Employee engagement ideas for your workplace
Payroll deduction gifts
Make giving easy by donating directly from your salary. This is a simple way to support clean water projects and have a really big impact. The way it works is up to you; you deduct the amount you want at whatever frequency you want directly from your salary. Payroll giving is a great way to spread that gift over time, providing WaterAid with a steady stream of income and providing you with a more manageable deduction.
How? Every company has its own process for signing up. Contact your Human Resources team and find out how your company does it. If you need any information from WaterAid, you can contact Julie, our Corporate Development Manager.
If your company matches gifts made to non-profits, donating through your payroll is the easiest way to secure that match and double your impact.
If you donate $10 per monthly payroll to WaterAid, by the end of the calendar year, that would total $240 with your company’s match. $240 can pay for clean water for 12 people!
Combined Federal Campaign + WaterAid
WaterAid is proud to participate in the Combined Federal Campaign giving and we are honored to receive donations from many of you who serve the Federal government. If you are looking to donate to WaterAid through the CFC, you can do so by using WaterAid’s CFC #58438.
Employer matched giving
Getting your gift matched by your company is a fantastic way to double or triple your impact at no extra cost to you- and a very simple way to help more people get access to WASH.
Many companies offer to match their staff's donations on a one-to-one or two-to-one basis. In fact, approximately 65% of the Fortune 500 companies have matching gift programs.
