Workplace Giving

Matching Gifts

Many workplaces match their employees’ charitable gifts, meaning EFF will receive anywhere from 50% to 200% in additional contributions, as long as you report the donation to your employer. There are usually three steps to the process:

  1. Make your donation to EFF
  2. Obtain and fill out a matching gifts form
  3. Submit the form to the human resources or philanthropy department

EFF will take it from there. If you want to help your colleagues, please add a description of the matching gifts procedure at your company and links to any forms available online at matchingdonors.eff.org.

Each company has a slightly different matching gifts procedure, which we are trying to collect for the convenience of your colleagues at matchingdonors.eff.org.

Many non-profits offer a short list of companies with matching gifts programs, but require donors to search out and find the necessary forms on their own. EFF and Creative Commons aim to offer contact information, instructions, and relevant links, so that only one employee has to do legwork that will encourage an entire office to match each gift.

If you would like to contribute, please email Nicole Puller, EFF’s Development Associate, at nicole@eff.org (so we can thank you!).

Combined Federal Campaign

EFF is one of several, carefully selected Human and Civil Rights Organizations across the country that federal, some state and local employees can donate through payroll deductions. We are proud that so many government employees decide to support digital civil liberties as part of the annual Combined Federal Campaign, and would be happy to provide you with more information about how you can contribute, or visit their site at http://www.hcr.org/our-members.html.

EFF’s CFC Code is 10437.

Volunteer: Promote EFF at Local CFC Fairs

Even if you’re not a government employee, you can participate by representing EFF at local campaign events and fairs. Please contact Nicole Puller, EFF’s Development Associate, at nicole@eff.org for training and informational materials to distribute at an event near your hometown.

A list of CFC events in your area can be found at wg-alliance.org/cfcevents.
