Employees are a key component of building partnerships for stronger communities. Our employee volunteerism and outreach initiatives align with our strategic focus areas: K-12 STEM education, support military and veterans, health and human services and the environment. Whether tutoring students in math, preparing care packages for our troops, contributing to a company-sponsored drive or volunteering with a local nonprofit organization, the passions of our employees help transform our communities.

To qualify for a Community Service Grant, employees must volunteer 40+ hours during the annual grant cycle with one eligible organization and log their volunteer hours in the My Giving portal. The grant is $400 and will be provided directly to the nonprofit organization or public school.
The Difference Maker Awards celebrates employee commitment to making a difference through volunteerism.

Two runners-up in each category will receive a $5,000 charitable grant. Employees can nominate themselves or other volunteers/teams of volunteers.
