April 14, 2023 /CSRwire/ - This Global Volunteer Month, the VolunteerMatch team welcomes two new members to their Board of Directors, Lillian Samuel, and Renee Kaplan, both highly respected CEOs in the nonprofit sector.

Jude O’Reilley, CEO of VolunteerMatch, says, “It is incredibly meaningful to us to have two such established leaders of social change join the VolunteerMatch Board. Non-profit organizations are at a crucial moment in their recovery from COVID. Volunteers play a critical role. Lillian and Renee bring a view from the grassroots and the grasstops that will help drive the next generation of our vision and strategy.”

Lillian Samuel, the CEO of Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Bay Area, expressed her enthusiasm about joining the VolunteerMatch Board by stating, "As the CEO of an organization powered by volunteers to deliver our mission to mentor youth, I am thrilled to join the VolunteerMatch Board. I look forward to using my expertise and experience to achieve our shared vision of connecting good people to volunteer opportunities that make a positive impact in the community. Together, we can build a brighter future for all."

Renee Kaplan, the CEO of The Philanthropy Workshop, also shared her thoughts about becoming part of the leadership team, "VolunteerMatch is supporting individuals to get more connected to their communities and building trusted partnerships to do it. I am proud to join the Board of Directors and to be part of this movement to accelerate meaningful and greater impact for all.”
