As a volunteer, you might be able to help raise funds for Austin Dog Alliance through your employer! Volunteer grant programs, also known as “Dollars for Doers” programs, are corporate giving programs created to encourage volunteerism in communities where employees live and work.
Through these programs, companies provide monetary grants to organizations where employees volunteer regularly. If you're not sure, check with your employer to see if they have a donation program for employees who volunteer regularly. If not, maybe it's something they'd be interested in starting!
