Both employees and businesses can gain from a partnership with EarthShare.
- Efficiency: Most employees want to give but don't want to add the chore of mailing donations or dealing with paperwork. With payroll deduction, they can proudly say, "I gave at the office."
- Optimization: Employees will be happy to know their favorite organizations are spending more time on the ground, affecting change, and less time on fundraising. That's more time and money spent saving the Earth.
- Giving employees a voice: Adding workplace giving through EarthShare Oregon allows employees to feel understood and supported in their concerns for the environment. And when companies match employees' donations, it shows the employer supports the things that are important to its workers.
- Satisfaction: Employees who give to conservation efforts gain the personal satisfaction of making a difference. Workplace giving has been proven more effective at raising morale than bonuses.
- Ability to give more: Through payroll deduction, employees can happily give what seems like pennies on the dollar. A small amount from each paycheck is easier on the budget, and for most amounts to an overall larger donation.
- Community caring: By including EarthShare Oregon in your business’s workplace giving, you are making a huge positive impact on our member conservation groups. You're supporting their ability to preserve our natural environment and the health of the community.
- Corporate citizenship: You're telling everyone from your competitors to your customers that your organization cares about the environment and the quality of life of your employees and their children. And if you match your employees' gifts, your commitment is more noticeable.
- Excitement: Workplace giving campaigns help boost morale and camaraderie. Many companies make a celebration of it. Employee groups volunteer, put on small events, have friendly competitions between departments and enjoy giving together.
- Intrinsic rewards: Employers benefit from the intrinsic reward of knowing that they are helping the environment and the community in a meaningful way, giving something back.
- Added benefits: As a workplace partner of EarthShare Oregon, your staff can access helpful resources, like Green Team support and Brown Bag presentations. These tools keep your employees engaged and productive.
