Employee Gift Matching

Does your employer match donations?

Ask if your company offers a gift matching program and if so, what the company’s guidelines are. In some cases, the value of an employee’s donation may be doubled or tripled. Many companies match gifts given by employees and their spouses, as well as by retirees and board members. 

You can also contribute to your favorite nonprofit through automatic payroll deductions. Many companies offer this opportunity via an outside federation, such as United Way or America’s Charities. Federal, state and municipal employees can sign up through a philanthropy motivator like the Combined Federal Campaign. Simply select C.A.R.E.4Paws, Inc. on the designation form. If our nonprofit is not listed, opt to do a “direct designation,” which means you have to list C.A.R.E.4Paws, Inc. and our tax identification number, 27-0207473, on the form. 

Planned Giving

Your bequest can make a big impact 

By remembering C.A.R.E.4Paws in your estate plans, you help ensure that we can continue assisting thousands of animals and pet owners in need—for years to come. Not only can a bequest help change the future for our four-legged friends, but it gives you an opportunity to be permanently identified with an organization whose work you truly believe in.
