Workplace Giving 

What is Workplace Giving or Employer Matching Funds?

A Workplace Giving (WPG) or Employer Matching Funds (EMF) program enables you to support non-profit organizations of your choice by giving donating through your employer. This can happen in many different ways. The most common options include (but are not limited to) the following:

  • Recurring payroll deduction (monthly, quarterly, bi-annually)
  • Your company matches employees’ one-time monetary donations
  • Your company matches payroll deductions
  • Your company matches your volunteer hours financially (individuals and/or teams)

How does Workplace Giving benefit you?

Your WPG/EMF donations are tax deductible.

Payroll deductions spread your contribution out over a longer period of time, thereby making your household budgeting easier.

When your employer matches your contribution, the impact of your gift is (usually) doubled. So, not only have you already made a meaningful gift to the PNA, but you also maximized your gift’s impact by having your company contribute on your behalf. A little side note: you can start by simply having your employer match your membership fee to the PNA!

How do you sign up for Workplace-Giving?

That depends! We would love to simply give you a link that could register you for workplace giving at any employer, however, every company has different a different system for their gifts. What they all have in common is that the employee is in the driver’s seat when it comes to establishing and maintaining their participation in the WPG/EMF program.

Here are some good places to start looking to see if you can double your impact with WPG/EMF:

  • Start with your HR department and check if the company engages in workplace giving / donation matching. If you work in a big corporation, you might also look for “Corporate Citizenship” or “Community Engagement” on your employer’s website (this includes local, state and federal government employers).
  • Bookmark the webpage or save the link so you can conveniently access the match request page of your company.
  • If you set up the payroll deduction, remember to ask for the employer match.
