If you work for a company, organization or the federal government, chances are you’ve had the opportunity to participate in a workplace giving program. Workplace giving is an easy and efficient way to make tax-deductible donations to support Girls Inc. of Santa Fe, typically with donations taken directly out of your paycheck. (Donations via credit card, vacation time and other methods might also be available depending on your employer’s program).
Ask your employer if they have a workplace giving program!
Convenience & Tax Benefits:
- You get the convenience of automatic payroll deductions without losing the tax benefits of charitable giving.
- Financially More Manageable: By having a smaller amount of money deducted from your paycheck throughout the year, you can donate a larger amount of money and have a greater impact overall. For example, if you get paid biweekly (26 times throughout the year) and you pledge $38.50 of each paycheck to a charity, by the end of the year you will have donated $1,000 to that charity
- Matching Gifts: Some employers will offer to match your contributions up to a specified amount. This leverages your employer’s philanthropic support and maximizes your gift to the causes you care about.
- Cost-efficient and Sustainable Fundraising: Workplace giving is more cost-effective and efficient for charities to raise funds than other fundraising methods. The cost of participating in a workplace giving campaign is far below the cost that would be incurred if participating charities had to launch any type of campaign to try to raise an equal amount of money. Your donation enables charities to spend more time and resources on services and programs rather than elaborate fundraising.
