Through Verizon's Volunteer Incentive Program (VIP), the company provides grants to nonprofits where employees volunteer on a regular basis.

After Verizon employees volunteer 50 hours with an organization in a year, Verizon provides a volunteer grant of $750 to that organization.

Each Verizon employee can request up to two separate $750 grants each year as long as 50 hours have been volunteered with each organization.

Note: While Verizon's matching gift program is open to retirees, the volunteer grant program is only available to current employees.
