Workplace Giving

Workplace giving is one of the ways you can support the American Lung Association in California.  If either your company conducts a workplace giving program or operates a United Way giving campaign, you can support the American Lung Association through workplace giving.

Workplace giving serves as an important component to assist us in our mission to prevent lung disease and promote lung health.

United Way

If your employer allows you to donate to charity through a United Way giving program, there are multiple ways that you can designate the American Lung Association in California as the beneficiary of your gift. The American Lung Association in California may be listed as a member agency that you can select to receive your donation.  If not listed, please contact giving campaign organizers and ask if the American Lung Association in California can be written-in as a recipient.  If possible, please include our full organization name (American Lung Association in California), address (424 Pendleton Way, Oakland, CA, 94621), and federal tax-identification number (94-0362650). The forms vary by employer, so please review them carefully for all possible giving options. Upon completion, please verify with your coordinator if the proper steps have been taken in order for your gift to be received.

Matching Gift Program

If your employer manages a workplace-giving campaign, there is a possibility you can multiply the effect of your support to the American Lung Association in California. In order to encourage charitable giving, many companies will match employee donations. Through the program, employers will donate to the American Lung Association in California, ultimately increasing the reach of your gift. Employers match to varying degrees, but any multiple will help us improve the quality of life for Californians. Please check with the department responsible for the workplace giving program (typically Human Resources) and inform them of your donation and desire to have it matched. In addition, ensure that the American Lung Association in California is listed in your company's campaign. If it isn't, please inform us of the steps we need to take to become a listed organization.

From the Fight for Air Walks to Christmas Seals, all donations to the American Lung Association in California are potentially subject to the matching gift program. Review the guidelines with your employer and inform them of the donations you make throughout the season.

If you have any questions surrounding workplace giving, please contact Lorna Krkich Lorna.krkich@lung.org or at (916) 585-7672.

Thank you for your support.
