Kansas Volunteer Commission Seeking Applications for 2016 Mini-Grant Series

Funds will support local organizations leveraging volunteers to meet needs across Kansas

TOPEKA, KAN. – The Kansas Volunteer Commission (KVC) is pleased to announce up to $3,750 in funding to support local organizations leveraging volunteers to meet the many needs across the state.

Any Kansas public or private nonprofit organizations, public or private schools, institutions of higher education and government operating in the state of Kansas are invited to apply.

In 2009, Congress designated Sep. 11 as a National Day of Service and Remembrance and charged the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) with supporting this effort across the country.  With funding from the CNCS, the Kanas Volunteer Commission is working with organizations across Kansas to engage volunteers in tribute projects.

The Sept. 11 National Day of Service and Remembrance is the culmination of an effort originally launched in 2002 by 9/11 family members and support groups who worked to establish the charitable service day as a forward-looking way to honor 9/11 victims, survivors and others who rose up in service response to the attacks.

The application deadline for funding is Aug. 1, 2016.

For the complete application instructions, blank application and w-9 form, please visit www.kanserve.org or contact Amanda Noll by phone at (785) 368-6207 or by email at anoll@ksde.org.
