WORKPLACE GIVING

WORKPLACE GIVING

Workplace giving offers employees the opportunity to give to the charities they care about as a pre-tax donation, directly from their pay, while they work. It’s easy, it’s effective and it delivers low-cost, efficient and much-needed funding to charities.

For companies, workplace giving is a smart way to demonstrate a strategic commitment to corporate community investment. Employees are provided with an opportunity to connect with the values of the company they work for and an avenue to make a positive difference in society and the environment. The diverse and open selection of charities available through workplace giving also provides an avenue for companies to walk the talk on diversity and inclusion initiatives.

Most importantly, workplace giving delivers a positive financial impact for charities. Workplace giving streamlines the financial management process of corporate donations to charities and reduces administration, while building charities’ supporter base – developing new donor relationships and advocating for important causes and issues, like SNIP.


EMPLOYEE GIVING

Did you know that you can donate to Spay Neuter Idaho Pets seamlessly through payroll deductions? And since companies often match employee contributions, workplace giving provides you with the opportunity to directly influence your company’s philanthropic endeavors. There are many ways local businesses support Spay Neuter Idaho Pets. Ask your HR department if your company participates in these programs and if not, encourage your employer to give back through workplace giving.

EMPLOYEE MATCHING GIFTS

Many generous employers encourage charitable contributions by matching your gift dollar for dollar. Companies such as Albertsons, Amazon, Blue Cross of Idaho, Hewlett Packard, Micron, Microsoft, Scentsy, Simplot, Verizon and many others participate in matching gifts programs and make a positive impact in our community. Check with your company to find out if they offer this great opportunity!

If you have questions about Matching Gifts, please contact Penelope Agosta, Executive Director at penelope@snipidaho.org.


GIFTS OF STOCK

Through a gift of appreciated securities, you the donor will receive one of the most significant tax breaks from the IRS. A donation of securities is a powerful way to support Spay Neuter Idaho Pets, providing you with the satisfaction of advancing the important work of the SNIP Clinic while you receive the following benefits:

  • You will pay no capital gains tax on the securities you choose to donate
  • You will receive an immediate tax deduction for the fair market value of the securities on the date of transfer, regardless of what you initially paid to purchase them
  • Your gift of stock, like cash gifts, can be directed to the general support of the SNIP Clinic programs.

UNITED WAY COMMUNITY SHARES

If your employer participates in a United Way or Community Shares workplace giving campaign, you can support Spay Neuter Idaho Pets through simple payroll deduction! SNIP is proud to be a Community Shares Member Organization, and though we are not listed as a United Way agency, you may select “Donors Choice” and designate your dollars by writing in “Spay Neuter Idaho Pets” on your pledge form.

If you have questions about United Way Community Shares, please contact Penelope Agosta, Executive Director at penelope@snipidaho.org.


CORPORATE VOLUNTEER SERVICE GRANTS

Some employers will give grants to organizations where their employees volunteer. Ask your Human Resources department if this is available at your company and how you can take advantage of this opportunity to help us even more.
