Many companies offer matching gift programs and / or employee payroll deduction programs which make it easy to donate to your favorite charity. Ask your Human Resources director what is offered at your company.
Employer Matching Gifts
Some generous employers will match your donations to a favorite charity, i.e. if you give $50 to Harmony House, and include a Matching Gift Form with your donation, your company will then donate $50 to Harmony House after the matching gift has been processed. Many businesses post their matching gift forms online to be eco-friendly and save on postage.
Employee Payroll Deductions
Your employer may offer automatic payroll deductions for charity. You designate how much money you want sent to your favorite charity each month, your company deducts it from your paycheck, and they send one check for all Harmony House donations from all their employees each quarter.
