The Volunteer Generation Fund (VGF) is a new opportunity created by the Edward M. Kennedy Serve America Act. The purpose of the VGF is to increase the number of people who serve in meaningful roles as volunteers dedicated to addressing important needs in communities across Kansas. More specifically, VGF 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.
The Kansas Volunteer Commission is honored to be one of the first recipients of a Volunteer Generation Fund grant from the Corporation for National and Community Service. The VGF will allow KVC to make funding available for the creation of new, or the expansion of existing, volunteer-connector organizations. By building the capacity of these organizations, we are helping to empower all Kansans to meet community needs through volunteer service.
