If you work for a company, organization or the federal government, chances are you’ve had the opportunity to participate in a workplace giving program. Workplace giving is an easy and efficient way to make tax-deductible donations to the charities you care about with donations taken directly out of your paycheck.
The Collective Power of Workplace Giving:
Whether you pledge $1 or $50 per paycheck through workplace giving, your support can make all the difference when you combine your charitable contribution with the collective generosity of your peers and employees from companies all across the globe. And because charities know how much money they can expect to receive from workplace giving donations, they can plan how to use your contribution more strategically and make a stronger impact.
Recurring donations are particularly helpful because it means charities can focus their efforts providing assistance where it is needed most around the world, rather than spending time and resources on fundraising.
Thanks to contributions made by you and employees all over the country, roughly $5 billion is raised through workplace giving each year, empowering America’s Charities and our nonprofit members to address a range of causes including education, human rights, hunger, poverty, animal services, research, health services, disaster recovery and support for veterans and law enforcement.
On behalf of our alliance of 130 local, national and global charities – thank you for your support!
Is your donation really enough to ‘make a difference’?
Yes! Take the following example. While you may only think about the amount you’re donating to a charity this year, there are thousands of other employees who are donating a similar amount. And when you do the math, your contribution truly adds up! Together, we are able to make a difference.
