Support natural disaster victims through Annual Giving Drive

Dear fellow King County employee:

King County Executive Dow Constantine

In the last month we have witnessed hurricanes tear through Texas, Florida, and the Caribbean as wildfires burned through the Pacific Northwest.  To make it easier for employees to give to non-profit organizations helping people to recover from these recent natural disasters, I have asked the Employee Giving Program to open the Annual Giving Drive early.

During the Annual Giving Drive, you have more options available through workplace giving than any other time of year. You can support victims of these disasters by pledging before the deadline, November 17, 2017, and putting the name of the disaster in the dedication portion of your pledge.

There are three ways to give:

  • Payroll donation: One time, once a month, or twice a month
  • Time donation: Up to three nonprofit organizations
  • Check: Made directly out to the nonprofit

To read more about how to support these disasters alongside your favorite Employee Giving Program nonprofits during the Annual Giving Drive visit www.kingcounty.gov/disastergivingPledge online or download the paper form here.

Hurricanes Harvey and Irma as well as the fires sweeping the west serve as reminders that we all need to be ready to care for ourselves and loved ones in the event of disaster. I encourage you to visit www.makeitthrough.org to see what you can do to prepare yourself and your family for a disaster.

Sincerely,
