N Street Village: What is Workplace Giving?
Nora Wagman: Workplace Giving is an easy way to use payroll deductions to make tax-deductible donations to your favorite non-profits!
NSV: Is it easy to enroll?
NW: It’s extremely easy, you can set it up once and then forget about it. If your employer has a Workplace Giving enrollment period, all you have to do is sign-up to make a monthly or quarterly pledge for the year. Your donation amount is automatically deducted from your paycheck—you no longer have to worry about sending checks, setting up online payments, or tracking for your taxes—all of this is done for you!
NSV: How can I find out if my employer participates in workplace giving?
NW: Many employers offer Workplace Giving, either through their own internal program, an online program (such as Benevity, JustGiving, Global Giving, etc.), or through the United Way/Combined Federal Campaign Fund (N Street’s United Way # is 8281, and our Combined Federal Campaign # is 90946). If you’re still unsure, ask your HR Department!
NSV: Can I make a one-time donation instead?
NW: Yes, you can make one-time donations through any of the above Workplace Giving avenues.
NSV: How can my employer participate in workplace giving?
NW: Many employers also offer matching gifts to the organizations their employees are supporting. Regardless of how you support N Street Village— either through Workplace Giving or volunteer hours, reach out to your HR department to see if they offer matching gifts or service grants. You could double, even triple, the impact that your gift makes in the lives of the women we serve!
NSV: If I have questions about workplace giving, who can I contact?
NW: If you have questions about how to find out if your organization has a Workplace Giving or matching gift program, and how to get set up, please reach out to me, Nora Wagman at firstname.lastname@example.org.
NSV: Would an N Street Village representative be able to come to my workplace and share about other ways to get involved with the Village?
NW: We would love to attend a lunch, women’s committee meeting, or other event at your workplace, to share with your coworkers more about the organization you support! If you would like us to give a presentation to your workplace, please contact Makenzie at email@example.com.
