4 Ways you can give back to the community through The GVTC Foundation

by Brianne Magott | May 15, 2021

There’s something special about giving back to your community, especially during the unprecedented times we have been living through the past couple of years. The GVTC Foundation is an organization that is dedicated to the goal of building and supporting stronger communities within the GVTC serving area. We are proud of the investments made in the areas we serve, donating thousands of dollars to numerous causes. Below are a few ways you can give back by supporting The GVTC Foundation.

  • Round Up For ChangeRound Up for Change

  •  
  • The Round Up for Change program works by allowing customers to donate a small amount each month through their billing statements to the Foundation. All proceeds raised from this program are then matched by GVTC and donated to The GVTC Foundation who supports our community through charitable contributions and volunteer service projects. When a customer enrolls in the program, they agree to have their monthly billing statement rounded to the nearest whole dollar each month as a donation to The GVTC Foundation. Once matched by GVTC, those pennies go directly towards scholarships, grants, and event sponsorships throughout GVTC’s service area.
  •  
  • Ready to be a part of the change? Signing up is easy. All you have to do is visit gvtc.com/roundup and select the “Login to Enroll” button to follow enrollment instructions. Or, you can call us directly at 1- 800-FOR-GVTC and speak to a customer service representative directly. If you’re not a GVTC customer, that’s ok! While you won’t be able to “Round Up” anything, you can always contact us at 1- 800-FOR-GVTC, visit our website, or email info@gvtcfoundation.com to make a one-time or recurring gift to The GVTC Foundation.

  • Amazon Smile

  •  
  • Shop at smile.amazon.com/ch/20-5731821 or with AmazonSmile ON in the Amazon Shopping app, and AmazonSmile will donate to The GVTC Foundation at no cost to you. Amazon Smile has the same products, prices, and shopping features as Amazon.com. The difference is that when you shop on AmazonSmile, the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price of eligible products to our foundation. You can also shop AmazonSmile Charity Lists at smile.amazon.com/gp/ch/list/20-5731821 to donate items to GVTC Foundation Inc. If that’s not a reason to shop, I don’t know what is!

  • Volunteer-2Volunteering your time

  •  
  • If you would like hands-on experience in volunteering, The GVTC Foundation has many events that they need assistance on. One of the largest projects that The GVTC Foundation takes on each year is Thanksgiving Giveback.
  •  
  • The annual Thanksgiving Giveback Project is where we supply Thanksgiving meals, including a full frozen turkey and all the traditional fixings, to those in need. By teaming up with local food pantries, The GVTC Foundation is able to identify families truly in need within the GVTC service area, which encompasses all of Boerne, Canyon Lake, Bulverde, Spring Branch, Blanco, and Gonzales.
