Did you know there is an easy way to double the impact of your contribution to local Scouting programs? It’s called an employee giving program!
Scouting counts on the generosity of donors like you to keep our program accessible to all families, and to ensure we provide top-notch services, facilities, and programs for young people and volunteer leaders.
Employee giving programs enhance the impact of your donations. These typically take two forms: matching gifts and matching hours.
Matching gifts are donations a company makes to match its employees’ charitable contributions. These are typically dollar-for-dollar matches but some companies go even further by tripling or quadrupling their employees’ donations.
Some companies even offer matching hours and will pay NCAC for hours you volunteer! To recognize your ongoing support of Scouting, your employer may provide a grant to our Council. These grants can be anywhere from $25 to $5,000!
Is your company a matching gift or matching hours company? Please take a minute to find out. Visit www.doublethedonation.org/ncacbsa and see if your employer is listed.
Statistics show that only 9% of employees take advantage of their employers matching gifts opportunity. Let us help you become one of those 9%! Contact Tiffany Tomeo at Tiffany.Tomeo@Scouting.org if you need assistance, and please help us spread the word by sending this link to others in your company so they can join you in taking advantage of this opportunity to help young people in our communities.
