Volunteer Generation Fund FY13

The Volunteer Generation Fund is designed to retain and increase the number of people who serve in meaningful roles as volunteers dedicated to addressing important needs in communities across America.

The Volunteer Generation Fund grants will be used to develop and/or support community-based entities

to recruit, manage, and support volunteers.

The Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) seeks to fund effective approaches that expand volunteering, strengthen the capacity of volunteer connector organizations to recruit and retain skill-based volunteers, and develop strategies to effectively use volunteers to solve problems.

Specifically, the Volunteer Generation Fund grants will support efforts that expand the capacity of volunteer connector organizations to recruit, manage, support and retain individuals to serve in high quality volunteer assignments.

Programs funded through the Volunteer Generation Fund will establish outcomes to measure the number of both new and retained volunteers managed and supported by grant funds and the types and amounts of activities carried out by volunteers.

This competition is open to current Volunteer Generation Fund grantees only.

Awards under this Notice will be made to eligible organizations on a competitive basis.
