Ask YOUR Employer About Grants,
Matching Gifts & Sponsored Volunteer Programs

Will your employer match your contribution to a favorite 501(c)(3) non-profit organization like Tomten Farm and Sanctuary? If so, your $25 contribution could magically become $50! Even better, do they provide you the opportunity to annually direct a generous mini-grant to a nonprofit organization of your choice?

Off-site Corporate-Sponsored Volunteer Days are another company benefit that more and more businesses (and not just large ones like Amazon, Old Navy, American Express, etc.) are offering as a benefit to their employees. Imagine being able to spend a day volunteering in rural NH on a Tomten Farm and Sanctuary project and still being paid for the day as you would if you were sitting at your desk at work!! If your company hasn't jumped on board with this increasingly relevant benefit, show your HR Coordinator this article from Fortune Magazine about the many advantages businesses are realizing through Sponsored Volunteer Days.

We're grateful that Cindy B. (shown above), a Bose employee, and Ann S. and Kendall C., who both work at Harvard Pilgrim, used their company benefits to help Tomten Farm and Sanctuary.

Ask! Suggest! It would be a shame if your employer offers these programs and you didn't know or take advantage of them. As a nonprofit with lots of projects, Tomten Farm and Sanctuary would welcome your help!

Cindy B. helps us support the cows in Tomten Farm and Sanctuary's Cow Initiative Program and so does her employer, Bose (yes, the Better Sound Through Research company that makes all that amazing audio equipment!). Here's just part of the email Cindy sent to let us know how she is helping. We couldn't have said it better. Thank you, Cindy and Bose.

Hi Jen,
Just wanted to let you know that I was able to participate in our 'Charity Choice' program here at Bose.

The company has a 2-week period every summer promoting this campaign that allows employees to donate to a nonprofit charity of their choice with a 100% matching contribution from Bose. So, I pledged to have them take a few dollars out of my paycheck, and donate to you, plus the matching contribution from the company.

I'm excited to have the chance to donate to you this way!  The weekly deduction makes it easier for me to do a larger amount than just one lump sum… and the company match is awesome!

Congratulations on your continued growth as a Sanctuary where rescued animals can be safe and happy!"

— Cindy B.
