Money contributions to a Puggle rescue are always a great way to help volunteers with expenses and make a difference in a Puggle’s world. So many rescued dogs are in need of Vet care, and all require the basic necessities of life – food, water and shelter – all of which costs money.
Although you may wish you could do more for a rescue aside from donating money, understand that providing such funds are greatly appreciated by the rescue. Every donation made to a good animal rescue goes toward caring for the dogs, and helping them find new loving homes.
However, did you know that you might be able to double the funds you donate to the Puggle rescue? Many employers will actually match charitable donations made by their employees. This doesn’t only mean matching money you may have donated, but also if you sponsor or adopt a dog.
This particular type of unique charitable donation matching is known as a Corporate Matching Gift program. Most companies who participate in this program will match dollar for dollar when it comes to the charitable contribution made by their employee.
Of course, not every company will offer the corporate matching gift program, so you will need to find out if your’s does. To learn if the business you work for is involved in the program, contact your employer’s Personal Department or Human Resources to find out more. If you discover that the company you work for does offer this charity program, simply ask for the proper form so you can fill it out and have you donation matched. If they don’t offer the program, there’s no harm in asking them if they would be interested in doing so.
Aside from corporate matching gifts (or if the business you work for doesn’t provide this option), there is nothing wrong with asking your fellow co-workers if they would be interested in making a small donation to the Puggle Rescue with you. Remember, every little bit helps, and there is no harm in asking. Just make sure you don’t hassle those who aren’t interested. A donation is a gift from the heart, it shouldn’t be forced.
