Many companies offer Corporate Giving Programs designed around their employees’ giving.  When an employee donates to their favorite charity, the company will donate too.  Local corporations that have offered this program have included Global Atlantic, First Financial Bank, Discover Financial Services, US Bank, and General Electric Foundation.  Ask your employer if they have a Corporate Giving Program.

However, there are also ways for you to support your favorite charitable organization at no cost to you.  Thanks to Corporate Giving, companies such as Amazon and Kroger, allow you to select a nonprofit organization, such as the Ripley County Community Foundation, to receive a contribution from your purchases.  It’s just two easy ways to give back effortlessly.
