Many businesses and corporations offer workplace giving programs, where you can automatically have a percentage of your paycheck go directly to a charity of your choice. In addition, many companies offer “matching gifts,” where donations are matched by 50%, 100%, or even 200%!
Many of our donors love to support Humane Society Silicon Valley (HSSV) through their workplace giving program, as it’s an easy way to budget their gifts — their donation is automatically deducted from their paycheck. Donors still receive gift acknowledgment letters for tax purposes (if HSSV is notified of the donor’s name and address), and the contributions are listed on their W2 form. Please note if you donate to HSSV through United Way, a processing fee is initially deducted, and HSSV’s amount received is reduced.
Double Your Impact
Many employers will match charitable donations made by their employees throughout the year.
Some companies may also give a matching gift for employees’ volunteer efforts.
Requesting a matching gift from your company is a simple way for your gift to go a long way in supporting our life-saving mission. All it takes is submitting a matching gift request to the employer via workplace intranet or printing a form available from the Human Resources department.
Please be sure to list the name of the person in your household whose name is on the donation so we can easily confirm the gift for matching.
