Once a match request is approved the Foundation supports the employee volunteer by awarding a $750 check to their organization or school. Employees may request volunteer grants on behalf of two separate organizations for a total of $1,500 each year. A nonprofit organization/school may receive a maximum of $25,000 funded from the Verizon Foundation through the Volunteer Grant program each year.
