Employee Giving Programs

There are two ways to donate to The Black Star Project through your workplace. Workplace giving programs allow your contributions to be deducted directly from your paycheck and with matching gifts programs, companies match donations you make to charitable organizations.

Workplace Giving

Fight for the youth and communities by designating The Black Star Project in your workplace giving, combined federal campaign (CFC code 17693) or state employee charitable campaign (Illinois SECA code 950-0055).

Many companies encourage their employees to make charitable contributions by offering workplace giving programs, through which your contributions are deducted directly from your paycheck. Ask your human resource department whether your company offers this giving opportunity.
