Volunteer Generation Fund (VGF) Funding Announced
Volunteer Florida is excited to announce funding for Florida organizations that seek to increase volunteer recruitment and retention. Volunteer Florida’s Volunteer Generation Fund (VGF) program will help organizations to more effectively recruit, manage, support and retain skills-based volunteers. Skills-based volunteering is a strategic type of volunteerism that expands the impact of community organizations by leveraging professionals’ skills. From accountants to lawyers and management professionals, skills-based volunteering leverages the experience, talents and education of volunteers and matches them with the needs of nonprofits.
VGF is open to any community or faith-based organization that maintains 501(c)(3) nonprofit status, or a government entity in Florida. The applicant must be an organization that mobilizes people and resources to deliver creative solutions to community problems.
Proposals must be submitted electronically, in one PDF file, via the online application system by October 16, 2015 by 5:00 PM EST.
To ensure that this funding process is carried out in a fair and equitable manner, all questions concerning the application should be submitted to VGFapplication@volunteerflorida.org.
A Technical Assistance Conference Call is scheduled for September 24, 2015 at 10:00 a.m EST via GoToMeeting.
