Workplace Giving

How it Works

Including a MaineShare campaign at your workplace is easy. Here’s how it works.

Distribute MaineShare’s pledge form and brochure simultaneously with other appeals. Most employers run their campaign between Labor Day and Thanksgiving.

Gather interested employees for a 10-minute briefing from MaineShare. We will plan this at time convenient for you. This may be done jointly with other workplace charities. Though not required, a personal appeal gives employees a better understanding of their charitable options –- and a chance to ask questions.

At the close of your campaign period, please collect all completed pledge forms and return the white copies to us – along with your completed Campaign Report Form – and any cash donations.

Transmit payroll deduction contributions to MaineShare on a monthly, bi-monthly or quarterly basis—whatever works best for you. We track all designations and distribute funds to our member groups accordingly. That’s it! A MaineShare volunteer or staff person will be assigned to your workplace to ensure that you have the supplies and assistance you need.
