Volunteer Grants


Many corporations have an established volunteer program which awards grants when an employee donates time and skills to a qualified non-profit organization. The goal is to promote good citizenship and help enrich surrounding communities when employees lend their voluntary support to organizations that positively impact the quality of life. The number of volunteer hours required for the grant varies by corporation.


If you give volunteer time to the CDE,

check with your employer

to see if a volunteer program grant is available. 

The CDE has received grants from the following Corporate Volunteer Grant Programs.
