Many companies not only encourage their employees to give to and volunteer time to nonprofits in their communities, but also will match those efforts with dollars and other means of support.
Workplace giving contributes an estimated $5 billion to U.S. charities each year. So if your board members, volunteers or supporters work for companies with a workplace giving program, it can be an additional source of funding. But note that a nonprofit’s access to these programs often must be initiated by an employee.
Workplace giving programs can be set up in a variety of ways. Some of the more popular workplace giving programs offered by corporations are:
- Employee Matching Gifts
- Volunteer Support Programs
- Donations through Payroll Deduction
- Annual Giving Campaigns
If your employer has a matching gift program, you could double—or even triple—the size of your gift to Artz Cure Sarcoma™ Foundation. Simply request and complete a matching gift form from your human resources office.
