Partners: Call to Action
Our in-box is full this month with partners call to action including voter registration deadlines, survey requests, pre-conference sessions and Virtual Conferences! There are deadlines looming so let’s make this quick and easy for your punch lists.
Applications for the AmeriCorps State Formula Grant (RFGA#: RFGA-FOR-GOYFF-080124-00) are now being accepted. Approximately $4 million will be awarded to programs throughout Arizona to engage AmeriCorps members in evidence-based or evidence-informed interventions/practices that extend organizational capacity to address critical community needs in one of six AmeriCorps focus areas: disaster services, economic opportunity, education, environmental stewardship, healthy futures, and services for veterans and military families. Organizations awarded AmeriCorps funding will be responsible for the recruitment, training, supervision, and management of AmeriCorps members. We suggest you collaborate with fund development and HR to divide the work.
Annually, ASU Lodestar Center for Philanthropy and Nonprofit Innovation asks for feedback to inform their programming. Feedback is critical as they pursue their goal to help those who lead, manage and support nonprofits to accelerate social impact. This survey closes on Friday, February 9. It should take no longer than 10 minutes. Volunteer Management feedback participation is critical to industry acceptance.
