Workplace Giving

Partnering with Oregon Food Bank will help your employees contribute to a cause they value and improve employee engagement and retention. We encourage companies and employees to share in giving back at their workplace — whether through an employee giving campaign or internal event, matching donations or payroll deductions. An Oregon Food Bank representative is happy to speak at your company and attend a workplace giving fair.

We know that businesses care about their employees and that employees care about giving back to the community. Workplace giving encourages a company and its staff to join together to invest in our shared community.

Payroll Deduction

We appreciate payroll deductions.* Small contributions quickly add up to provide essential food and assistance in our community. It is an easy way to make charitable donations directly and automatically from your paycheck. When you make this type of gift to Oregon Food Bank, you are minimizing our administrative costs and putting more of your donation to work fighting hunger and its root causes.

Please use your company’s payroll deduction form or contact our representative listed below for a sample form. If we have a list of employees who donate, we are happy to send thank you letters acknowledging their generosity.

*Per the IRS, payroll deduction donations are receipted by the employer, using a paystub, W-2 or other document provided by the employer that indicates the amount withheld and paid to Oregon Food Bank, or the pledge card provided at the workplace. Oregon Food Bank does not provide tax receipts to donors making payroll deduction donations.

Matching Gifts

Matching gift programs allow you to multiply the impact of a contribution. When you donate, your employer will follow up with a donation as well.

Ask your company’s HR or community relations staff if the company has a matching gift program. Please get a form and follow the donation instructions — this little additional time commitment doubles the amount and impact of your gift!

As a company, providing a matching gift shows your employees that you are committed to their values and our community!
