Volunteer Recognition Letter


A Volunteer recognition letter is written by an organizer who gives recognition to the recipient for having rendered services on a voluntary basis. It is an encouraging letter to receive as the letter states the service rendered for a particular event. It would also be complimentary to the recipient.

Volunteers are a blessing. They spend time socially working for the underprivileged without any compensation. Thus, it is important that you acknowledge the contributions they make to the society. Thanking them for whatever they have done for the society and this can be done by writing a letter to them. Make certain that you use the right words that will appreciate everything that they have done. Within your appreciation letter for volunteer service, you should provide a positive feedback and mention what was what you liked the most about their service. Also, your volunteer thank you letter should be short, concise and follow a standard format.

Re: Volunteer Recognition


Dear Ms. Callahan,

On behalf of the New York Community Association, it is my pleasure to express our gratitude to your voluntary service last month in helping the association feed the homeless at the slums. This letter serves to recognize your kind voluntary participation in our ‘Feed the Homeless’ mission last month contributed to the event’s success. Starting from real gratitude for helping to sort and organize all the donations we have received these past few weeks. I know it has been a lot of work, but you’ve done an excellent job keeping the inflow and outflow running smoothly. You’re such an important part of our organization, and I hope you know that.

Your selfless act has been an encouraging to the homeless as well as to the association. The compassion you show towards the people we serve is an inspiration to everyone. I’ve noticed how you treat everyone with respect and kindness, no matter what the situation is. We both know how stressful it can be for the people who find themselves in need of the services we provide, and your words and actions go a long way toward helping them keep their dignity. I just want you to know that your work hasn’t gone unnoticed.

Thank you for all that you do. Thank you for your active participation in the mission throughout the whole month. It has been our pleasure to be associated with you.

We wish you every success and joy as you help those who are in need.

Yours Truly,

Gerald J. Conner
