Maine Commission for Community Service
Volunteer Generation Fund 2013
With an additional year of resources from the Volunteer Generation Fund (VGF), the Maine Commission for Community Service will continue work to build a consistent, reliable infrastructure for the volunteer sector in Maine. Building upon successes from the past three years of VGF, the Commission will provide a funding opportunity to existing VGF subgrantees to expand volunteer center activities to increase the capacity of organizations to effectively engage volunteers to address critical needs in their communities and expand opportunities for skill-based volunteering.
The Commission will serve as a Points of Light National Service Enterprise Pilot Site and expand this model to rural areas of the state; assist volunteer centers implement fee for service programs; and develop a Maine Service Fellow initiative based upon the America Service Fellow as outlined in the Kennedy Serve America Act 2009.
