Giving at Work
Does Your Employer Have a Volunteer Grant Program? If so, this is a great way to support the JLC! Volunteer grant programs are charitable giving programs set up by corporations in which a company provides a monetary donation to eligible nonprofits as a way to recognize their employees that volunteer. Typically employers will donate a specific dollar amount to JLC for each hour you volunteer with JLC! If you are unsure if your company offers a volunteer grant program, check with your human resources department. Then, contact the Grant Writing Committee to complete your company’s application at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Attention Blue Cross Blue Shield Employees
The JLC Grant Writing Committee has recently been approved as a Blue Corps Community Partner. This means that for every hour you volunteer with JLC, Blue Cross Blue Shield will donate $20 to JLC! Contact the Grant Writing Committee at email@example.com, if you are employed by BCBS.
