Workplace giving is a popular and easy way that enables organizations to help their employees get involved in philanthropic giving. Workplace giving is a voluntary program allowing employees to donate money on a regular basis to your Children's Miracle Network Hospital via automatic payroll deductions. The program is tax efficient: the donation amount is taken on a pre-tax basis from the employee’s gross salary for each pay period. Companies are also encouraged to match employee contributions and can participate in any number of grassroots fundraising campaigns simultaneously. We can work with your human resources department and accounting department to set up the monthly deductions, making it quick and simple to get started.
Round Up for Miracles
Round Up for Miracles, a retail fundraising program, encourages consumers to round up their final bill and donate the excess to your Children's Miracle Network Hospital. It’s an ideal fundraising program for walk-in and online retailers, restaurants, commercial service providers or home service providers. Donations are sent directly to your local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital without incurring any administrative costs, making for a highly visible yet inexpensive community relations campaign that strengthens a corporation’s image, builds community and helps kids receive life-saving care.
