Free Webinar March 26: What Would Happen if There Was MORE Employee Giving?

Mar 5, 2019 11:45 AM ET

Thanks to legislation that created the New Jersey Employees Charitable Campaign (NJECC) in 1985, employees of state agencies, universities, county government, municipalities and school districts throughout New Jersey enjoy the benefit of giving to many of their favorite charities through an annual workplace giving campaign which features the convenience of payroll deduction. This drive supports the work of approved charitable agencies and organizations, with approximately 1,000 charities participating each year. These agencies fight disease, make life more meaningful for the young and elderly, assist the impoverished, and help people to become economically self-sufficient.

Marking its 34th year in 2018, the NJECC has raised nearly $50 million for charitable organizations – local, national, and international.

What would happen if there was MORE employee giving?

What would happen if more states, counties, and private sector companies offered workplace giving campaigns? What if more employees were offered the opportunity to donate through employee giving programs? 

Employee giving is a vital mechanism for social impact. If we are to meet the greatest demands before us such as climate change, obesity, homelessness, and myriad other issues, then it is imperative that employee giving programs continue to grow and produce even more resources for the nonprofits that our changing our world.
