Volunteer Generation Fund
The Commission received its first Volunteer Generation Fund (VGF) grant from the Corporation on National and Community Service in 2010. The most recent program provided grants to Empire State nonprofits engaging volunteers to alleviate hunger. These grantees, or “flagship” organizations, partnered with other nonprofits in their communities to recruit, train, place, and manage volunteers.
