Volunteer Time Off is a Pillar of Elevations

Elevations is known for the good work we do in our community, whether it’s supporting Elevations Foundation’s community grants and scholarships, partnering with local nonprofits or sponsoring events in the community. We actively reinvest in the places we all call home. Our Volunteer Time Off program for employees is one arm of that much bigger initiative. Giving Elevations employees volunteer time off in addition to their paid time off is just one way we make a positive impact in our communities.

At Elevations, full-time employees receive 16 hours of paid volunteer time off each year, and we encourage our employees to utilize every hour because we want to ensure our members and our communities thrive. Our employees can choose to use their VTO with any of our eligible organizations. We do this to ensure that we are effective with our goals and align with our strategy.

We’re always trying to increase our impact in the community. In 2018, Elevations employees volunteered more than 2,500 hours, and we hope to surpass that milestone in 2019. In fact, we’ve planned a whole month of volunteering this June for our employees with area nonprofits in Broomfield, Boulder, Louisville, Loveland and Fort Collins. We’re calling this initiative Prosperity Month!

Our goal is to give back 1,000 volunteer hours to our Front Range communities with our Prosperity Month initiative, and we are well on our way to that goal. You can even join us as we volunteer from June 3 – 29. We have established specific volunteer times and dates with five of our nonprofit partners:

  • A Precious Child
  • Community Food Share
  • Cultivate
  • Food Bank for Larimer County
  • Poudre Education Association in conjunction with the Poudre School District

We want to invite our members to sign up to volunteer with us. You can check out all the dates and sign up to volunteer during Prosperity Month here. We hope we see you in June! If you want to find out more about the good work Elevations does in the community, please read our Prosperity Report.
