Together, building a sustainable Milwaukee
Community Shares of Greater Milwaukee
Workplace giving campaigns allow employees to make regular donations to nonprofits through payroll deduction. These campaigns help people act on their good intentions. In fact, individuals give an average of five times more through workplace giving than they do when they write a check directly to an organization.
Workplace giving campaigns are the simplest, most efficient and effective way to raise money. Everyone benefits – businesses, donors, member charities – and ultimately, the whole Greater Milwaukee community.
