Ways to get your company to help out:
- Ask your company to make a corporate gift. Your company might even have a foundation that already donates to various charities.
- Many employers offer plans which allow you to double your personal contribution with a matching gift! Talk to your employer today to see if they offer these services, or encourage them to develop a Matching Gift program.
- Host an office donation drive whether it be items or money. Make it a fun event like Jeans Day Friday or have a fun picnic lunch!
- If your office participates in a payroll donation organization, such as United Way, you can designate your gift to go to University Settlement.
- Sponsor an event! University Settlement hosts several large events throughout the year including the Annual Taste of Slavic Village, the Annual Save our Babies Safe Sleep Event, and the Village Father-Daughter Dance. Events like these allow community members to network and have fun, while providing access to the resources available to them through U.S.
For more information about sponsoring an event or how to get businesses involved, please contact Kaitlin Armocida at firstname.lastname@example.org
We know that not everyone can provide a financial contribution to our organization, but there are many ways to help University Settlement serve the Broadway-Slavic Village community by volunteering time to one of our programs.
