Corporate Volunteer Hour Match Program

Your employer may match your volunteer hours with charitable donations. Many companies will match an employee’s time volunteering, including volunteering at Howard Brown, with a financial gift – and the donations help us do important things! 

This employer match must be initiated by the volunteer. Check with your employer to see if they have a volunteer hour matching program. If so, reach out to to start doubling your impact!
