Volunteering in America 2009,
the most comprehensive data ever assembled on volunteer trends and
demographics, found that a total of 61.8 million Americans volunteered
through an organization in 2008, up one million from the previous year.
America's volunteers dedicated more than 8 billion hours of service in
2008, worth an estimated $162 billion.
While the formal volunteering rate in America remained relatively
stable at 26.4 percent, other less-formal ways of serving in
communities have dramatically increased. The number of people who
worked with their neighbors to fix a community problem rose by 31
percent, from 15.2 million in 2007 to 19.9 million in 2008, suggesting
an emerging trend of self-organized ‘do-it-yourself' service, a trend
the Obama Administration is working to encourage through its United We
Serve initiative and Serve.gov website.
