Nevada Volunteers Charity Profile
Nevada Volunteers, known previously as the Nevada Commission for National and Community Service, serves as the Governorís commission to administer AmeriCorps programs throughout Nevada and as the stateís information and resource center for volunteer and service efforts. Nevada Volunteers plans to build a collaborative statewide infrastructure that supports already-existing volunteer efforts across the state; increases and improves volunteer opportunities; and improves volunteer management and retention.
The commission is in its 10th year as a non-profit organization whose primary purpose is to award and administer the AmeriCorps State funds, a national service program that rewards citizens for serving their communities with a stipend and education award. They also manage the annual Governor's Points of Light awards. Their goal is to strengthen Nevada through service and volunteerism.
Our mission is to enhance volunteerism and service through our AmeriCorps programs and our volunteer initiative. While funded primarily through federal funds for our AmeriCorps programs, we are required to have a state match that represents a small portion of our administrative budget. This funding, along with strong private support through sponsorships, in-kind, and grant funding, provides the base needed to have quality AmeriCorps programs, to maintain our interactive website for resource materials and public information about volunteer efforts, provide outreach and training, and support our electronic volunteer match system that connects volunteers with community needs.
