Connecting needs, resources, volunteers, and opportunities is all in a day’s work for our League. Many people have heard of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programs, but matching gifts and payroll deductions are less known opportunities.
An easy way to double your volunteer efforts and contributions! Over 1,000 corporations will match employee, spouse, or retiree donations (or the tax deductible component of your annual membership) to our organization. If you volunteer with us, your employer may also provide us with a grant to recognize your ongoing support, which is measured through your tracked volunteer hours. Please contact us at email@example.com to see if you or your spouse works at a company with Matching Gift opportunities, or if your former employer offers a Matching Gift program for retirees.
Did you know that the JLB can be listed as a recipient of United Way donations made through payroll deductions? Contributions that you or your employer already makes to a United Way campaign (e.g. $2.00 per pay period) can be earmarked for our League. To designate JLB as the recipient, you must provide your company with the following information:
United Way of Central Maryland
Agency Name: Junior League of Baltimore
Agency Address: 5902 York Road, Baltimore, MD 21212
Designations are sent in addition to any existing program funding provided by United Way, so this will not affect the League with respect to potential grants and other support. Pledges made through payroll deduction are sent quarterly beginning in March. Gifts paid by cash, check, credit card, or stock are distributed to designated agencies in the next scheduled payout. Names and gift details are provided unless the donor chooses to remain anonymous, or if an employer does not provide United Way with detailed donor gift information. If you have any questions or issues with the donations forms, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or the UWCM office directly at (800) 685-2159.
Your commitment and generosity are very much appreciated. Because of supporters like you, the Junior League will remain a powerful resource for the Baltimore community for generations to come. Together we are indeed “Building a Better Community.”
