WORKPLACE GIVING

 

Does your company participate in Workplace Giving or the United Way or Combined Federal Workplace Giving campaign?  This upcoming year Outdoors for All will need the help of more than 700 volunteers for our programs and over $60,000 in financial aid in order to meet the growing needs and demands of individuals with disabilities. More than 60% of those resources are needed by early December to enable all of our winter participants who have the desire and motivation—but not the resources—to be active in the outdoors.

Outdoors for All has a successful and easy-to-use workplace giving model—the details of which are outlined below. If your company is looking for an organization to donate to through workplace giving this year, we are happy to visit your location for an informational session. Below are four simple ways you can help enrich the lives of children and adults with disabilities:

DESIGNATING YOUR GIFT

Please consider encouraging others to join you in directing their work place giving dollars, either all or a portion, to Outdoors for All. You do not need to live in Washington to designate Outdoors for All for your work place giving or matching dollars. In fact, people nationwide support our mission because they have a connection to Outdoors for All through a friend or family member and they feel confident that their dollars are making a direct impact on someone or something they care about. In order to designate your gift:

  • Request a designation form and write “Outdoors for All, Seattle WA” in the appropriate space. Your local representative can tell you specifically how to make this designation (each local United Way differs). TAX ID: 91-1085999
  • For those participating in the Combined Federal Campaign you’ll need to indicate code #92123
  • For those participating in the Combined Fund Drive, our code is # 0320849
  • For those who want to process a Corporate Matching Gift through LICA (Local Independent Charities of America), click here.

Together, we will share highlights of Outdoors for All programs and activities and how we are making a difference in lives of individuals with disability, their families, volunteers and the community. Contact us to schedule a speaker from our organization.
