It’s October again, which means kids across the country will be gearing up for another exciting Halloween. But did you know that October is also the month when many organizations help their employees with charitable donations?
That’s right – within many company cultures, October is known as “employee giving month”. It’s a great way to generate more revenue for your favorite charity – like the St. Baldrick’s Foundation!
This October, ask your employer for more information about some of the following popular fundraising options – it could make the difference in helping fund vital clinical trials investigating childhood cancers.
Wireless Vision employees know it takes vision to conquer childhood cancers. Through their company-wide campaign, six Wireless Vision locations hosted St. Baldrick’s signature head-shaving events and raised over $43,000!
A growing number of organizations are offering to match the charitable donations made by their employees, effectively doubling their total contribution. That said, some employers may take things a step further by matching gifts at a higher ratio, like 2:1, 3:1, even 4:1 – in essence, it’s possible that for every dollar you contribute, your employer may double, triple, even quadruple your offering!
Please keep in mind that every organization has its own gift-matching policy, so consider asking your human resources representative for more information about how this is handled at your company. You can also use our matching gifts tool to see what’s available at your organization.
