Volunteer Grants

What Are Volunteer Grants? 

These nifty programs, offered by many companies, allow employees to convert their volunteer hours into financial support for nonprofits. The John Deere Classic is a 501(c)3 (Quad Cities Golf Classic Charitable Foundation), and might be an eligible organization! Funds from volunteer grants go to the Bonus Fund that helps provide the bonus of at least 5% to all participating charities in the Birdies for Charity program. Our Tax ID is 93-1332421.

How Can You Get Involved?

  1. Keep Swinging: Maintain your volunteer momentum. Whether you’re marshaling fairways, assisting players, or ensuring smooth operations, every hour counts.
  2. Corporate Inquiry: Reach out to your HR department or explore your company’s intranet. Look for details on volunteer grant programs (sometimes called “Dollars for Doers” programs).
  3. Submit Your Scorecard: If your employer participates, complete the necessary forms. Some employers might require evidence of your volunteer hours!  
  4. Company Review: Your employer will review your request. If all aligns, they’ll contribute a grant based on your volunteered time.

Why It Matters?

  • Multiplier Effect: Your hours become a force multiplier. More funds mean more impact on our community initiatives.
  • Corporate Citizenship: Companies value community engagement. They’re all about giving back and making the world a better place.
