How we support our volunteers
To make their efforts even more meaningful, the Alliant Energy Foundation's Volunteer Program recognizes and supports these dedicated volunteers by providing grants to non-profit organizations in the volunteer's name. In 2014, employees and retirees of Alliant Energy were awarded $126,800 in recognition of their 96,700 volunteer hours.
The Points of Light Foundation places a value of $22.55 on each volunteer hour. This equates to a financial impact of more than $2.2 million going back into our communities through the volunteer service of our employees and retirees.
Matching Gifts Program
The Alliant Energy Foundation also offers employees and retirees a Matching Gifts Program, providing dollar-for-dollar matches to donations to qualifying non-profit associations.
In 2014, employees, retirees and Board Members of Alliant Energy Corporation enhanced their generosity with over 3,500 gift requests to the Matching Gifts Program. Through this remarkable partnership with the Alliant Energy Foundation, over $1 million was contributed to charitable organizations.
