Workplace Giving Policy
- The group must conform to state and federal laws pertaining to charitable campaigns in the workplace.
- Most of the funds should be distributed to local charities.
- The group must represent a consortium of at least ten charitable organizations.
- Donors should be able to designate their contributions to particular agencies among those represented by the group.
- If the consortium is itself a member of another charitable consortium which has been previously approved for a Lewis & Clark workplace campaign (e.g., is a United Way agency), it will not be eligible for a separate workplace campaign.
- The group’s values should be compatible with those of the College.
- The group must possess a broad appeal for employees at the College and the proposal for a workplace campaign must be brought forward to the College by employees of the College who are able to demonstrate widespread campus support for the proposal.
- The College will periodically consider all such proposals together. Such reviews will occur no more frequently than annually and will more typically occur biannually or tri-annually.
- The College will determine the manner and form of solicitation.
- A group’s campaign must be part of the College’s annual charitable giving campaign, sharing dates, programs, and mailings with the other approved groups.
- The College will periodically review the administrative burden of its payroll deduction plan for charitable giving.
- The college may at any time decide to limit or discontinue its workplace giving program.
