Employee Giving and Volunteering
Who Benefits and How
Intuit matches employees' donations to qualified organizations, offers employees paid time off to volunteer for eligible projects and funds employee-nominated grants.

In 1995, a group of San Diego employees kicked off the program by recycling soda cans and buying bicycles for Toys for Tots.

Today, the toy drive has grown into an annual event and Intuit employees give to and volunteer for hundreds of projects in the United States and Canada, including these:
