Giving Auto Pilot NoText

Put your giving on autopilot with workplace giving and you could escape with Kenmore Air

“Each year, billions of dollars are donated to America’s charities through workplace giving campaigns. Workplace giving is an easy and efficient way to make tax-deductible donations to charities through payroll contributions. Together with your company, you can work to benefit your community by providing a much-needed stream of revenue to charities. Chances are that if you work at a corporation or for the federal government, you’ve had the opportunity to participate in one of these programs.
While workplace giving was designed to improve America’s charities’ efficiencies, benefits exist for both the employee and participating charity. For the employee, these programs offer the convenience of automatic payroll deductions without losing the tax benefits of charitable giving. Since employers often match employee contributions, workplace giving provides the employee with the opportunity to directly influence their company’s philanthropic endeavors. For the charity, even a small pledge from an employee makes an impact when it is increased by the employer’s matching funds.- (Guide To Giving In The Workplace, April 17, 2006)


Many local organizations offer payroll deductions or matching gift programs to support local charities like the Northshore Schools Foundation.
