Summer brings a lot of things. Longer days, sunnier skies and perhaps a vacation. It also brings us closer to the time of year many associates with annual workplace giving. While fall seems far away now, it is the perfect opportunity to begin planning and preparations for your charitable giving initiatives and programs.
This week we focus on WPG’s Top 3 for what you, as an employee, can do to make the most of your workplace giving campaign.
- Identify your company’s workplace giving program. When does it run? Does your company offer matching gifts or volunteer programs? Knowing the details around the program allows you to get the most out of your engagement and support.
- Research which charitable organizations are supported in the campaign. Determine if charities that are important to you are on the list. If they aren’t, reach out to your campaign coordinator and inquire how to get your preferred charity included.
- Get Involved! Sharing your connection to your company’s campaign or any of the charities that are supported within it with your colleagues promotes excitement, encouragement, and engagement. Come together to support the communities that you work and live in and benefit from knowing that you made a difference this year.
