AmeriCorps’ General Fund
When you contribute to the AmeriCorps’ General Fund, we will direct your support where it is needed to assist in furthering the mission and goals of the agency.
AmeriCorps members address critical community needs by teaching, mentoring and tutoring kids, rebuilding after disaster, helping veterans and their families, restoring natural habitats, supporting healthy communities, alleviating poverty, and more.
AmeriCorps Seniors mobilizes Americans 55 and up who share their time, wisdom, and talents to reach out to other seniors in need, mentor and tutor youth, and help communities overcome a variety of challenges.
When disaster strikes, AmeriCorps coordinates volunteers across the country to assist with repair and recovery efforts.
