Last week, Volunteer Florida released a Request for Proposals for its Volunteer Generation Fund grant. Funding will allow grantees to recruit and retain skills-based volunteers. The Volunteer Generation Fund (VGF) will help nonprofits use skills-based volunteers to serve Florida students, families, and communities.

Volunteer Florida’s VGF program helps 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 engaging professionals from all industries, matching their experience, talents and education with the needs of nonprofits.

TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE CALL: The Technical Assistance call for this grant was held on Friday, July 7, 2017. The recording has been posted to the Volunteer Florida website for your convenience. You may access it, the Request for Proposals and all other documents by visiting our Grants page.
