The Massachusetts Service Alliance (MSA), established in 1991, is a private, nonprofit organization that serves as the state commission on service and volunteerism.
MSA promotes and supports service and volunteerism by investing public and private resources in community-based organizations that rely upon volunteers and people engaged in service to meet their community's needs. We administer the AmeriCorps State program for Massachusetts and the Commonwealth Corps program, as well as support for community service learning, and volunteer generation initiatives. We provide training and technical assistance to organizations to support their volunteer and service member management through one-on-one technical assistance, trainings and workshops throughout the year, and a bi-annual statewide conference on service and volunteerism.
MSA builds a stronger social fabric in our communities through service and volunteerism. We are committed to increasing the number of people engaged in meaningful volunteer opportunities across Massachusetts that are both fulfilling for the volunteers and that meet critical needs in our community. Our mission is to catalyze the innovation and growth of service and volunteerism by creating partnerships that maximize resources, expertise, capacity and impact and to invest public and private funds in community-based organizations in a fair and equitable manner.
