Introducing a New Employee Benefit!
Red River recognizes that many employees are involved with important charities and organizations outside of the Red River Charitable Foundation’s focus areas and that sometimes our corporate donation matching program or community services days are simply not enough. This new benefit is for employees that are personally and passionately involved in a cause where monetary support is needed.
It’s time we Positively Transform YOUR Community through the Red River Cares Program!
The Red River Cares Program is a way to honor employees who may not give financially to a specific cause but donate their time and energy on an ongoing consistent basis. Some combination of giving their own time, resources, money or other support is required. To qualify you need to provide us with information on why this charitable effort is meaningful to you and impactful to others. We want to hear about the great work you are doing in your communities – so apply below!
Who Can Participate: All active full-time employees.
Eligible Organizations: Eligible organizations must be located in the United States or one of its territories. Unlike the Red River Donation Matching program, the organization does not need to hold tax exempt status.
Examples of eligible requests:
- You are a board member of a local non-profit and are actively involved in fundraising to purchase household goods for the homeless.
- You volunteer at an animal shelter and they need new kennels.
- You mentor your child’s robotics team and they need funds to travel to a competition.
- You volunteer for a veteran’s organization that runs a retreat for veterans and their families and they need supplies or equipment.
What is Not Eligible? Requests involving political organizations, unless the request is regarding a program that has demonstrated to benefit the community at large.
The maximum donation request amount is $500.
Employees may apply more than once, however, are only eligible for up to one approved donation per calendar year.
Eligible requests are processed and awarded to organizations on the following quarterly schedule.
