Jun. 19 /CSRwire/ - FALLS CHURCH, Virginia - Charities@Work and CreateHope, Inc. have formed a partnership to support and promote strong, effective and efficient workplace-giving campaigns. The full-service package provided through the partnership enables companies and employees to support the country's premier charitable organizations powered by the latest giving technology.
Created in response to recent trends in the workplace-giving field--including growing interest in expanding giving choices for donors and the need for transparency of contributions--the partnership provides an alternative to traditional workplace-giving programs.
"The traditional model [of workplace-giving campaigns] is no longer relevant to today's workforce and current technologies. Employees want greater choice in which charities they support," said Kal Stein, President and CEO of Earth Share. "The federations of Charities@Work offer a diverse range of the best-known and most trusted charities in America."
With financial accountability of donations under increased scrutiny due to recent alleged accounting scandals at several notable organizations, the partnership permits constant donor access to the status of contributions through CreateHope, Inc.'s GivingStation® software.
By working together and streamlining their offerings, Charities@Work and CreateHope are able to offer an affordable solution that benefits the employer, the donor and the charities.
"The marriage of technology with premier charities bridges the divide between two formerly separated elements of workplace-giving campaigns," stated Adam Goozh, President and CEO of CreateHope, Inc. "With Charities@Work, we are streamlining the administration of campaigns for companies and allowing charities to focus on their core competencies of improving lives through their programs and services."
The partnership between Charities@Work and CreateHope, Inc. was formed in April 2006 and the workplace-giving management solution is available to companies beginning this July.
Charities@Work is an alliance of four nonprofit federations that serves as the cooperative voice for premier international, national and local charities and provides critical assistance in the fields of health and human services, international relief and development, and environmental protection and conservation. Member federations include America's Charities, Community Health Charities, Earth Share and Global Impact and represent a combined 143 years of workplace-giving experience. Charities@Work gives employers an efficient way to enhance their workplace-giving campaign by responding to growing employee interest in a wider range of giving options.
