Payroll deductions is the easiest way to participate. Each employee picks an amount and frequency they desire as well as the type of giving, and it is deducted each pay period. The amount is added to their T4, so there is no need to track receipts. Donations start at $2 a paycheck.
EFFICIENT & EFFECTIVE
Many organizations will hold events to supplement their workplace campaign. Events can be held anytime during the year, regardless of when you run your campaign.
Workplace events can be one time, once a year events, or ongoing. They range from potlucks, to poker tournaments, to jean days. Our team has ideas to assist you in your workplace event. It is an easy way to work as a team, and low commitment, while still contributing to our community.
Most companies that participate match their employees contributions between 25% and 100%, this helps employees feel engaged with their employer, in fact employees give 9% more when matched by an employer! This also creates a visible philanthropic profile for your business in our community though our FB, media releases and website, as well as big cheque and kick off events.
