Error establishing a database connection

This either means that the username and password information in your config.php file is incorrect or we can't contact the database server at 10.2.1.8. This could mean your host's database server is down.

If you're unsure what these terms mean you should probably contact your host. If you still need help you can always visit the volunteerscount Support Forums.

Can’t select database

We were able to connect to the database server (which means your username and password is okay) but not able to select the volunteerscount database.

If you don't know how to setup a database you should contact your host. If all else fails you may find help at the WordPress Support Forums.

Why Nonprofits Report Volunteer Contributions

Volunteers are important, sometimes indispensable, in achieving the mission of nonprofit organizations. In Canada and the U.S., in one year volunteer contributions are the equivalent of almost ten million full-time jobs. At the organizational reporting level, however, most volunteer activities are not acknowledged as part of the value that nonprofits add to society. Conventional accounting systems miss the fact that the social impacts of nonprofits are a vital part of their performance story.

Expressing the value of volunteer contributions in economic terms through social accounting statements makes good sense for nonprofits for two reasons: 1) organizations can include their value and scope in decision-making processes; and 2) nonprofits themselves can be recognized by governments, funders, donors, and the community as contributing value by organizing and managing the efforts of volunteers.
