Workplace Campaigns and Corporate Matching Gifts!
We thank each and every one of our partner companies that facilitate workplace campaigns. Employees become educated about local community organizations and have an opportunity to support the nonprofit of their choice. Giving is easy. A small amount is withheld through payroll deductions making it manageable to give a larger gift. Many companies stretch these gifts with dollar-for-dollar matching support. A gift of $150 becomes $300!
A huge Thank You to these champions!
Workplace campaigns and corporate matching gifts allow us to be here for elders who rely on our services. We promote the emotional, social, and physical well-being of older adults through a network of community connections and services.
