Ways to Give: Workplace Giving


Here at AIM at Melanoma, we are fortunate to be frequently asked an important question: What are the different ways we can give? Generally, people want to know if there are impactful ways to give in addition to writing a check. The answer is YES! This article is the second in a series in which we will share ways to give that might be a good fit for your circumstances and that can increase your impact on our mission.

This month, we’re focusing on a powerful way to make a positive impact: Workplace Giving. If you’re looking for ways to contribute to meaningful causes through your place of work, this post is for you.

What is Workplace Giving?

Workplace Giving is a simple and effective way for employees to donate to charitable organizations directly from their payroll. Employers facilitate this program, which allows employees to make pre-tax contributions to various non-profits, streamlining the process of giving back.

Amplify Your Impact with Employer Matching Gift Programs
Did you know that many companies offer matching gift programs that can double or even triple your donation to AIM at Melanoma? By teaming up with your employer, you can significantly increase the impact of your contribution, helping us fund vital research and provide support for those affected by melanoma.

Here’s what to do:

Step 1: Does Your Employer Match?

Our website offers a handy tool that lets you know if your company offers a matching program; just type in the name of your company to find out. If you have a spouse, type in the name of his/her company, too.

Step 2: Review Matching Gift Instructions
If your company matches, you’ll see their guidelines and a link to more information or the matching gift form.

Step 3: Make a Donation and Submit Your Match Request
To double or even triple your donation to AIM at Melanoma, follow your company’s matching gift instructions and submit your match request. Note: Your employer might match past gifts, especially those made in the current calendar year.

Donate today! Every contribution counts, and with the added power of employer matching, your support can go even further.

Take a moment to check whether your employer offers a matching gift program. It’s a simple step that can make a huge difference in the fight against melanoma.

Workplace giving is a powerful tool that helps us with our mission of #endingmelanoma.
