Reminder about Employee Volunteer Grant Programs

Employee Volunteer Grant Programs are an employee focused way for businesses to invest in the community while also recognizing the volunteer hours their employees have contributed to local organizations. Some examples of companies that offer a volunteer grant program or a matching funds program to their employees include RBC, Enbridge, Loblaws, Cenovus, Suncor, TransCanada, ATB Financial, Apple, Benevity and many others.

If you are working for a medium or large company there may be a grant program in place to recognize the volunteer hours you have generously contributed to Green Calgary and other charities in 2018. We encourage you to ask your employer if they have an Employee Volunteer Grant Program, review their eligibility requirements and apply before the end of the year.

We would be happy to help you calculate your total volunteer hours for the year and provide confirmation and details about your volunteer experience with us. To learn more, please contact Gabriela (gabriela@greencalgary.org).

 

Orientations

Volunteer Orientation: Monday, November 19th – for new Green Calgary Volunteers

We’ve made it even easier to get into a volunteer orientation! Starting this year, the schedule for orientations will be more varied (afternoons, evenings, weekends), to help fit your busy life! If you haven’t been to a volunteer orientation and have just signed up as a volunteer, you’ll find this orientation quite helpful. This orientation will tell you who Green Calgary is, what we do, and what kinds of volunteer opportunities we have in the year to come. You can also bring friends or family members to get them into volunteering, too! Ages 14+ welcome. Refreshments provided. For more information, contact lex@greencalgary.org or visit the Eventbrite site.

When: Monday, November 19th – 6 to 7:30pm

Where: Green Calgary Office, #100, 301 – 14th Street NW
