Executive Summary

The Washington Commission for National and Community Service (WCNCS), in partnership with 501 Commons and the Volunteer Centers of Washington, requests $208,934 to support Washington Serves, an effective volunteer ecosystem that builds capacity in the volunteer sector throughout the state of Washington. The Volunteer Generation Fund (VGF) will support efforts to: 1) strengthen the capacity of volunteer connector organizations and nonprofits to recruit and train volunteers by offering training and other professional development opportunities; 2) engage skills-based volunteers, including a successful emergency planning model that engages these volunteers, most of them veterans, in performing emergency planning for residents of low income housing projects; 3) increase capacity to support a new statewide service requirement for high school students to participate in service; and (4) integrate technology to improve business processes in volunteer connector organizations.
