Corporate Year of Service

Volunteers of America Chesapeake Year of Service Partnership Program

Volunteers of America Chesapeake (VOAC) will offer interested corporate and community partners the opportunity to participate in the newly established Year of Service Partnership Program.  This Program enables corporations to identify quarterly opportunities that they would like to commit their time and financial resources towards.  The idea for this program arose from the fact that too often businesses and nonprofits alike find a shared enthusiasm for purpose but struggle to find opportunities that satisfy both party’s needs and/or fall short of engaging employees or members in a meaningful way.  VOAC greatly appreciates the gift of time that so many businesses offer up, and just as with gifts of money, we aim to be good stewards of these precious resources.  

The Year of Service Partnership Program is open to all businesses and community groups that have the capacity to fulfill quarterly obligations. Those who are interested in participating in the Year of Service Partnership Program will sit down with a member of the VOAC Development Team for an introductory meeting.  At this time, VOAC will present available opportunities throughout our calendar year including: Special Events, Corporate Sponsorship Opportunities, Day of Service projects and the ongoing needs of our organization. 

We will also discuss the business/group’s giving philosophy along with any specific engagements they would like to take part in or help create.  After matching corporate requests with VOAC’s needs, we will determine together at least four engagements throughout the calendar year.  This year-long partnership will enable both parties to become acquainted with each other’s needs, bring clarity to activity calendars, and will cultivate an understanding that allows resources and skills to be gifted with first-hand knowledge of how these resources will be put to the best use throughout our communities. 

In addition to these four plotted engagements, we ask that participants consider sponsoring one of our events at a level they feel comfortable.

VOAC is privileged to have the opportunity to help uplift our area’s most vulnerable residents.  Our years of success in doing so have been made possible by the numerous supporters who share in our vision and commitment to inspire self-reliance, dignity and hope through health and human service. We are always thrilled to recognize our corporate and community partners and will do so for participants in our Year of Service Partnership Program.
