(CNN)The idea of paid paternity leave has hit the national stage as focus shifts from new moms to the whole family unit when a child is born. As companies decide to offer the added benefit to new parents, one company is offering a grant to dads who do not have access to paid paternity leave.
Dove is offering $5,000 grants for dads without access to paid paternity leave
Dove started a Paternity Leave Fund that is an effort to raise over $1 million for dads across America over the next two years, according to their website. The fund will provide fathers who do not have access to paternity leave with $5,000 grants so they can be home to spend time with their new children.
Dove says, "Working dads shouldn't have to choose between their children and a paycheck—because when they take paternity leave, it benefits families, workplaces and communities."
