The Foundation launched the Dollars for Doers program in 2012 to recognize the people of PwC for their volunteerism and reward the nonprofit organizations they support through matching grants. This program provides additional funding to eligible charities where PwC individuals donate at least 25 hours of their time. The Foundation’s grants will match the donated volunteer hours – up to $2,500 per volunteer per year ($1,500 for 100 hours of service, $500 for referring up to 4 people and $500 for a race or event). Eligible volunteer activities include tutoring, mentoring, providing financial management advice, and other hands-on activities that advance the mission of the charity.
