Employees helping employees.
The Verizon V Team has always been a family. And when times are tough, family always has your back. The VtoV Employee Relief Fund is a charity that provides aid for Verizon employees displaced from their homes due to a natural or personal emergency - such as fire, flood, severe weather or domestic violence.
Since its inception in 2013, VtoV has provided over $3.5 Million in grants to more than 3,000 Verizon employees around the world. The grants are used toward food, clothing, shelter and other necessities during life-changing disasters.
V Teamers need your support.
While we’re incredibly proud of all that we have been able to do to support employees over the years, we need help from every employee! VtoV is entirely supported by employee donations and the Verizon Foundation’s generous matching gift program with 100% of all donations going to employees who need it most.
The VtoV Employee Relief Fund is our internal public charity funded by donations from Verizon employees. If an employee is unable to gain access to, or live in, their primary residence due to a catastrophic event, VtoV provides approved applicants with grants up to $5,000 for qualified personal expenses (food, shelter, clothing, etc.)
Donations to the VtoV Fund are tax- deductible and eligible for Verizon Foundation’s Matching Gifts program.
VtoV is managed by e4e Relief, a non-profit organization that administers charities for several large corporations. When clicking on “Donate” or “Apply for a Grant,” you’ll be directed to the e4e Relief website.
100% of every donation goes directly to help a V Teamer in need, because Verizon pays all administrative fees.
Note to Non-US Employees: Employees worldwide may participate in VtoV, either by donating (via credit card only) or submitting a grant application. Due to varying laws, taxes and regulations, grant-approved employees are part of an alternate process that is not administered by e4e Relief (details available upon request.)
