We know you care about your employees, and your employees care about giving back to the community through their employer.
This is an easy way to make charitable donations directly and automatically from your paycheck. When you make this type of gift to Second Harvest Food Bank, you’re minimizing our administrative costs and putting more of your donation to work fighting hunger.
• Convenience & Tax Benefits: You get the convenience of automatic payroll deductions without losing the tax benefits of charitable giving.
• Financially More Manageable: By having a smaller amount of money deducted from your paycheck throughout the year, you can donate a larger amount of money and have a greater impact overall. For example, if you get paid biweekly (26 times throughout the year) and you pledge $38.50 of each paycheck to Second Harvest Food Bank, by the end of the year you will have donated $1,000 to us, which is equivalent to 6,000 meals!
While you can engage employees throughout the year, the holiday giving season is a prime opportunity to tap into their charitable inclinations.
Jeans Day: Everyone loves an opportunity to wear jeans to work for a day! Have employees pay $5 to wear jeans to work for a day, or $20 for a week with all funds raised going to help fight hunger with Second Harvest Food Bank.
