Workplace Giving Campaigns
United Way Campaign
The United Way Worldwide is a nonprofit organization that works with more than 1,200 local United Way offices throughout the country in a coalition of charitable organizations to pool efforts in fundraising and support. The issues the United Way offices focus on are determined locally because communities differ, but the main areas include education, income, and health.
Non-federal employees whose employers partner with a local United Way agency.
Pledge a gift that is automatically deducted from each paycheck.
The United Way campaign seasons vary per local office, but generally run from mid-August to mid-February. Find your local campaign office here: http://apps.unitedway.org/myuw/.
Participating in the United Way is a simple and convenient “set it and forget it” way to support vital programs and research that the Histiocytosis Association provides.
While the Histiocytosis Association is not a United Way member agency, we can receive donations through the Donor Choice Program. This program allows employees to direct all or part of their donation to a specific non-member agency. Non-member agencies are not monitored by the United Way, but their tax exempt status is verified. Follow these steps to support the Association through the Donor Choice Program:
- Obtain a Donor Choice or Donor Option Form from your employer.
- Specify that your United Way gift should be directed to:
332 North Broadway
Pitman, New Jersey 08071
- Indicate on your Donor Choice/Option Form that you would like the Histiocytosis Association to acknowledge your gift.
- If requested, provide the Association’s Federal Tax ID# 22-2827069.
- Return your Donor Choice/Option Form and company pledge cards as instructed by your employer.
Please note that some United Way branches do not participate in the Donor Option Program. If this is the case in your area, please contact the Histiocytosis Association, as we may be able to find a solution.
