Being a part of something as powerful as the VolunteerMatch network means that you’ll often hear about the amazing things individuals, nonprofits and companies are doing to make a difference. Here’s a great example:
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation recently named 24 business finalists for its 15th Annual Corporate Citizenship Awards. The awards program honors businesses for their significant positive impacts in communities around the world. And this year, a whole bunch of VolunteerMatch clients and partners are on the list of honored finalists.
- Congratulations to UnitedHealth Group for being a finalist for Best Corporate Steward in the Large Business category.
- Big kudos to Johnson & Johnson and Microsoft for the Best Commitment to Education Program award.
- Amway’s impressive community work is being recognized as a finalist for Best Community Improvement Program.
- Farmers Insurance Company, as well as our partner Cornerstone OnDemand, Inc., are finalists for Best Disaster Response & Community Resilience Program.
- Both Dow Chemical Company and Qualcomm are finalists for Best Economic Empowerment Program.
- Great job Apollo Education Group for being a finalist for Best Environmental Stewardship Program.
“It’s great to see our clients honored by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation,” says Julie VanDeLinder, VP of Client Services, VolunteerMatch. “While we already know our clients do great things in the community, it’s wonderful to see them in this elite group of Corporate Citizens.”
The winners in each category will be announced on November 20, 2014. But all of these companies are already winners, considering the huge impact they’ve made in their communities and for their employees in all of these different areas.

We’re proud of all of our corporate clients and partners! Congratulations, and keep up the great work.
