Motivate your employees to volunteer with the American Red Cross Bay Area Chapter by matching hours served with a financial donation from your company. A matching grant for employee volunteering, also known as a dollars for doers program, acts as an alternative to a matching gift program for employees who are able to donate time but not money. It also motivates employees to engage more deeply in the community through volunteer work.
An estimated 60 percent of mid- and large-size businesses currently maintain programs to provide grants for employee volunteering, and the number is expected to reach 75 percent within a year or two.
