Workplace giving campaigns are a great way to give to the Organization for Autism Research.  OAR participates in many workplace giving campaigns including Combined Federal Campaign, State Campaigns, United Way, and campaigns in the private sector. Each campaign is typically an employer-sponsored event that allows the employee to make a commitment via payroll deduction.

 

The Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) is the annual charitable campaign for federal employees and military personnel. OAR is listed in the CFC as: Autism Intervention and Treatment Research — Organization for Autism Research (#10551)

As a CFC-approved Charity, OAR has met all 10 accountability standards imposed by the campaign. Giving through the CFC is easy — you can give a little each pay period! Having your gift deducted a little at a time not only allows you to give more, it also allows us to receive support throughout the year.

 

State Campaigns – Most levels of government have campaigns comparable to the CFC at the corresponding levels for their employees. OAR is a registered, eligible charity in:

California, Connecticut, Florida, Illinois, Massachusetts, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Utah, Virginia, Washington, and Wisconsin.

Other states have varying eligibility requirements. If you would like to contribute in a state not listed above, check with the campaign coordinator to see if you have a “Donor Choice” option.

 

United Way is a series of hundreds of locally managed campaigns that collect donations from employees in participating, private sector companies. Some are more inclusive than others, but almost all have a “Donor Choice” option if you want to give to a specific charity like OAR and don’t see it listed. You may have to talk to the campaign coordinator to get the required forms and details, but you do have a right to exercise your choice.

 

Independent Campaigns – An increasing number of companies conduct their own workplace campaigns. This gives them greater flexibility in conducting the campaign and in targeting their charitable interests. If your company conducts its own campaign, it may not have a “Donor Choice” option. In that event, you will have to generate interest within the company to have OAR/autism research included as a designated beneficiary/interest area.

Matching gifts are a great way to increase the impact of your gift. Many companies match their employees’ donations to non-profit organizations like the Organization for Autism Research. Some companies will even double or triple your personal donation.

Matching your donation is easy to do. Use the search tool below or check with your company’s human resources department to see if they have a matching gift program. Most companies will provide you with a short form for you to fill out and send to us with your donation. We will do the rest.  It’s that easy!
