America's Charities

Every year, millions of people across America are invited to participate in an activity that has become a Fall tradition for generations of employees working at many of the nation's largest employers: the Employee Charitable Giving Campaign. The impact of employee giving campaigns on charitable organizations and the people and communities they serve is immense. These campaigns funnel $3 billion annually much of which is unrestricted, sustainable funds that enable nonprofit groups to deliver vital services throughout the nation.
