Making a Difference

We believe in investing in our community to make it a better place. It’s as simple as that. And as a 100% employee-owned company, we have the power to do so, by choosing to donate to organizations focused on improving life for the people they serve.

Who do we support?

We donate to organizations with clear missions that focus on areas of needs that match our company values. The areas of need we prefer to donate to include organizations focused on helping:

  • Veterans
  • Individuals with disabilities
  • Families
  • Education
  • Children

Exclusions

We choose not to financially support some organization or causes, including:

  • Political fundraising Churches or religious groups
  • For-profit organizations
  • Fundraising events that benefit individuals or individual causes
  • Organizations whose mission do not align with our company values
  • Organizations outside of the communities VGM calls home—typically beyond 30 miles our office locations
  • School extra-curricular activities, i.e., booster club, post prom, class trips

Request Deadlines

We review donation requests once per month. Please submit your request no later than 60 days prior to your program or function. You will receive an email response in four to six weeks regarding the status of your request. We may request a site visit to meet with you in person and learn more about your organization.

What to Expect if Your Request is Approved

If we choose to donate to your organization, we’d love to share your story with our employee owners and encourage you to share information about our donation as well. You will receive more information about this process in the acceptance notification email.
