Senior Volunteering at a 10-Year High

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: 
Monday, May 6, 2013 (All day)
According to new data released today by the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS), senior volunteering is at a 10-year high – one in three volunteers is a senior age 55 and older. These men and women tap a lifetime of experience to help those in greatest need. More than 20 million senior volunteers gave nearly 3 billion hours of service, at a value of $67 billion.

Once you receive a grant, there are specific responsibilities your organization must fulfill. How you use your funds and report on program and fiscal management outcomes are mandated by the terms of the grant. Specific requirements are included in the program regulations.
