The Capacity Building through Volunteer Engagement Grant
Research supports the idea that many of the highest performing nonprofits leverage skilled volunteers to increase their capacity and achieve their mission. In an effort to position Kansas nonprofits and volunteer connectors to do this, the Kansas Volunteer Commission is seeking applications for the Capacity Building through Volunteer Engagement Grant (2014 Volunteer Generation Fund).
The Capacity Building through Volunteer Engagement Grant will aim to expand volunteering, strengthen the capacity of volunteer connector organizations and nonprofits to recruit and retain skill-based volunteers, and develop strategies to effectively use volunteers to solve problems. The KVC believes that using skilled volunteers within an organization in both direct and indirect service opportunities not only brings specialized skills, but provides new ways to make progress. Additionally, the KVC supports the idea that volunteer connector organizations are poised to be the catalyst in strengthening this movement.
Awards under this Notice will be made to eligible organizations on a competitive basis.
