Workplace Giving and Payroll Deduction: One of the Best-kept Secrets to Creating Social Impact
By Lindsay J.K. Nichols on February 12, 2019
With numerous donation methods, including check, credit card, and PayPal, and the emergence of new fundraising platforms like Facebook, GoFundMe, and Text2Give over the past decade, there’s no shortage of options for employers and their employees to support the communities in which they live and work. However, so many options can be overwhelming and confusing – to donors as well as the leaders tasked with coordinating their company’s employee giving and corporate philanthropy initiatives. How can a business, of any size, and its employees most effectively raise money for causes they care about, create social change and improve the world around us? The answer to that question is workplace giving, and it is one of the best kept secrets to creating social impact.
While America’s Charities continues to incorporate a variety of donation approaches and methods into our suite of four employee giving technology options, payroll deduction giving (also called workplace giving, employee giving, and recurring giving) remains one of the most cost-efficient ways to support nonprofits. And it’s the driving force behind the success of the companies whose workplace giving campaigns we manage.
Why? What makes payroll deduction giving more beneficial to charities, employee donors, and employers as opposed to other donation payment methods? Get the facts and bring payroll deduction giving to your workplace.
