Often companies will double — or even triple — their employees’ charitable contributions, increasing the impact of your gift. Some employers also match gifts made by retirees, spouses, and board members.
Bring Workplace Giving to Your Company
If your employer doesn’t currently offer a workplace giving program, start one! Let your human resources department know you’re interested in giving at work. Copy and paste the following into an email or letter to your HR Director, and replace the bolded sections with the appropriate information.
Dear HR Director (or Name),
One of the things I value most about [COMPANY NAME] is its commitment to community, and that is why I would like to suggest that [COMPANY NAME] start a workplace giving campaign.
Workplace giving allows employees to make automated tax-deductible gifts through payroll deductions, and it is the highest yielding, lowest cost method of fundraising for nonprofit organizations. In addition to boosting our company’s reputation, workplace giving demonstrates [COMPANY NAME] support for the charitable interests of its employees, encourages teamwork and allows employees to assume ownership of a visible and important organization or event.
Being able to give to charitable organizations that I care about through payroll deduction at the workplace is important to me, and I would appreciate it if our company would offer it.
