GuideStar, Your Employer, and You!

Does your employer participate in charitable giving or donation matching? Austin Allies is proud to announce our partnership with GuideStar, a service that many employers use to manage charitable donations. 

As a 501c3 organization, Austin Allies can be added to many employers charitable giving campaigns. Through your employer, you can set up a one-time payment or a regular payroll deduction, streamlining the giving process and giving donations directly to Austin Allies! You may even find that your employer offers donation matching through Guidestar, thus doubling your contribution! 

For example, my employer provides an easy website to designate specific 501c3 organizations to receive my donations through small recurring payroll deductions each pay period which is managed by GuideStar. Quarterly, GuideStar sends the accumulated monies directly to those charitable organizations. Iā€™m thrilled to have such an easy way to support Austin Allies in their drive to provide wonderful volunteer opportunities that my family loves to participate in. 

Please, consider joining me and updating your giving through your employer today!
