Volunteer Generation Fund

Volunteer Florida administers the federal Volunteer Generation Fund (VGF) in Florida in partnership with the federal agency AmeriCorps. VGF increases the capacity of nonprofit organizations to recruit, manage and retain skills-based volunteers to serve in nonprofit organizations.

Skills-based volunteerism expands the impact of these organizations by leveraging the skills of professionals, such as IT consultants, accountants and lawyers. They promote disaster preparedness and opioid abuse awareness, while also helping job-seekers find employment and teaching financial literacy and work readiness skills to Floridians.
