VolunteerMatch Welcomes New Client Amgen with Launch of Amgen Volunteers Site

Amgen, a leading human therapeutics company in the biotechnology industry, recently partnered with VolunteerMatch to provide a portal for its employee volunteer program — Amgen Volunteers. They join nearly a dozen of today’s most effective health-related companies in our family of businesses who are engaging employees in choice-based volunteer activities.

Each year, thousands of Amgen staff members get involved in their local communities, generously devoting their time, talent and funds to a variety of charitable organizations. With help from their new VolunteerMatch deployment, Amgen Volunteers will be a comprehensive program to support employee volunteer efforts by helping team members discover opportunities with local volunteer organizations, earn monetary support for their favorite charitable organizations, and achieve recognition for outstanding accomplishments.

At the center of Amgen Volunteers is a new program to recognize 11 outstanding staff volunteers each year who are making a difference with a $5,000 award to the nonprofit where the winning staff members volunteer. The Amgen Foundation will also provide $500 volunteer service grants to eligible nonprofit organizations for every 15 hours volunteered by Amgen staff – up to an annual maximum of $2,000 per full-time staff member and $1,000 per part-time staff member.

According to Jean Lim, President of the Amgen Foundation, the goal with Amgen Volunteers is to “grow this support by recognizing outstanding volunteers through an annual awards program and helping staff get connected in their communities.”
