VOLUNTEERS Employer Match Programs -
Making an Even Bigger Difference


Your employer may be among the 15,000 companies that match employee volunteer hours and charitable contributions with cash donations. Among local employers, Microsoft is currently providing ongoing matching contributions totaling more than $4,000.00 annually. Programs like these can double the value of your volunteer hours and cash donations.

If you name the Fairfax County Park Foundation, the 501(c)(3) tax-exempt charitable organization that supports the Park Authority, to receive the donation, we will direct the funds to the volunteer program. Check your company website or call your human resources department to see if your employer supports your community involvement.
