Volunteering at Powell Gardens
Corporate matching gift programs are charitable giving programs set up by corporations in which the company matches
donations made by employees to eligible nonprofit organizations. For example, if a donor works for Bank of America and donates $100 to Powell Gardens, Bank of America will double the donation by also writing a check for $100. *Please note that funds from matching gifts cannot be used to upgrade your membership.
Thousands of companies offer matching gift programs. A few examples include:
- Johnson & Johnson – Triples donations with $2:$1 matches for current employees while also doubling donations for retirees.
- Bank of America – Matches donations $1:$1 up to $5,000 annually per employee.
- Home Depot – Matches donations $1:$1 up to $3,000 annually per employee.
Employee Volunteer Grant Programs
Volunteer grant programs, also known as "Dollars for Doers" programs, are charitable giving programs setup by corporations in which the company provides a monetary donation to eligible nonprofits as a way to recognize employees who volunteer. If you volunteer with Powell Gardens and work for a company with a volunteer grant program, you can request a grant for us which normally valued at $10-$15 per hour volunteered.
As a Powell Gardens' volunteer, you receive free admission any time you come to the Gardens. Volunteers also receive member discounts on classes and in the gift shop and are special guests at several volunteer appreciation events throughout the year.
