Charities and nonprofits would like to get as many of the 77 million baby boomers volunteering as possible. Boomers make very attractive volunteers because they are well educated, bring well-honed skills and have years of work and life experience. According to the Corporation for National and Community Service, roughly one-third of boomers ages 48 to 66 years volunteer with a religious affiliation, 22% in education, 14% in social service and 8% in hospitals. However, the number of boomers volunteering these days is on the decline. About 28.8% of boomers volunteered in 2010, down from 29.9% in 2007, down from 33.5% in 2003, according to CNCS. An Associated Press-National Constitution Center Poll in August found 69% of boomers did not have time and 19% had health or physical limitations that prevented volunteering.
