Help Animals Through Employee Workplace Giving

Donate to The HSUS right through your paycheck

Workplace giving programs allow employees to make regular donations to eligible charities through their companies’ payroll system. Employees may contribute a set amount per paycheck, or make a one-time gift.

How does workplace giving work?

You determine the charities you choose to support and pledge a tax-deductible donation amount. Your pledged donation amount is automatically deducted from payroll, offering a convenient means of giving—and the potential to make an even greater impact by year-round sustained giving, without losing the tax benefits of charitable giving.

Many workplaces, from private companies, military organizations, and federal, state and city governments coordinate charitable giving during a specified open enrollment period.

Why give to The Humane Society of the United States? 

Whether you choose to donate $2, $5, $10 or more per paycheck, or make a one-time contribution, your donations help us seek a humane and sustainable world for all animals—a world that will also benefit people.

The HSUS is the nation’s largest animal protection organization, rated most effective by our peers. For 60 years, we have celebrated the protection of all animals and confronted all forms of cruelty. We are the nation’s largest provider of hands-on services for animals, caring for more than 100,000 animals each year, and we prevent cruelty to millions more through our advocacy campaigns.

The HSUS is approved by the Better Business Bureau’s Wise Giving Alliance for all 20 standards for charity accountability, and was named by Worth Magazine as one of the 10 most fiscally responsible charities. Read more about our 60 years of transformational change for animals.

How to sign up for workplace giving

Ask your employer to feature The HSUS during the Workplace Giving Campaign

Ask your employer to feature The HSUS as a charity choice during the annual employee charitable giving campaign season. Companies want to empower employees by offering them a choice in the nonprofits they can support—causes their employees are passionate about.
