Workplace giving is a powerful tool that is available to support causes and organizations you care about. It is sometimes referred to as “employee matching gifts”, and each year, billions of dollars are donated to charities such as WIN through workplace giving programs.
It is an easy and efficient way to make a tax-deductible donation through automatic payroll deductions, and since many employers often match the employee contributions, workplace giving gives you the opportunity to directly influence your company’s philanthropic endeavors, and double your donation!
This is truly a wonderful way to increase your giving, so please check with your employer and ask about workplace giving and employee matching gifts. It’s that easy. Here are just a few examples of corporations that participate in these programs:
- JC Penny
- UBS Financial
- Johnson & Johnson
- The Gap Corporation
- Fidelity Investments
Check online with your company’s website, or contact your Human Resources Department for information on how you may participate in this wonderful opportunity.
