EMPLOYEE GIVING PROGRAM

Small Acts of Generosity sum to HUGE Change!

What is Employee Giving?

Employee Giving is a philanthropic strategy where staff may choose to
donate a small portion of their pay to a worthy cause. If desired, this
donation can be matched by the employer to supercharge the impact!

How can I start?

Many payroll programs allow for the activation of an Employee Giving
Program with just a few clicks. Some programs allow the employee to
select their preferred donation amount capped at a value chosen by the
employer. We at KIDTHINK would be happy to help you set-up your
employee giving program.

Why should I consider an Employee Giving
Program for my company?

Internally:
  • Implementing an Employee Giving Program, you communicate to your staff that your
    company’s culture is one of generosity.
  • Employee Giving Programs also aid with employee retention and recruiting.
  • Empowering and supercharging your staff’s philanthropic activities, you create a sense
    of community and belonging while showing your staff that you value their choice to
    give.
Exnternally:
  • Your customers will come to know that your corporation values your shared
    community.
  • KIDTHINK will recognize your company on social media and our website which,
    collectively, reach thousands of locals every month.

The Impact!

  •  If each employee contributed $20/year – about a coffee from Starbucks once a week – your impact would be incredible!
  • Even with as few as 5 employees, a $20/month Employee Giving Program would be able to provide 2 local low-income or multi-barriered families access to no-cost evidence-based mental health care.

How to get your staff engaged!

Make it clear the importance of cause.

1 in 5 children has a mental illness and only 20% of those affected seek and receive treatment. The average wait-time for care in Manitoba is over 6 months. Collectively, your company could ensure that countless children and families receive the care they need.

Incentives.

Holding a draw once a month for participating employees is a fun way to reward them for their generosity while also inspiring more to join in. We are happy to offer high-quality KIDTHINK merchandise such as Champion brand clothing as a prize!
N

Nominate a Giving Champion.

Talking with your staff, finding someone who is passionate for the cause, and nominating them to lead the charge is a wonderful strategy for getting an Employee Giving Program off the ground.
D

Do the Do, and lead by example.

Your staff are likely to be motivated if they see the company executives step up first.
S

Start a friendly competition.

Competition breeds excellence. If your company is one of franchises or branches, competing with each other to find out which team can create the most change is a great way to get employees excited about giving!
