  Everyone is working toward the same cause, so why not let everyone put their best foot forward and get more information out there than you can do on your own.  When everyone works together in the best interest of the organization, a lot more can get done in a relatively short amount of time.

Everyone has their own individual skills and talents that can be used to help benefit the nonprofit agency as a whole.  Letting everyone do something that they are great at will help get more done and save you a lot of time and energy that you can focus elsewhere?  Anything that can be done by someone else can be delegated to help benefit the organization and garner the attention and efficiency it needs.
