Verizon Foundation Grants Give More Than $66 Million to Nonprofits in 2011.

Health & Beauty Close-Up February 8, 2012 The Remote Area Medical (RAM) clinic, an initiative of the University of Virginia, provides free primary and specialty care, such as mammography and colon cancer screening and referrals, through telemedicine links — thanks to support from the Verizon Foundation and others.

Working with the University of Virginia to support the clinic is one example of how the foundation helped improve the quality of life for people last year, the group said.

In 2011, the foundation awarded more than $66 million to nonprofit organizations throughout the U.S. focused on advancing health care, domestic violence prevention, education and sustainability. go to web site foundation grants

“The Verizon Foundation is focused on seeking ways to further leverage the power of technology to address the most critical societal issues,” said Rose Stuckey Kirk, the foundation’s president. “We’re proud to play a role in helping people in the communities we work and live to meet the promise of a better tomorrow.” The group noted some of the programs funded by the Verizon Foundation grants last year:

To inspire teachers across the country, the Verizon Foundation’s Thinkfinity Education Speaker Series brought leaders in education, science and business to an online community of teachers (the Thinkfinity.org community).

Verizon has long been working to reduce its energy consumption and carbon footprint throughout its networks and buildings, including its Premium Data Centers, which serve the company’s most important customers. To help find solutions to further reduce energy consumption and protect the environment, the foundation also provides funds for research and works closely with universities.

At Cornell University, for example, the foundation is supporting a project that focuses on achieving immediate energy efficiency results by targeting short-term problem areas, and pursuing overall energy-efficiency gains throughout an entire facility by developing best practices and models for HVAC, lighting, and other energy-relevant devices and infrastructure. Cornell expects these projects will have a broader impact on how the next generation resolves the complex trade-offs involved in energy consumption, sustainability and performance. site foundation grants

The foundation — in partnership with the NFL Players Association and A Call To Men — developed Training Camps for Life, a program that seeks to educate students about teen relationship violence and how to maintain healthy relationships.

While the Verizon Foundation is focused on funding and developing programs on education, domestic violence prevention and using technology to deliver or enhance health care, Verizon’s employees have been and continue to be active in volunteerism. In 2011, Verizon employees volunteered more than 670,000 hours to support nonprofit organizations. The foundation supported these efforts by awarding a $750 grant to each nonprofit organization where a Verizon employee volunteers 50 hours or more to the organization during the year. These grants totaled $5 million for 2011.

Additionally, the foundation matched donations made by Verizon employees and eligible retirees, up to $6,000 per employee, Last year, the foundation provided $8 million in matching funds.

“We are doing our part to fill some of life’s gaps,” said Kirk. “We are deploying our philanthropic dollars and the assets of Verizon to drive meaningful societal change to help communities and individuals. I commend our employees who will continue their volunteerism to support and meet the needs of their community. We also look forward to continuing our support of vital programs in 2012 and to further enhance them by using the innovative power of Verizon’s technology and network.” More information:
