Did you know that employees who are involved in employer-sponsored community activity are 30% more likely to continue working for that employer and help it be a success? (Towers Perrin Global Workforce Study 2007-2008)
Workplace giving is a simple and effective way for employees to donate to charity through automated payroll deductions.It’s the most cost-efficient way to give as it reduces administration costs for charities as they only process one donation from each employer. This allows more of your valuable contribution to reach the hands of those who need it most. Many employers choose to match donations, which greatly increases the impact.
