WORKPLACE GIVING

Workplace giving is a simple and effective way for individuals to make regular donations to the Elijah’s Blessings through automated payroll deductions.

Employees

Workplace giving allows you as an employee to make a regular donation off your gross pay. Your employer sends your donation to us in one lump sum along with other employees’ donations. You can easily claim a deduction for donations in your annual tax return off the information provided by your employer on your employee payment summary. It’s a quick and easy way for you to support the Elijah’s Blessings, and because we receive your donation in a lump sum and don’t need to send you an individual tax receipt, it’s also quick and easy for us to process.


To enroll in workplace giving contact your payroll or human resources manager to find out about your company’s program or for more information please contact elijahsblessings104@gmail.com.

Employers

Elijah’s Blessings is proud to be supported through workplace giving programs at companies and organizations large and small.


Establishing a workplace giving program engages your employees and demonstrates your commitment to corporate social responsibility. A program is easy to set-up and is a simple, efficient way to support your employees’ desire to give back to their community. In addition, implementing a matched giving program – whereby the company matches all or a percentage of employees’ contributions – is a powerful incentive, bringing employees together and boosting morale as well as substantially increasing your combined support.
