Building on the Tyler and Bladers social identity model of pride and respect, the current study examined the degree of affective and normative commitment among volunteer members of the Dutch Institute of Psychologists (NIP; N = 191). SEM-analyses revealed that feelings of respect are crucial for the volunteers. These feelings fuel their pride and these feelings of proudness subsequently influence volunteers’ affective and normative commitment to the organization. More than pride, feelings of respect are driven by the degree of task and emotional support volunteers received from the organization. Supplementary analyses indicated that volunteers’ motives to participate in the NIP organization involve values, understanding and career.
