What are volunteer grant programs?

Volunteer grant programs, also known as “Dollars for Doers” programs, are corporate giving programs that are created to encourage volunteerism in local communities. Through these programs, companies provide monetary donations to organizations where their employees volunteer.

If you volunteer with us, it’s an easy way to provide us with additional financial support for the hours you have supported us!

How do I request a matching gift or volunteer grant?

Requesting a matching gift or volunteer grant is normally a five minute process which must be initiated by the donor / volunteer. You can do this by filling out and submitting a paper match form provided by your employer or through an electronic submission process.
