Where can I learn more about workplace giving?

Each year, it is estimated that nearly $5 billion is given to U.S. charities through workplace giving campaigns. These giving programs can provide benefits for both the nonprofit recipients and employee contributors.

Workplace giving programs can be set up in a variety of ways. Six of the more popular workplace giving programs offered by corporations are, according to Double the Donation:

  • Giving through Automatic Payroll Deductions
  • Employee Matching Gifts
  • Disaster Relief Grants
  • Internal Employee Fundraising Campaigns
  • Employee Volunteer Grants
