Retired and Senior Volunteer Program Directors

 

o   The Retired and Senior Volunteer Program engages volunteers age 55+ in addressing critical community needs. Literacy programs, food banks, nutrition programs, companionship and older adult services all rely on RSVP volunteers now more than ever.

o   An investment of only $306,000 per year contributed to 1,501,085 statewide hours of service last year! One of the most cost effective programs in all of Washington State government at just $0.20 per volunteer hour!

o   Volunteer hours served last year are valued at $34,059,618. (Based on Independent Sector’s value of $22.69/volunteer hour.)

o   11,530 RSVP volunteers served in 968 local non-profits last year.

o   State funds help RSVP meet our federal 30% match requirement: In 2013, $306,000 from Department of Commerce leveraged $1,253,632 in federal funding
for 17 RSVP projects statewide.
