Workplace fundraising is a positive, rewarding and fun way to motivate and further engage employees in your organization. Studies have shown that one of the factors contributing to engagement in the workplace is pride about the company’s support for the community. Through workplace fundraising such as enrolling in an employee giving campaign, taking advantage of corporate matching gifts program, or planning a fundraising event, your employees will help Make-A-Wish Foundation of New Jersey further our mission and will provide your employees with an enriching experience.

If your company’s employee giving program only includes the United Way, look for the Make-A-Wish Foundation of New Jersey in the listing of charities. If we are not represented, look for a “donor option” line on your giving campaign form and write in “Make-A-Wish Foundation of New Jersey.” Most local United Way programs allow donors to specify a charity other than one from their list of participants. Your local United Way will then forward your gift directly to the Foundation.
Look for the Make-A-Wish Foundation under the America’s Charities – Children’s 1st listing on your giving campaign form. America’s Charities is the Make-A-Wish Foundation’s partner in the workplace, with inclusion in hundreds of state and local government, public sector, and corporate employee campaigns. You can designate the Make-A-Wish Foundation as the beneficiary of your payroll deductions or choose to make a one-time gift.
