Dove Wants To Give Dads $5K To Stay Home With The Kids

More big companies, including Starbucks CVS, and Walmart have recently expanded or created new family leave policies, but in the U.S. only 15% of workers have access to paid family leave. But while employees wait for their bosses to add the benefit, one company is offering a grant to dads who don’t have access to paid paternity leave. Dove started a Paternity Leave Fund that will give $5,000 to fathers so they can afford to be home to spend time with their new children.

Dove is trying to raise over $1-million for their Paternity Leave Fund for dads across the country over the next two years,according to their website.The fund will give these special $5,000 grants to dads so they can have paid paternity leave, even if their jobs don’t offer it.

“Working dads shouldn’t have to choose between their children and a paycheck,” Dove says, “because when they take paternity leave, it benefits families, workplaces, and communities.”
