Workplace Giving

Cat Care Society is proud to partner with Community Shares of Colorado in workplace giving campaigns. Making charitable donations via paycheck contributions is a convenient option that allows incremental gifts to add up over the year. If your employer offers giving campaigns, please choose us as the recipient of your pledge. If Community Shares is not included in your giving options, email to discuss adding more diversity and choice to your campaign.

Employment Matching

Corporate Matching

Do you work for a company that encourages philanthropic giving? Employers understand the importance of giving and, more importantly, that their employees care about the impact they can have in their community. Because of this, many employers offer a matching incentive and will double – sometimes triple – your donation! Ask your HR department if your company matches. Send your company match to Cat Care Society at 5787 W 6th Ave Lakewood, CO 80214.
