Abstract The retention of volunteers has been identified as a significant organizational challenge for community sport organizations. However, little is known about the relationship between volunteer motives and their intentions to remain with an organization. In this study, 402 community sport volunteers were surveyed about their motivations to volunteer and intention to remain as volunteers. The results indicate that while volunteer motivations are primarily based on altruistic values, intentions of volunteers to remain with their organisation are only moderately affected by these motives.
