Our employees are central to the AOF approach and play a critical role in our grantmaking. From the thousands of hours volunteered by Apollo employees on an annual basis to their ongoing involvement in Citizenship activities and participation on non-profit boards, our people show us every day how passionate they are about making a difference. Our employees play a critical role in the Foundation, from nominating organizations eligible for funding to reviewing and evaluating grants to driving the impact of a grant through ongoing volunteerism and partnership.
We established a Grants Council of 12 employees representing different levels, geographies and businesses. The Council meets regularly to review and evaluate all organizations nominated for funding.
Every grant the Foundation makes will be championed by an employee or a team of employees, who form a “Deal Team” to advance the organization’s mission, foster employee engagement opportunities (such as volunteerism and board service), source skills-based capacity building projects and participate in impact measurement and grant evaluation.
