Workplace Giving

Support EOI through your workplace: Workplace giving (payroll deduction) is an easy way to support the Economic Opportunity Institute’s work in building an economy that works for everyone.

Maximize your gift with an employer match: Many companies and agencies also offer matching programs, which double and sometimes triple the impact of your donation! Ask your company’s human resources office whether a matching opportunity is available.

For questions, or to have an EOI staff member speak at your workplace giving event, contact Sam Hatzenbeler, EOI Development Manager, via email or by phone: (206) 529-6375.
