Mission Statement

Volunteer Florida strengthens Florida’s communities through national service, fostering volunteerism and leveraging resources.

Description

Volunteer Florida’s Commission is administratively housed within the Executive Office of the Governor and guided by a bipartisan board of Commissioners, who are appointed by the Governor and confirmed by the Senate.

Administration of national service programs is a top priority of the Commission. National service programs like AmeriCorps offer Floridians the opportunity to engage in intensive service to their community while increasing capacity for nonprofits and other service organizations. In fact, 82% of Volunteer Florida’s funding is subgranted to educational foundations, nonprofits, faith-based organizations and other qualifying organizations for national service and volunteer programs.

Volunteer Florida provides necessary oversight and accountability of these grants through its Commission and staff. Because national service grants require matching funds and a competitive application process, our staff ensures that these grants have proper programmatic and financial oversight, and provides grant staff with trainings and professional support.

Volunteer Florida also leads initiatives throughout Florida that use volunteerism as a strategy to meet needs. These initiatives include engaging Floridians in service for Florida Volunteer Month, service projects for national days of service including September 11 and Martin Luther King Jr. Day, and increasing volunteerism through trainings and recognitions.
