NAMI Massachusetts is a member charity of Community Health Charities of New England (CHC of New England). CHC of New England continues to grow in designations, visibility and credibility, as they educate employers and employees about the opportunity to support local health charities through workplace giving. Health is an issue that touches us all, and it’s likely that every employee – or someone they know or love – is personally affected by a chronic illness or disease, such as mental illness.
Many Americans choose to give through workplace giving programs by directing a portion of their paycheck to the charities of their choice. Giving at work has great advantages both for employees that participate, and the corporations that conduct a workplace campaign.
Increased morale. Providing choices enhances employee morale, commitment and retention.
Satisfaction. Allowing employees to choose increases their satisfaction and participation in company giving.
Involvement. Including employees is a powerful way to link their own and your company’s interests.
Ease. Making payroll deductions to support charities that employees care about is simple.
Demonstrated commitment. Company-branded campaigns demonstrate to employees and customers that community leadership is a company priority.
Increased giving. Cases show that when employees are given options, participation rates increase.
Improved morale. When donors can make a difference to a cause they care about, everyone wins.
Education. Participating nonprofits can deliver workplace education and assistance to your employees.
Lowers fundraising cost. Employer campaigns let more money go to the organizations and less to administer the campaign.
