Many companies want to support their communities as well as the causes that are important to their employees. To do so, they make it easy for employees to donate to their favourite charity by offering workplace giving programs. Through these programs, donations to the charity of your choice get deducted directly from your paycheque.
To see if your organization supports this type of giving, simply ask your Human Resources (HR) department. If it does, request a paycheque deduction contribution to MedicAlert Foundation Canada so that you can help us offer everything from financial assistance to Canadians who cannot afford the security of MedicAlert protection, to training for healthcare professionals on how best to use our exclusive 24/7 Emergency Hotline.
Some companies also offer matching donation programs and will match any financial gift made by its employees 1:1 or even 2:1. A matching gift helps us grow our charitable programs even faster, meaning we can help more children, more adults and more seniors get the security of MedicAlert protection. Again, all you have to do is ask your HR department.
