H&R Block's 10,000 offices and more than 70,000 tax professionals find unique ways to volunteer, give back, and connect people to possibility -- ultimately making every block better.

We’re working with Nextdoor, the neighborhood hub, asking Americans to nominate inspiring improvement projects for their community. In our first year, we received more than 2,000 submissions from neighbors in all 50 states.
