Giving at Work
Workplace giving is a convenient and easy way to help Food & Water Watch ensure the food, water and fish we consume is safe, accessible and sustainably produced. There are a variety of workplace giving programs: some companies will match your donations to Food & Water Watch, while others will allow you to make a simple payroll deduction through different workplace giving campaigns (such as the Combined Federal Campaign CFC for federal workers).
Ask your employer if these programs are available to you.
Combined Federal Campaign
Combined Federal Campaign (CFC): The Combined Federal Campaign is the largest workplace giving campaign in the world. The CFC is a great opportunity for federal employees to make a difference. Simply designate Food & Water Watch for your Combined Federal Campaign contribution during 2011. Look for CFC number: 17460.
Food & Water Watch is a member of EarthShare, a nationwide network of America's leading non-profit environmental and conservation organizations that works to promote environmental education and charitable contributions through workplace giving campaigns. EarthShare provides environmentally conscious employees and workplaces with the opportunity to support hundreds of environmental groups through a charitable giving drive. Employees who contribute to EarthShare can specify that their entire contribution benefit Food & Water Watch. Alternatively, you can give a general contribution to EarthShare and your donation will be divided among the environmental groups EarthShare benefits.
Workplace Matching Gifts
Hundreds of companies have employee matching gifts programs. Check with your human resources department about whether your contribution to Food & Water Watch can be doubled or even tripled by your employer. It's an easy way to make your dollars go further to support our work. When you send us your donation, simply include your company’s matching gift form and we’ll do the rest.
