Can volunteer hours count towards in-kind matching funds?

Posted on 2:42 pm

Volunteer hours can only be counted as in-kind if the hours are for a pro bono service that your organization would otherwise pay for with cash funds. For example, a graphic designer who is donating time to design Levitt AMP [Your City] Music Series flyers or a sound technician who is donating time to set up and run the sound system for each concert. Hourly rates should be determined at fair market value. It is anticipated that on-site volunteers will be part of producing your Levitt AMP concert series—standard volunteer tasks such as distributing flyers, setting up an information booth, helping with post-concert clean-up, etc. are not considered pro bono services and therefore would not count towards in-kind matching funds.
