For many companies, businesses, and establishments, giving back to the community is a must. The company tends to decide as a whole what types of charities and organizations they wish to give to based on the morals and beliefs of the company. However, many companies aren’t sure how they can donate or how it works.
How Does Workplace Charity Work?
In order to participate in workplace charity to help My Brother’s Keeper continue to help the Irvington and surrounding communities, talk with your supervisor about participating. Once that is decided, your company is able to provide codes for different charities that help to support My Brother’s Keeper. Then, a selected amount will be deducted from paychecks for a year. The codes for My Brother’s Keeper are as follows:
- United Way of Central Maryland (UWCM) Campaign: 4691
- Maryland Charity Campaign (MCC): 4691
- Chesapeake Area Combined Federal Campaign (CFC): 37424
- Combined Charity Campaign of Baltimore City (CCC): 4691
What is the Benefit of Workplace Charity?
So what is the benefit of using a workplace charity campaign to help My Brother’s Keeper achieve their goals of providing meals and employment assistance?
A workplace charity campaign can provide automatic deductions to payroll without losing the tax benefits that come with donating to charities. Employees are also able to help the community without breaking the bank. The program allows each to donate a small amount, no amount is too small, and that will help make a large impact in the end. This method of fundraising is also known to be more effective for charities and organizations than other methods that call for labor and materials.
Never forget that every little bit of contribution can help My Brother’s Keeper help the Irvington and surrounding Southwest areas of Baltimore.
