Your Company’s Employee Volunteer Program Could Help Drive Our Charities
It’s wonderful to hear about the dedication and generosity of the 1,200 volunteers who give their time to support to the PVGP Charities. It’s a testament to the power of community and the importance of giving back. It’s especially heartening to hear that some of these volunteers are taking time off work to participate and that their employers are supportive of their efforts. It’s a great example of how businesses can contribute to the greater good by encouraging and enabling their employees to volunteer and support worthy causes.
The PVGP uses the funds raised to support individuals with autism and intellectual/developmental disabilities. This kind of outreach and support is essential for building stronger and more inclusive communities.
Many companies offer an Employee Volunteer Program (EVP). An EVP is defined as a planned, managed effort that seeks to motivate and enable employees to effectively serve community needs through the leadership of the employer. Most companies make a donation to the charity for your hours and some even match any charitable contributions made by their employees, retirees or spouses. If you want to increase the impact of your charitable gift or volunteer hours to the Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix Association, please ask your employer about their EVP and matching gifts programs.
Does your company participate in United Way campaigns? The Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix is enrolled as a Contributor Choice Agency of the United Way. Simply select Agency ID #1308229 when you contribute at work.
