Be a Charity Champion: Start a Workplace Giving Program

You can create and promote an annual giving campaign in your workplace. We'll help you to be successful.

Here's what we can help you with:

  • Determine co-workers' charitable interests
  • Provide AKF speakers and kidney health materials
  • Plan a campaign Kick-Off Event - employees will be able to learn more about AKF's programs and services

Employees: As your organization's Charity Champion, you:

  • Initiate - talk to your human resources department about the advantages of starting a giving campaign
  • Set campaign goals - entice others to contribute by setting a fundraising goal
  • Spread the word - share the benefits of your company's new workplace giving options with others
  • Promote - invite your fellow co-workers to attend an annual Kick-Off Event


  • Support - have company leaders visibly support and endorse your workplace giving program
  • Designate a Charity Champion - this charity advocate is an enthusiastic employee who will be the driving force and primary contact for the giving campaign
  • Communicate - use newsletters, emails and staff meetings to clearly explain the purpose and goals of your giving campaign
  • Stimulate Participation & Growth - encourage your employees to contribute by matching their workplace giving contribution

Do it!

  • Set program guidelines
  • Create a pledge form
  • Create a new deduction slot in your payroll system for charity giving
  • Forward contributions to AKF quarterly or annually

Talk to us about starting your campaign! Please email Leslie Pouchet or call 800-638-8299 ext. 6635.
