Starting a Campaign
Starting a Campaign is simple and free to your company.
What’s Required of Employers:
- Assign a campaign coordinator to oversee the campaign, distribute material, collect pledge forms, complete a campaign report, and forward pledge form copies to CS and your payroll department.
- Establish a timeline. Most campaigns take place in Fall. Pledges are deducted from paychecks during the next calendar year.
- Promote the campaign. Our staff will work with you to develop ideas, arrange for participating non-profits to speak at kick-offs or other events, and answer questions at the workplace.
- Set up an automatic deduction.
- Send campaign check and donor data to CS on the agreed schedule.
Community Shares will:
- help launch your campaign
- assist in developing a timeline
- give you the tools to implement payroll contributions
- provide campaign materials
- assist you throughout the process
- educate you on best-practices
- advise you about online giving options to minimize campaign paperwork
