Company Grant Programs
Do you volunteer a large number of hours at Fox Creek in the classroom or with PTO?
If you volunteer at Fox Creek and your company has a grant program for non-profit organizations, please consider Fox Creek Elementary PTO as your choice of organization to receive grant money. With some companies, volunteers can even request specifics on what the grant money should be used for through PTO.
A great example of a company grant program is the State Farm Good Neighbor Grant Program. The State Farm Companies Foundation awards a $500 grant on behalf of each eligible State Farm® associate (active employee, agent, or retiree) who volunteered a minimum of 40 hours per calendar year to an eligible nonprofit organization.
Not sure if your company has a grant program for non-profits? Feel free to check into it and thank you to all those who spend time volunteering at Fox Creek!
