workplace giving, payroll deduction & the combined federal campaign
Workplace giving programs are one of the ways individuals can support the Guide Dog Foundation and America's VetDogs. Payroll deduction is a convenient way to help us provide guide and service dogs free of charge to those we serve. You specify the amount you want to donate and your payroll department takes care of the rest. The money comes out of your paycheck before taxes, so you still receive the tax benefits of charitable giving (your payroll department will give you a tax receipt for your records).
Many firms also offer matching gifts or other workplace giving programs. If your employer provides matching funds, we receive an added donation thanks to your participation. Depending on your company, you may also have the chance to influence how your company accomplishes its philanthropic efforts.
You can search the "Double the Donation" directory on our donation page here to see if your company will match your donation or contact your HR department to ask
COMBINED FEDERAL CAMPAIGN (CFC)
All civilian and military employees of the federal government can use the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) as a direct method of making financial contributions. The CFC is the federal government’s annual workplace charity campaign. It runs from September 1, 2023, to January 15, 2024. All federal civilian, postal, and military employees can use the CFC to make direct contributions to the Guide Dog Foundation or America's VetDogs
When you sign up for the CFC, your donation is automatically deducted from your paycheck via payroll deductions. Your contributions are tax deductible and tracked during the year, so you will have accurate records at tax time. If you are a federal employee retiree, you can still donate to us through the CFC.
