In addition to investing financially into our state’s communities, we also are committed to providing other Kaiser Permanente Colorado assets and resources to improve community health and overall vibrancy, including the time, talents, and expertise of more than 7,000 employees and physicians.
Every year, Kaiser Permanente Colorado employees provide thousands of hours of volunteerism to help with nonprofit efforts and community projects. These volunteer activities range from refurbishing schools to planting trees in parks to interacting with youth and seniors to supporting community walks/runs and much more. Kaiser Permanente Colorado provides our employees with an innovative volunteer release policy that allows them up to 96 hours per year to volunteer at qualifying nonprofit projects. We also have a volunteer program to place physicians at community clinics.
To help Kaiser Permanente Colorado employees find volunteer opportunities of interest, we have implemented an online resource/database, KPCares, that matches employee skills and enthusiasms with the needs of people and nonprofits in communities.
