Community leadership takes many forms. The National Capital Area Council Boy Scouts of America is fortunate to have so many hardworking volunteers committed to Scouting programs in our area. We appreciate all the ways that the work of our volunteers contributes to Scouting’s mission, and that’s why we want you to know about an easy, powerful way you can support us while doing what you’re already doing. That way is workplace giving.
If you have given a donation to NCAC this year, don’t be afraid to ask your employer if they offer a matching gifts program. Often times, companies offer matching gifts to incentivize employees to participate in meaningful causes that benefit their communities, such as Scouting. For you, that means a possible avenue to doubling your donation for an organization that you’re already invested in. Some companies will even match the time you give with a financial contribution. That is, for each hour you volunteer, your employer may donate money to the Scouts. Because workplace giving is one of the easiest, most cost-effective ways to support NCAC’s mission, it enables us to maximize the impact your donation makes–no matter what form it takes.
If you are unsure if your company offers a matching gifts program, please go to https://doublethedonation.com/ncacbsa and enter your company’s name to see if they participate. Every donation matters, and by taking a moment to check if your company participates in workplace giving, you could double the impact of what you’re already doing. And that’s working smarter.
Thank you for all that you do for Scouting. For more information on this and other ways to give, please visit: https://www.ncacbsa.org/support-scouting/
