Starting a workplace employee giving program is simple and free for your company!

WHAT’S REQUIRED OF EMPLOYERS:

  • Assign an employee giving coordinator to oversee the your giving campaign, distribute materials, collect pledge forms, complete an annual employee giving report, and forward pledge form copies to CS and your payroll department.
