Employee Giving Campaigns
Many of the larger companies have give-at-work programs to encourage charitable giving – the most popular are United Way or Community Health Charities. However, your company also may have another program they have established. In any case, you should be able to give your gifts or pledge your donations to Wishes & More® through ANY of these campaigns by writing us in. For example, we are not a United Way agency and do not receive funds unless a donor has specified that they want their donations to be directed to us. In that case, United Way takes an administration fee and forwards your donation on to us even though we are not on their pre-named list of charities. If you experience any trouble with designating Wishes & More, please contact us and we will work to find a solution. We are always happy to help in any way that we are able! Additionally, some companies have Matching Programs – see below for more info on increasing your donation through this great option!

- $5 / pay period, or a $100 one-time donation, underwrites a customized wish enhancement gift, event or activity!
- $10 / pay period, or a $250 one-time donation, provides a portion of the spending money that we provide to ensure that the family does not need to use any personal funds!
- $20 / pay period, or a $500 one-time donation, allows us to buy a plane ticket for a wish child to go on their travel or adventure wish!
- $40 / pay period, or a $1,000 one-time donation, allows us to provide a Memorial Grant for a family who’s child didn’t survive to experience a wish.
- $80 / pay period, or a $2,000 one-time donation, allows us to provide a Scholarship of Hope® Grant for a wish recipient as they go on to fulfill their dreams of higher education!

Employee Matching Programs
Many companies will give a full or partial match donation when you make a gift to Wishes & More. Please increase your gift by checking into this opportunity at your place of work. Contact us with questions, forms or more information.
Sometimes called “Dollars For Doers,” this is when a company will donate a certain dollar amount to Wishes & More dependent on a number of hours you volunteer for us. Other workplaces will give opportunities for employees to have a paid volunteer day for an organization of their choice. If you or your colleagues are interested in volunteering with us, please contact us to set up fun individual or group volunteer day!
Your company may have a foundation that gives donations or distributes grants to non-profits fitting a certain criteria. If your company has a foundation, please contact Wishes & More®.
