Every year, volunteers contribute more than 1,000 hours to the OCWC. California estimates the current value of a volunteer hour at approximately $35, making your volunteer hours worth more than $35,000 annually. Please report your volunteer hours using the form below.

Turn Your Hours into Dollars for the OCWC

Did you know that many companies now offer a volunteer grant program? These companies offer generous grants to the nonprofit organizations for which their employees volunteer—sometimes a dollar amount per hour of volunteer time, sometimes a fixed amount for a specified number of hours. The companies listed below are just a few examples of those offering volunteer grant programs. Consult with your company’s HR department to see if your employer offers a volunteer grant program, and turn your hours into additional dollars for the OCWC!
