Value of Volunteer Time Rose Three Percent in 2018
Independent Sector has announced that the estimated value of a volunteer hour in the U.S. reached $25.43 in 2018, up nearly three percent from $24.69 in 2017.
The estimate is based on the average hourly earnings (plus 12 percent, to account for fringe benefits) of all production and non-supervisory workers on private non-farm payrolls as calculated by the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Announced earlier this month in conjunction with National Volunteer Week, a program of Points of Light, the estimated value of a volunteer hour was highest in the District of Columbia ($41.72), followed by Massachusetts ($32.15), Washington ($31.72), Connecticut ($31.05), New York ($30.18), and California ($29.95). 
Some 63 million Americans currently volunteer about eight billion hours with an estimated value of approximately $203.4 billion to nonprofit organizations of all types. 
"Volunteerism has been a driving force in the strength and power of our civil society since this country's founding," said Independent Sector president and CEO Dan Cardinali. "We know that giving of our time, talent, and effort transforms organizations, communities, and our nation, and also has profound effects on the individuals giving their time. The Value of Volunteer Time gives us just one concrete measure to illustrate the power of individuals to transform communities."

ELIGIBILITY: To be eligible, applicants must be a U.S.-based healthcare organization.
PURPOSE: The American College of Cardiology's Accreditation Services help hospitals improve care for patients with acute coronary syndromes, heart failure, and atrial fibrillation.
In 2016, ACC merged with the Society of Cardiovascular Patient Care (SCPC), a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the care and outcomes of patients worldwide facing the same complications. To preserve the legacy of SCPC, an endowment was created to support future cardiovascular quality or performance improvement initiatives, particularly those that underscore the importance of accreditation.
To advance that mission, ACCF is accepting proposals that support cardiovascular quality improvement of cardiovascular care and patient outcomes. Awards of up to $100,000 will support projects that contribute to the evidence base for accreditation; develop or evaluate cardiovascular quality initiatives that strengthen the accreditation process; provide opportunities for education that support quality or performance improvement projects; improve EMS systems of care in collaboration with community hospitals providing accreditation services; or provide public health education to improve community measures/outcomes related to early recognition of heart attack symptoms and appropriate action steps.
Projects of interest include those that support scholarly or creative work that advances the principles of cardiovascular patient care performance improvement using ACC accreditation data; convene educational symposia and/or lectures; advance cardiovascular care; establish heart-safe communities that promote Early Heart Attack Care; and/or fund low- performing hospitals and/or critical access hospitals seeking ACC accreditation.

Doris Duke Charitable Foundation Accepting Applications for Physician-Scientist Fellowship
SOURCE: Doris Duke Charitable Foundation (DDCF)
APPLICATION DEADLINE: 6/7/19.
$ AVAILABLE: Through the program, awards of $110,000 ($100,00 direct costs plus $10,000 for indirect costs) will be awarded each year for one to two years, depending on the needs of the applicant. In 2019, DDCF expects to fund between four and eight proposals.
ELIGIBILITY: To be eligible, applicants must be a physician-scientist (MD, MD/PhD, DO, or foreign equivalent) in subspecialty training working at a U.S. academic institution that grants doctoral degrees and is able to receive a grant as a tax-exempt organization under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
PURPOSE: The Doris Duke Charitable Foundation is inviting applications for its 2019 Physician-Scientist Fellowship.
Physician-scientists lend vital expertise to biomedical research through their training as both clinicians and researchers. The Physician-Scientist Fellowship program seeks to support the capacity of physician-scientists in subspecialty training to lead and conduct an outstanding clinical research project; ensure research time protection to enable the development of their research skills; and facilitate strong mentoring relations. The award aims to support researchers during the final years of their subspecialty and aid in the transition to a research faculty appointment.
The priority of the PSF award is to fund candidates with a passion for conducting clinical research; the foundation does not have funding priorities based on disease area or research type. The foundation strongly encourages applications from women and those from groups that are underrepresented in medicine, including blacks/African Americans, Hispanics/Latinos, American Indians, Alaskan Natives, and Native Hawaiians.

Webinar - DOJ’s Use of the False Claims Act: How Grantees Can Mitigate Their Risks 
SPONSOR: Thompson Grants
WHEN: May 14, noon to 1:30 pm.
WHERE: Webinar.
DESCRIPTION: Duke University recently paid the Department of Justice (DOJ) $112.5 million to settle an allegation of fraud in its handling of federal grants. The size of the settlement made news but it’s just one of the cases arising as DOJ continues to scrutinize grantees under the False Claim Act (FCA). How can your own organization avoid similar liability? Attorney Derek Adams represents clients facing enforcement and legal actions under the False Claim Act (FCA). In a new webinar, he explains what triggers fraud allegations and the specific steps federal grantees can take to mitigate their risks.
Avoid million-dollar liability. From details on recent cases—including the $112.5 million Duke University settlement—you’ll spot potential vulnerabilities in your own grant program. You’ll also learn what to do if allegations arise, including how not to make matters worse by violating often-overlooked whistleblower protections. Plus, you’ll have the chance to ask your own questions during the Q&A portion of the webinar.
COST: Live: $249. On demand: $249. Live and on demand: $349. For more information and registration go to http://grants.thompson.com/DOJs-Use-of-the-False-Claims-Act-2019?_zs=hXbRL1&_zl=gD055
