3M has a Volunteer Match program in which they will donate $500 to any organization for which a 3M employee or retiree has volunteered at least 25 hours in a calendar year.
(Note – if you volunteer with more than 1 organization, and exceed 25 hours with each, you’ll need to decide who gets the donation. 3M will only give to one organization per volunteer per year.)
This 25 hour threshold translates to 6 or more boat trips for each person over the course of the season. Volunteer service is not limited to trips but also would include attending monthly Board Meetings, State delegate meetings, Fundraising Events over the year (fish fry’s etc…) or attending an annual training meeting held in the Spring.
The 3M volunteer match is a very generous gift to LGF each year and helps sustain an organization. The application for the 3M match is done on-line, and is pretty simple.
