America’s Charities inspires employees and organizations to support causes they care about. We do this to bring more resources to the nonprofits that are changing our world.
We are a 501(c)(3) membership-based nonprofit. We work at the nexus of employers, charities, and employee donors.
In our nearly 40 years as a leader in employee giving, America's Charities has raised more than $700 million for more than 20,000 nonprofits addressing causes including education, human rights, hunger, poverty, research, animal welfare, veteran assistance, disaster relief, and health services.
Founded on the principle that charitable choice—the idea that employers and employees should be able to support the causes they choose, rather than feel coerced to support specific institutions—is imperative to social impact, America's Charities has never wavered from its original purpose.
Since 1980, we have been at the forefront of workplace giving's transformation – from paper pledges to digital platforms, from giving to engagement, from traditional fall campaigns to year-round opportunities inside and outside the walls of the workplace.
America’s Charities helps the nation’s most trusted charities thrive by generating sustainable income through workplace giving and additional paths. We inspire employers and individuals to reach their philanthropic goals and support the charities of their choice.
America’s Charities is a major force in transforming and growing philanthropy.
If we succeed in our mission, we will raise $1 billion for worthy causes by 2026.
