A Part of Something Bigger
Volunteers are eligible for mileage from your home to the site that you are volunteering at and then back home again. If your volunteer assignment is driving such as Meals on Wheels or Volunteer Escort Rides, you are paid the full IRS mileage rate.
When you are registered with RSVP everything you are paid through your volunteering is tax exempt. We also carry additional liability and accident insurance on you above and beyond what you already have, this covers you and not your automobile.
AmeriCorps RSVP taps the skills, talents, and experience of Americans age 55 and older to meet a wide range of community challenges. Deliver meals to homebound, give rides to medical appointments, support local food pantries, animal shelters, Habitat for Humanity, promote education, mentoring and provide services in your community.
