Giving at Work
How you and your company can support the BC SPCA together!
There are several ways you can support the BC SPCA at your place of work to help even more animals in need in B.C. The following ideas may inspire you to get your company involved, too!
Matching Gift Programs
Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match charitable contributions made by their employees. Find out if your employer will match your gift by visiting the Matching Gifts page.
Your own independent fundraising initiatives at work
By starting your own fundraising initiative at your work you will engage your colleagues, support the animals and have fun in the process! For more information, email us.
Here are some great examples of ways you can fundraise at work!
Many companies offer a payroll deduction service for charitable foundations set up by the employer. A deduction of only $5 from each pay cheque means your annual donation could be as much as $130 a year! The total amount of your annual donation is included in your T4. Payroll deductions are also available through United Way corporate campaigns. Ask your employer or HR department today if this option is available to you.
Employee charitable trusts and foundations
Does your company have an employee charitable trust or foundation in which the employees have a say where the funds are donated? If so, get involved! The BMO Employee Charitable Foundation is one example where employees are actively engaged in all aspects of the foundation's giving. Thank you BMO employees.
