Civic engagement plays a crucial role in the work of community nonprofits in the Northwest.
We are proud of our staff who volunteer with charitable organizations in communities where they live and work.
To demonstrate our support, Kaiser Permanente established the Kaiser Permanente Gives — Volunteer Grant Program. This program makes $5,000 to $15,000 in grant funding available to qualified charitable organizations to which Kaiser Permanente employees and clinicians donate their time.
Applications for Kaiser Permanente Gives grants are reviewed quarterly by a committee of Kaiser Permanente volunteers. Applications must be submitted by the community organization, not by a Kaiser Permanente employee. 2013 submission deadlines are February 6, May 1, August 2, and October 28. Grants are announced about 60 days after application deadlines.
Qualification is limited to charitable organizations that facilitate basic needs and self-sufficiency programs. Qualification is also limited to organizations to which a Kaiser Permanente employee or employee team has volunteered 25 hours. Employees are required to log their hours on KPCares.org before the organization can submit an application.
Basic needs are defined as urgent medical and dental care; housing, food, and utility assistance; employment skills training and education; and child care services. Basic needs programs typically provide a short-term bridge to address an immediate crisis. Self-sufficiency programs support individuals in reaching independence. Examples include education, counseling, mentoring, transportation, advocacy, program capacity building, and financial literacy.
Qualifying organizations can apply for a KP Gives grant on behalf of Kaiser Permanente employee volunteer time below. A Logic Model is required for grant requests over $9,999. Applying organizations, click here for a copy of the Logic Model template.
