Senior Corps

I’m a faith-based organization. Am I eligible to apply for a Senior Corps grant?

The Corporation for National and Community Service's Faith-based and Community Initiatives (FBCI) is an integral part of our efforts to provide opportunities for Americans of all ages and backgrounds to give back to their communities. FCBI helps connect faith-based and other community groups to the Corporation, ensuring that these groups have the capacity, tools, and volunteer power they need to help America’s communities flourish. Learn more about FBCI.

How do I benefit?

You’ll forge new relationships with people in your community and make a significant difference in the lives of others.  Senior Corps service also provides tangible benefits for volunteers. The Foster Grandparent and Senior Companion programs offer modest stipends and other ways to help offset the costs of volunteering. Other benefits include training and insurance.

Is Senior Corps a good place to learn new skills?

Absolutely! Senior Corps volunteers often tap their wealth of experience and wisdom and channel it in new directions. For example, some volunteers learn how to be effective tutors to young children; some organize community watch programs or environmental protection projects; others help nonprofit organization boards with planning or resource development. Your host agency will provide the training you need to be effective.
