About the Program

The Verizon Foundation is proud to support our employees’ volunteering efforts.  Through the Verizon Volunteers program, employees who volunteer 50 hours or more with an eligible charitable organization or educational institution can apply for a $750 volunteer grant which is awarded to the nonprofit where the employee volunteers.

The Verizon Foundation is proud to support the generosity of our employees. After all, the more we partner, the greater our impact will be.
