When the coronavirus pandemic hit in early 2020, if you were like most nonprofits, you were blindsided and scrambled to figure out how to continue achieving your mission virtually and remotely.  To provide practical background to this toolkit, we looked at three very different types of organizations:  a 501(c)3 nonprofit, a 501(c)6 association and a for-profit consulting firm.  Their experiences clearly demonstrate that the nimble, technology-savvy organizations are the ones most apt to be flexible and able to respond to the new normal of virtual services.  The book looks at every aspect of an organization to identify strategies to convert to virtual platforms and the pros and cons of each.  Co-author Emily Chambers and I also look at the three emerging types of volunteers and how they are ideally suited to this virtual world:  high-capacity volunteers, volunteers with disabilities and experienced virtual volunteers.  We examined the challenges of supervising volunteers virtually and other significant issues related to volunteers with disabilities.  Practical suggestions and tools or included to move you quickly and efficiently to virtual strategies throughout your organization.  Companion toolkits include:  Nonprofit Toolkit #3:  Becoming a Tech-Focused Nonprofit and Nonprofit Toolkit #6:  Disaster Readiness, all available at
