Many companies choose to make philanthropy a part of their corporate culture by making it easy for their employees to support charities such as Girl Scouts.
How Can You Help?
Workplace and United Way Campaigns
Annual employee charitable campaigns make it easy for employees to make regular donations through payroll deductions. Many employee gifts are matched by their employers. Read more about matching gifts.
Some companies who partner with Girl Scouts on workplace campaigns are:
• Agilent Technologies
• Ball Aerospace
• BBVA Compass
• DaVita, Inc.
• Noble Energy
• Wells Fargo
• Woodford Manufacturing
Girl Scouts of Colorado is eligible to receive funds via multiple government giving campaigns.
• Combined Federal Campaign (CFC #32336)
• Colorado Combined Campaign (CCC #4034)
• Denver Employees Combined Campaign (DECC #4033)
If your company does not already have a giving campaign and would like more information contact Carol Griffin at firstname.lastname@example.org or 303.607.4879.
Many companies encourage (or even require) employees to volunteer in their communities. Some companies even match their employees’ volunteer hours with a cash donation.
Did you know that in the Denver area alone there are more than 1500 girls who would like to be Girl Scouts, but there aren’t enough adult volunteers to be leaders? Learn more about volunteer opportunities with Girl Scouts of Colorado.
