Volunteering these days is hard. From social distancing to fluctuating coronavirus cases, it’s difficult to get the manhours most nonprofits need to support their philanthropy efforts. Luckily, there are ways you can volunteer more than your time to important causes!
If you like BOGO deals or doubling your money’s worth in anything, signing up for GVTC’s Round Up for Change program can be one way to make your good deeds go farther.
What is it?
The Round Up for Change program was created to help fund community efforts of The GVTC Foundation, GVTC’s philanthropic arm. It allows customers to donate a small amount each month through their billing statements to the Foundation. But wait, there’s more. All proceeds raised from this program are then matched by GVTC and donated to The Foundation who supports our community through charitable contributions and volunteer service projects. You may not be able to volunteer yourself this year, but you can most definitely still be a part of those you can!
How does it work?
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. Those pennies, once matched by GVTC, go directly towards scholarships, grants, and event sponsorships throughout GVTC’s service area. For less than a dollar each month, you can join thousands of customers looking to make a difference. And - if you wish to donate more, we won’t stop you! You can specify a different amount you’d like to donate at sign-up, and you can un-enroll at any time by calling in.
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 800-FOR-GVTC and speak to a customer service representative directly. 98842001
Not a customer?
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 800-FOR-GVTC, visit our website, or email firstname.lastname@example.org to make a one-time or recurring gift to The GVTC Foundation.
Where Your Money Goes
As an extension of GVTC, The GVTC Foundation is focused on the same goal - helping the people in our community we serve. We believe building people up and helping those in need is what makes us local. For this reason, we support nonprofits who aid at least one of our six key areas of giving:
- Health & Human Services
- Youth Programs & Services
- Volunteer Emergency Services
- Cultural Programs
- Public Charities
The GVTC Foundation is also 100% employee run with little overhead costs, which means $0.95 of every dollar donated goes directly back into programs to support those most in need. This allows us to help over 100 local nonprofit partners each year.
Be a Part of the Change
There’s something special about investing locally. Your pennies, though small at first, add up to make a big difference in our community. For less than a dollar each month, you can be a part of a mission to enhance the quality of life for those throughout your community. It all starts with a passion to be a part of the change. And it’s more important now than ever before.
