An easy way to double your contribution to WTTW is through employee giving programs. Many corporations match employee donations (or the tax deductible component of your membership).
If you volunteer with us, your employer may also provide us with a grant as a way to recognize your ongoing support.
Thank you for checking to see if your company offers these programs. We hope you will take a minute to see if your company offers an employee matching gift program – grants that could equal hundreds, or even thousands, of dollars for WTTW.
