Volunteer Management and Tracking
I work for a small nonprofit that greatly relies on the help of volunteers. It is important that we track these volunteers, their contact information, the projects they've worked on, the hours they've worked, etc. How can SalesForce help me with volunteer management?
Then, take a look at some of these pre-packaged applications to help manage volunteers (most are free) and see if one of them fits the criteria or comes close. Here's a link to review them:

I did several projects for Exponent Partners where we tackled this situation exactly. I suggest you give them a call as they only work with non-profits and are great as they believe in what they do. (Yeah, OK, or you could come to me ;-) ). Honestly, you should work with a company who only works with nonprofits as they just get it; even though I have moved on from Exponent Partners I highly recommend them for nonprofit projects.
Here is a link to the Dreamforce 2009 youtube videos for nonprofits which has real people talking about real experiences and is very useful:
Also, get in touch with the Salesforce Foundation and you can register for free consulting advice/ implementations as part of Dreamforce '10 so you could end up with one of us volunteering to set it up for you.
