How to Help
Work Place Giving
Helping Stray Dogs and Cats through your workplace giving program can often provide added benefits and advantages – at no additional cost to you!
More and more companies are now conducting employee workplace-giving programs. In order to encourage charitable giving, the companies will often “match” your gift-thereby doubling your donation for our animals. Some will even “double-match” your donations to triple the impact of your original donation.
Before donating, please check with your Human Resources department or Office Manager to see if your company has a Matching Gift Program. Then be sure to follow your company’s guidelines when making a donation to increase your impact to Bobbi and the Strays.
If your employer requires an application to be completed by us, or other documentation, please just contact us. We would love to be included in any of your company’s charitable campaigns.
Combined Federal Campaign
Federal employees can participate in the annual Combined Federal Campaign (CFC), which runs from September 1 through December 15.
You can easily locate Bobbi and the Strays section in your CFC materials.
Many states now conduct their own annual government employee campaigns. Check to see if Bobbi and the Strays is included in those charities from which to select.
Many companies hold United Way fund-drives. Through the United Way’s “Donor Option” program, you can now select Bobbi and the Strays as the beneficiary of your United Way gifts. Please remember to write “Bobbi and the Strays” in as your choice.
Usually, when donations are taken from your pay, taxes are not withheld from it. AND sometimes companies will even match your United Way contribution!
Since procedures vary with each local or regional campaign, please check with your workplace coordinator to make sure that you write your choice in correctly.
Speak to your employer about United Way or Bobbi and the Strays to see if a fund-drive can be held at your office.
