United Way Giving and Matching Gifts

 

How can I donate through my company's United Way Giving Campaign?

If you are an employee of a company that conducts its own employee workplace-giving fund drive, you may be able to double or even triple the impact of your gift. In order to encourage charitable giving, the companies will often "match" your gift-thereby doubling your gift to Sanitation for All (IHSAN). Some will even "double-match" your donations to triple the impact of your original donation. Many employers sponsor corporate matching gift programs and will match any charitable contributions that their employees make. Some companies also match gifts made by retirees and/or spouses.

 

United Way Donor Designation

If you participate in a United Way giving campaign that allows donor designations, you may be able to select SFA (IHSAN) as the beneficiary of your United Way gifts. If SFA (IHSAN) is not listed as a member agency, please contact the campaign coordinator to see if you can write it in to be considered for your gift. If you are able to write SFA (IHSAN) in as your choice, please use our complete, spelled-out name (Industry’s Humanitarian Support Alliance NGO) and provide the following information: Address (3901 Cathedral Ave. NW, Unit 418, Washington, DC 20016-5215) and federal tax-identification EIN number (26-0689702). As procedures do vary with each local or regional campaign, please verify that you have completed your designation correctly.

 

How can I give a matching gift?

Obtain a matching gift form and program guidelines from your Human Resources Office. Many campaigns are entirely online and can be auto-drafted from your paycheck. Your donations and the company match will be forwarded to SFA (IHSAN) directly. 

If the process is paper-based and requires a check be sent directly, please fill in the Employee Section of the form, sign it, and send it to SFA (IHSAN) along with your donation to: 


Industry’s Humanitarian Support Alliance NGO

3901 Cathedral Ave. NW, Unit 418

Washington, DC 20016-5215

 

We will complete the form and forward it to your employer's matching gifts office for processing. The company will send its matching donation directly to SFA.

 

If you ever have a question about your company's matching donation, contact your Human Resources Department or feel free to contact us.
