FOR BUSINESSES — Your resource for community engagement and corporate social responsibility
Employee volunteer programs vary across businesses. It could be as simple as sharing information about volunteer opportunities with employees to developing single, monthly or annual team projects. Some companies give employees release time, have dollars available to donate to programs where their employees volunteer, or organize in-kind contribution drives. The Volunteer Center can help tailor a program that meets your company’s business goals, your employee’s interests and our community’s needs.
Be sure to check out the Washington County Community Resource guide! Click here, a PDF will open as a new window! It provides up-to-date information for Washington County.
The Volunteer Center is able to offer these services through support from the Volunteer Generation Fund, which is provided by the Corporation for National and Community Service through the Iowa Commission on Volunteer Service.
