The NSW State of Volunteering Report is presented by the Centre for Volunteering, in partnership with the Department of Communities and Justice.

This in-depth analysis was undertaken by the Institute of Project Management which surveyed more than 1,100 volunteers and received more than 1,000 responses from volunteer involving organisations. In showcasing the characteristics of these communities and the volunteering landscape at large, the report observes the cost-benefit of the nearly 4.9 million residents across NSW who generously gave more than 1.5 billion hours of volunteering in 2020; contributing to a staggering estimated $127 billion.
