Employee Contribution Fund
What it is:
How it works/Example:
In an employee contribution fund, a company sets up a program where employees can make donations (usually deducted directly from their paychecks) to a charity that the company supports.
Why it matters:
Employee contribution funds can raise a significant amount of money for a charity because of the company match that is frequently part of the program. They also send the message that the company is socially responsible and is behind a cause at a grassroots level.
