Giving to the community is part of the H&R Block culture. The H & R Block Foundation supports that culture by hosting several
programs that encourage and recognize the participation of associates who help improve the communities where they live and work.
Cash for Champions
The H & R Block Foundation recognizes teamwork and group efforts and leverages associates' volunteerism with cash. When an eligible
associate volunteers a specific number of hours to a nonprofit organization within a 12-month period, the Foundation matches that
commitment with a gift to the organization.
The H & R Block Foundation Matching Gift Program
Associates and board members of H&R Block and The H & R Block Foundation individually give thousands of dollars to support
private secondary schools, colleges and universities. In support of their generosity, the Foundation matches these gifts.
Outstanding Community Service Awards
Every day, H&R Block associates make outstanding contributions to the communities where they live and work. The H & R Block Foundation recognizes associate contributions annually with The Henry W. Bloch National Award for Outstanding Community Service. Associates are nominated for their extraordinary volunteer efforts in support of their community and the corporation.
The Henry W. Bloch National Award for Outstanding Community Service is named in honor of Henry W. Bloch, co-founder and honorary chairman of H&R Block and chairman emeritus of The H & R Block Foundation, who models exceptional corporate and civic leadership in his community. Each year, The H & R Block Foundation recognizes associates for their excellent volunteer service to local organizations and programs that have made a difference in their community.
