Employee Giving/Matching Gifts
Many companies offer matching gift programs that double the impact of your financial contribution. Check with your company’s Human Resource Department for policies and procedures on matching gifts.
Dollars for Doers
Corporate volunteer grants, also known as Dollars for Doers grants, are programs established by companies to encourage their employees to get involved in community service.
Through volunteer grant programs, a company gives money to nonprofit organizations based on how many hours its employees spend volunteering. Nonprofit organizations benefit from the employee’s service and from the additional grant the company awards them.
Check with your Human Resources Department. Some companies that offer this program include: Verizon, Wal-Mart, Wachovia, Best Buy, Becton Dickinson, Kohl’s, Time Warner, Sam’s Club, Morgan Stanley, and many more!
Host a Fundraiser
Community events are a great way to raise awareness and collect material goods or financial contributions for ECF while enjoying the company of neighbors and friends. To share your ideas and discuss the possibilities, call or email your Regional Director.
Dress Down Day
Dress Down Day is an easy and fun way to fundraise and build awareness at your school or place of work. Also known as “tag days” or “denim days”, Dress Down Days are designated opportunities for faculty and students or employees to dress more casually in return for a charitable contribution.
If your school or business would be interested in participating in a Dress Down Day, please email or telephone your nearest Regional Center.
ECF has helped me tremendously with the support of my Caseworker, Eileen, as well as the volunteers with the holiday wish lists and in making sure Ty had a wonderful birthday every year. And when times were really hard, ECF helped out with meals and food. I don’t think I would have made it through without having to talk to someone who understood. Thank you ECF
