Linda Czipo, executive director of the Center for Non-Profits, noted that informal volunteering in New Jersey ranks above the national average. The survey shows that 65.5 percent of New Jersey residents engaged in informal volunteer work, such as helping a neighbor with shopping or babysitting, compared to 62.5 percent of residents nationwide.

Czipo said there are challenges to recruiting volunteers but they are still playing a critical role as demand for services provided by nonprofit groups climbs.

“The need for volunteers is not going away,” Czipo said.
