Workplace giving is a means by which employees donate to charitable organizations of their choice, primarily through payroll pledges. Donations through payroll pledges enable Earth Ministry to spend less time fundraising and more time working toward a healthier environment.
How to Give at Your Workplace:
Corporate workplaces: If you work for one of many corporations that include Earth Share of Washington in your workplace giving campaign, find Earth Share of Washington on your payroll pledge form and write in Earth Ministry as a specific designation.
United Way Campaigns: If Earth Ministry is not listed by your employer in your workplace giving campaign, you can designate Earth Ministry in the “Specific Organization” or “donor option” section of your United Way pledge form. Ask your campaign coordinator how to do this if it is not clear.
Government workplaces: If you work for one of the many government agencies in our area such as the State of Washington, state universities, the federal government, City of Seattle, King County, as well as many other counties and cities, you can find Earth Ministry listed in the campaign catalog. Once you have found us, write our code number on your payroll pledge form. If your agency has no catalog, ask your campaign coordinator how you may designate your gift to Earth Ministry.
Here are 2 ways you can give to Earth Ministry through your workplace giving campaign:
Payroll Deduction: By far the most popular and easiest way to support Earth Ministry year-round, you instruct your employer to deduct a certain amount from your paycheck each pay period.
One-time payroll deduction: Instruct your employer to deduct a single amount from one paycheck, or simply write a personal check to Earth Ministry and present it to your workplace giving campaign manager.
