Does your small town or big city need a way to connect to volunteer gigs?

Grant funding is now available to develop Volunteer Centers and to strengthen volunteer infrastructure throughout the state through Volunteer West Virginia and the Volunteer Generation Fund (VGF).

Volunteer Generation Fund (VGF) grant funds support development and strengthening of the volunteer infrastructure in West Virginia through Volunteer Centers. 

Volunteer Centers will: a) connect people with opportunities to volunteer and serve, b) increase capacity for organizations to engage volunteers in meaningful service, c) promote volunteering and d) develop internally and/or support partners in developing local programming/projects designed to utilize volunteerism as a solution to community problems.
