If your favorite nonprofit wasn’t in last year’s Annual Giving Drive, now is the time to make sure they get in for this year.
All nonprofits that turn in a complete, on-time application by April 30, 2015, and meet all of the eligibility requirements, can participate in the upcoming 2015 Annual Giving Drive and be eligible to receive payroll and time donations.
“By being in the program nonprofits gain exposure and access to 13,000+ King County employees, payroll donations, which statistically are three to six times larger than one-time check gifts because you can spread them out, as well as time donations, and it is incredibly efficient,” said Junelle Kroontje, Employee Giving Program Administrator. “They benefit from our very low program costs allowing them to maximize gifts even further, and can harness the power of collective giving and community relationships.”
Completed applications have started to roll in, including submissions from Chimpanzee Sanctuary Northwest, Kubota Garden Foundation, Sarvey Wildlife Sanctuary and Wellspring Family Services.
Here’s what some of last year’s participants thought:
“We love the King County Employee Giving Program; you are our largest workplace giving program donor.” ~ Camp Ten Trees.
“Donations from King County Employees are often the only funding source we have available for those needs that our usual contracts and grant funding doesn’t cover such as bus fare, tools needed for a job, a motel voucher for a family and other basic needs.” Seattle Indian Center
“This King County program, provides our small, donor-supported nonprofit with a regular, planned revenue source, allowing us to keep working on behalf of the citizens of Washington state.” Economic Opportunity Institute
Make sure your favorite nonprofit doesn’t miss out! Get them to complete this year’s application by April 30, 2015.
