“Having that match from my employer was a no-brainer. I can support the causes I feel passionate about and double my contributions at the same time.”
Donate Each Month With Payroll Deductions
Monthly givers are some of our most dedicated and committed supporters in helping feed hungry neighbors. Many employers make it simple and automatic to donate money to Second Harvest Heartland, through one-time or recurring payroll deductions.
You specify the amount. An automatic deduction each pay period makes it easy.
