In our previous blog discussing workplace charity, we discussed how businesses and organizations can help give back to their community through different campaigns. Now that you know how to get your business involved in workplace campaigns, it is important to learn more about the charities that you could potentially be giving to.
United Way of Central Maryland
This organization understands how much of a problem poverty is throughout the community. They are working hard to help families throughout Baltimore City as well as the surrounding counties gain the fundamentals in order to live a life of self-sufficiency. The United Way believes that the three main building blocks that are needed to reach this goal are education, health, and financial stability.
Maryland Charity Campaign
This program provides the chance for employees of the state to participate in workplace charities through payroll deduction. There are currently almost 700 charities within the MCC. Charities must submit an application to the MCC, which will be viewed and approved by the Office of the Secretary of State.
Chesapeake Area Combined Federal Campaign
The CFC is currently the only solicitation of Federal employees within their place of employment that is authorized. This is another organization that uses the convenience of payroll deduction to allow Federal employees the chance to help charities within their community make a difference.
Combined Charity Campaign of Baltimore City
This campaign allows city employees and retirees to donate to local charities through payroll deductions.
