The annual Employee Giving Drive is underway

The County’s 2016 Annual Employee Giving Drive has begun!

Last year’s drive raised more than $1.75 million for hundreds of nonprofit organizations. This year’s goal is $1.82 million.

This is the power of our workplace giving program. We can harness our individual actions to make a substantial collective impact in areas such as the access to education, food and hunger, and the arts.

The Employee Giving Program is a philanthropic resource for King County employees, and benefits county employees by:

  • Providing prescreened nonprofits
  • Allowing you to plan your giving
  • Providing you the ability to give time (vacation or compensatory hours)
  • Providing anonymity

You may pledge either online in PeopleSoft or with a paper form. Through payroll donations, employees can donate to as many as 20 nonprofits, and contributions can be made bimonthly (first two pay checks each month), monthly (second paycheck each month) or annually (first paycheck in January).

This year’s drive runs from October 3 to November 18. For more information, visit the EGP site. For additional questions, contact your EGP Ambassador, email EmployeeGiving@KingCounty.gov or call 206-263-9405.
