Workplace Giving

One of the easiest, most effective ways you can support Good Shepherd Housing and Family Services is through workplace giving, an employer–‐sponsored program that empowers you to support your favorite charities through tax–‐deductible donations deducted directly from your paycheck. Through our membership with America’s Charities, employees at hundreds of public and private organizations can donate to Good Shepherd Housing and Family Services through payroll contributions. If your company does not have a workplace giving program, please ask your HR/Employee Benefits Director to contact Candice Bennett, Director of Development at (703) 768-9404, x113. Additionally, you can find more information about joining or starting a workplace giving program by visiting America’s Charities’ website at www.charities.org. America’s Charities facilitates our participation in public and private sector workplace giving programs, and can help your employer start a program so you can support Good Shepherd Housing and Family Services through workplace giving.

Maximize Your Impact with Matching Gifts

Each year, $10 billion is left unclaimed in matching gifts.

That’s free money that you could help us get! Matching gift programs are charitable giving programs set up by corporations in which the company matches donations made by employees to eligible nonprofit organizations.
