Highlight Top Volunteers within an Opportunity with a Leaderboard

Surface and recognize contributions from your top or most loyal staff and encourage others to participate in opportunities


Highlight your top volunteers by adding a leaderboard to an opportunity’s Public Page. A leaderboard is a great way to surface and recognize contributions from your top or most loyal staff and encourage others to participate in opportunities.

Leaderboard rankings are based on total hours worked. For example, you might want to show for your opportunity:

  • Top 10 volunteers, all time
  • Top 5 volunteers this month

You can create and display a leaderboard at the organization level or at the opportunity level. This article covers the leaderboard at the opportunity level. For information about configuring leaderboards at the opportunity level see Highlight Top Volunteers with a Leaderboard.

Note: The leaderboard is only visible to members of your organization. Non-members and members of the general public cannot see the leaderboard.


To display the leaderboard on your opportunity’s Public Page for staff who are part of your organization:

  1. Select My Organizations.
  2. Select your organization.
  3. Select Opportunities and choose the opportunity where you’d like a leaderboard.
  4. Under Public Page Toolbox, select Page Settings.
  5. Scroll down to Preview Leaderboard and select Show.
  6. Optional: To change the length of the leaderboard, set the timeframe the leaderboard covers, or show/hide the number of hours worked next to the person, expand Advanced Settings and choose which options you prefer.
  7. Select Save to update the leaderboard settings.

To view the leaderboard, go to your opportunity’s Public Page. The link is at the top of the opportunity’s setup page, under Key Signup Links. On the opportunity’s Public Page, the leaderboard displays below the opportunity overview.

Note: Only individual volunteers or staff are eligible to show on a leaderboard. Group leaders are excluded from leaderboards because group leaders accrue hours on behalf of multiple people.
