Workplace Giving

Many community-minded companies in our region have employee giving campaigns during which employees can make a one-time gift to Forward Stride or give through payroll deductions. Dollars can also be donated to Forward Stride through workplace charitable campaigns such as United Way by choosing Forward Stride as a recipient on your pledge form. Code numbers vary among local chapters of the United Way. Please check with your workplace-giving administrator to ensure that your contribution goes to Forward Stride.

Employer Matching

If you work for, or are retired from, one of the many community-minded companies that match employee donations to nonprofit organizations, your contribution to Forward Stride could have twice the impact! Some companies may even pay for your volunteer time in the form of a donation to Forward Stride. Contact your human resources office to find out how your company can match your donation of time or money. If you require any information from us, feel free to reach out to our office:
