America's Charities inspires employees and organizations to support each other and causes they care about. We help nonprofits fundraise unrestricted, sustainable dollars through the workplace, and we help employers achieve their giving, engagement, and social impact goals. We do this to bring more resources to the nonprofits that are changing our world.
America's Charities is a 501(c)(3) membership-based nonprofit. We work at the nexus of employers, charities, and employee donors.
Since 1980, America's Charities has been a pioneer in giving and engagement. In 2020, America's Charities celebrated its 40th anniversary.
- From the onset, we believed employees should be given a choice; employees should never be 'voluntold' to donate their hard-earned money.
- We were among the first to transform employee workplace giving from strictly paper pledges to digital platforms.
- We knew early on that 'giving' didn't just mean monetary contributions--that's why we encourage donors to give their time, talent, treasure, and testimony. Time, in terms of volunteering hours with nonprofits you love. Talent, in terms of donating your specific skillsets to advance a charity's mission. Treasure, in terms of actual charitable contributions. And testimony, in terms of advocating for the cause you care about and employee activism, aka joining with your colleagues to make a change.
- From the beginning, we recognized an employer's role in employee recruitment and engagement, we counseled our clients on the benefits and challenges of transitioning a traditional fall campaign to a year-round campaign, and we discussed why true workplace philanthropy happens inside and outside the walls of the workplace.
In our 40 years as a leader in employee giving, America's Charities has raised more than $750 million for more than 25,000 nonprofits addressing causes including education, human rights, hunger, poverty, research, animal welfare, veteran assistance, disaster relief, and health services.
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.
