Check with your employers. Some businesses contribute money to the Council Office in their employee's name for the hours they volunteer. Those that we identified are listed in the table below. If you work for one of these organizations, you just have to complete a form and depending on the employer, you can get anywhere from $500 to $2,000 donated to Scouting by your employer, just for doing what you already do. Please check with your employer to see if they have a volunteer program.

*Verizon Volunteer Incentive Program recognizes employees' contribution of time and talent to nonprofit organizations. Under the program, employees are eligible to apply for a grant on behalf of the qualified organization where they volunteered 50 hours or more during the year.
Even if you are not a registered leader but help out as a parent on campouts, ceremonies, trips, occasional meetings, etc. you can qualify.
The Foundation rewards these employee volunteers with a $750 check for presentation to the designated organization. Employees may request VIP grants on behalf of two separate organizations for a total of $1,500 each year.
To learn more about this volunteer initiative and to complete your candidate profile, please visit the employee volunteerism initiative page on the Verizon corporate intranet. Verizon Wireless employees should visit their employee Intranet site.
