Some corporations offer volunteer grants (or “Dollars for Doers” grants) in which their employees’ volunteer efforts are rewarded with donations to the charities they support. Some companies with such programs in place include Wal-Mart, Best Buy, Bank of America, Verizon, Sprint, State Farm, H&R Block, Southwest Airlines, and Aetna Healthcare. There may be limitations on amounts awarded, eligible charities, or time frames.
If you volunteer for ASSV in any capacity, please check with your employer’s Human Resources team to see if your company offers such a program. If your volunteer hours with us make you eligible for such a grant, we would be glad to work with you and your employer to complete the grant process. Please call the Shelter office, or email us, if we can help.
