Fowler Automotive Volunteer Information

Fowler encourages our employees to engage in their communities through our Volunteer Incentive Program (VIP). Below, we've highlighted just a few of the many non-profits in our community who rely on volunteers as a starting place to plug in.

Fowler employees may use VIP for volunteering if eligible for the Voluntary Incentive Program. Employees accrue VIP paid time off in one-half day increments (equivalent 4 hours) per month each anniversary year based on the employee's date of hire, for a total of 6 days per anniversary year. Employees must request, in advance, any VIP paid time off in writing.
