What are employee volunteer grant programs?
Employee volunteer grant programs, also known as "Dollars for Doers" programs, are charitable giving programs set up by corporations in which the company provides a monetary donation to eligible nonprofits as a way to recognize employees who volunteer.
They enable corporations to give back to their communities and support organizations that employees are already passionate about.
How do volunteer grant programs work?
Volunteer grant programs consist of five steps:
- Individuals volunteer.
- Nonprofits notify eligible volunteers.
- Volunteers submit grant requests.
- Nonprofits validate grant requests.
- Corporations cut checks.
How can your organization benefit?
If your organization has volunteers who dedicate on average 20 hours per year, it is likely some of them work for companies with volunteer grant programs. The average donation is approximately $10-$15 per hour volunteered.
If you raise awareness and make it easy for volunteers, you'll see an increase in volunteer grants.
