Workplace Giving – A Valued Tradition
One of the most significant resources American employers offer to address community needs is the opportunity for employees to give to charitable causes at the workplace. Our country has a long tradition of conducting employee workplace giving campaigns to address the social concerns of communities and respond to the charitable interests of employees. This time-honored practice provides nearly $4 billion annually – primarily through payroll deduction. It is the highest yielding and the lowest cost method of fund raising for nonprofit organizations.
Being able to give to charitable organizations through payroll deduction at the workplace is important to employees and has a strong connection to giving. Contributions made by individuals through payroll deduction are estimated to be between four and six times greater than gifts or those made through other means.
