There are thousands of different issues and causes close to many employees’ hearts, such as mental illness and NAMI. Many give countless hours to help worthy organizations. Many employers applaud their commitment and support their efforts with an Employee Volunteer Grant program. This program awards small grants to the nonprofit organizations where the employees regularly dedicate their volunteer hours.
Employees from many different employers volunteer thousands of hours for NAMI each year. To honor those who give their time and service to NAMI and other eligible charitable organizations, civic minded employer awards grants, which are up to certain dollar amounts per employee for each calendar year and are made in the name of the associate, to the NAMI or the eligible charitable organization they designate.

Qualified organizations must have a charitable status and serve communities in the areas of interest designated by the employer.
