Did you know that many organizations have foundations that are proud to support their employees’ volunteering efforts? Check with your employer today.
Volunteer Grants Typically, if you volunteer a defined number of hours to an eligible charitable organization you can apply for a volunteer grant that is awarded to the nonprofit where you volunteer. As a member of Somers Youth Sports Organization (SYSO), a 501(c)3 non-profit, FC Somers is an eligible charitable organization. Companies we know that offer this program include: IBM, UBS, GE, Verizon and MBIA.
Matching Funds Organizations, such as the PepsiCo Foundation and IBM matches associates’ personal contributions made to eligible nonprofit organizations and sometimes provides a double match where associates are involved as volunteers.
We can provide you with all the necessary documentation for your employer, and when received your volunteer grant/matching funds will be used to support your childs team.
