Your employer may strongly believe in employee-directed giving, which provides you the opportunity to increase the impact of your own gift and influence how your company's giving funds are directed.
Make Gifts through Payroll
If your employer participates in a United Way workplace giving program, you can make monthly pre-tax contributions that will have a substantial impact on the lives of women and girls. Ask about designating your gift to the Women's Fund.
Increase Your Gift with a Corporate Match
Many companies have matching gift programs that will double individual tax-deductible contributions made by their employees. Some programs will match your monthly payroll deductions as well as a one-time gift. Check with your personnel office about your employer's program. They will give you a matching gift form that you can fill out and send with your contribution to:

Other Employee-Directed Giving Opportunities
Many corporations encourage their employees to deepen their community connections by offering “paid time off” for volunteer work, matching a department fundraiser, or promoting employee-directed mini-grants. Check with your employer to learn about the full range of giving programs available.
