Thomas F. Madison, Stephanie Ward, Kent Royalty

Abstract
This cross-sectional study examines the association of employees‟ organizational commitment and employer sponsored volunteerism (intra-organizational volunteerism) in the context of a national volunteer program, the IRS sponsored Volunteer Income Tax Program (VITA). Study results indicate that employees who volunteered as a result of encouragement by corporate employers, governmental employers, or not for profit organizations reported increased organizational commitment to the organizations encouraging them to participate in the program. Among participants who were specifically encouraged by employers to participate in VITA, responses were significantly related to satisfaction, education, and years employed.
