Volunteer Grants

Volunteer grant programs are an easy way for volunteers to provide an additional monetary contribution without having to take out their checkbooks. If you’re already volunteering with the Houston Area Urban League Young Professionals, please take a few minutes to check if your employer  or your spouse’s employer offers grants for volunteering – grants that could equal hundreds, or even thousands, of dollars for us.

Volunteer grant programs consist of five steps:

  1. Individual volunteers.

  2. Volunteer determines if their company offers volunteer grants – You can search our database located below to find specific company program details, requirements, and forms.

  3. Volunteer submits the grant request – Either electronically or using a paper form.

  4. We validate the grant request – We verify with the individual’s employer that the individual is in fact a volunteer with our organization.

  5. Corporation cuts a check.
