Thank you for your interest in the Give Back Kansas Challenge!  We are excited to coordinate the challenge, an eight-week competition to engage Kansans in employer-supported volunteering. This challenge is intended to recognize the volunteer hours that your employees complete during the challenge window.

As an employer, you are in a perfect position to encourage your employees to participate.  Research of employer volunteer programs has shown a positive impact on businesses and organizations, including improved employee engagement, organizational commitment, job satisfaction, and retention.

Competing in the challenge is a great chance for you to see how volunteering can positively affect your employees and company. It doesn’t matter how many employees you have – EVERY organization can participate! 

Employers with the highest average number of volunteer hours per employee will be awarded a $1,000 donation to a charity of your choice.
