Virtual volunteerism offers a convenient, flexible way for employees to give back to our community and beyond without traveling to and from work or home! This approach to volunteerism harnesses technology and has led to innovative models for helping communities and idividuals. Volunteers can share their personal talents, professional skills, experience and education with those in need while practicing social distancing. There are many virtual volunteer opportunities, and the range of services organizations provide continues to grow.
As part of the Virtual Volunteerism program, employees can also participate in Micro Volunteering. Micro Volunteering allows anyone, anywhere, the opportunity to participate with or without a computer and are generally tasks that require just a few minutes or a few hours. In addition, Good Samaritans of all types demonstrate to our city that volunteers can still make a difference from home!
Dollars for Doers Program
Beginning June 1, 2019, Wynn will allow employees to volunteer at eligible nonprofit organizations which are then qualified for a cash grant based on the number of personal hours volunteered.
An employee must log 25 personal volunteer hours with an eligible nonprofit at non-Wynn organized volunteer events in order for the nonprofit to be qualified for a $250 cash grant. Employee may log hours retro-actively from January 1, 2020. Volunteer hours will be jointly verified by the Wynn Employee Foundation and verified by the nonprofit. The hours must be logged with the same eligible nonprofit in order to qualify for the $250 cash grant.
Employees are eligible to request Doer Dollars one time per year in the amount of $250. As the program grows and success is measured, Doer Dollars may expand to multiple grants per employee per year.
