Employee Giving

Many employers make it easy to give to charity by enabling their employees to donate directly from their paychecks through organizations like Benevity or United Way. Check with your employer to find out more information regarding your company’s employee giving program.

 

Corporate Matching

How can you amplify the impact of your gift? Look into ways to maximize your generosity, while still aligning with your financial comfort zone. Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match any charitable contributions made by their employees. Some companies also match gifts made by retirees and/or spouses. If your company is eligible, request a matching gift from your employer, complete, sign and send it with your gift. We will do the rest!

Employee Volunteer Grant Programs

Does your company recognize employees and retirees for the good work they do in their communities? Many companies celebrate the incredible contributions of their employees who choose to volunteer by donating to the charitable organization of that employee’s choice. Canada Life, RBC, Scotia Bank, 3M, and Pricewaterhouse Coopers are employers who participate in the Employee Volunteer Grant Program. Check and see if your company has this kind of program. If so, request an application form to help support your work with Defeat Duchenne Canada.
