While workplace giving was designed to improve America’s charities’ efficiencies, benefits exist for both the employee and participating charity.
For the employee, these programs offer the convenience of automatic payroll deductions without losing the tax benefits of charitable giving. Since employers often match employee contributions, workplace giving provides the employee with the opportunity to directly influence their company’s philanthropic endeavors.
For the charity, even a small pledge from an employee makes an impact when it is increased by the employer’s matching funds. — Charity Navigator
