  The Commission on Service and Volunteerism respectfully requests Controlling Board approval to increase appropriation authority in the amount of $41,000 in Fund 5GN0, ALI 866605 (Serve Ohio Support) in FY18.  
  This request for Serve Ohio Support funding is a combination of unspent revenue received in prior fiscal years from private donors, and an additional $30,000 of anticipated revenue we will receive during this fiscal year. Actual donations from corporate sponsors is greater than originally anticipated during budget development, illustrating the continued successful relationship between the commission and the business community.

These funds will be utilized for our annual Conference on Service and Volunteerism and to provide mini-grants for service project grants to support local service projects on three national days of service each year. These expenditures are also used as match toward the federal award.

  The additional revenue is from unspent funds from prior year and anticipated revenue from private donors.

4. For federal funds only, provide the following information:

5. How will the additional appropriation and/or cash be used?
