Verizon Foundation

The Verizon Foundation is in the business of improving lives in literacy, knowledge and a readiness for the 21st Century.

Eligible organizations seeking grants from the Verizon Foundation must be prepared to track and report program outcomes as well as specific results that demonstrate measurable human impact. In the grant application, organizations must indicate what outcomes are targeted through programming and what results, as specified on the grant application, the organization will measure.

The Verizon Foundation targets their philanthropic investments to partners and programs that achieve meaningful outcomes and measurable results in specific areas within each of their Funding Priorities. Grant applicants are required to select one or more outcomes and results for grants in each of their Funding Priorities.

It is best if your chapter has Verizon employees in your membership. However, BETF is willing to partner with any interested chapter. Please review the website to determine if this funding source is a good fit for your chapter.
