Volunteer Generation Funds
The Utah Commission on Service and Volunteerism improves Utah’s volunteer infrastructure by strengthening existing networks of Volunteer Connector Centers, and improving the ability of nonprofits to effectively use volunteers in both short- and long-term roles. The Volunteer Generation Fund has issued grants for Volunteer Management Training and for both MLK and 9/11 National Days of Service in the past several years. The purpose was to raise public awareness of volunteerism and generate interest in service. Our last grant from this fund will be for the 9/11 Day of Service and Remembrance, 2013.
