Words from our corporate donors whose employees voted to support CATF

“This donation stems from our Annual Thank You Day in September, with a mission to appreciate our employees and teams, and provide an opportunity for them to thank each other. This year, we asked our employees to give thanks/shout-outs to each other, and for each one given, we would donate $5 to a charity. We’ve had some colleagues donate to you and suggested that we choose your organization this year.”

KPMG International Services Ltd

“We are proud supporters of Clean Air Task Force, a global nonprofit with the bold ideas needed to address climate change. Their solutions are based on scientific evidence, intellectual integrity, and pragmatism, as the climate crisis is a complex challenge and stakes are too high to limit our options.”

Sekisui Diagnostics

“Each year we make a corporate donation in lieu of holiday gifts, this year we have chosen your organization, Clean Air Task Force. Climate change is important to us at Centigrade and we value your independence to help finance research, public advocacy, and partnerships within the private sector.”

Workplace giving FAQs

What is workplace giving?

Workplace giving is a low-cost and efficient way for employees to make tax-deductible donations to charities through payroll contributions. Workplace giving programs are also commonly referred to as corporate giving programs or employee giving programs. Employees determine the charities they choose to support and pledge a tax-deductible (if applicable in their country) donation amount. The pledged donation amount is automatically deducted from payroll, offering a convenient means of giving.

What are the benefits of workplace giving?

Ongoing payroll contributions provide a much-needed, steady stream of revenue to charities to further their work and impact. Workplace giving contributes an estimated $5 billion to U.S. charities each year. Over 75% of Fortune 500 companies have a workplace giving program. If board members, volunteers, or supporters work for companies with a workplace giving program, this can be an additional source of funding for our nonprofit organization. Nonprofits also save time and resources by participating in workplace giving programs. They can receive gifts in a cost-efficient way without spending time soliciting donations. Instead, that time can go to doing good. Additionally a company’s employees tend to be happier working for companies that support generous giving initiatives and 69% of employees feel a stronger sense of loyalty to their employer if they have a workplace giving program.

Is my workplace giving program donation tax-deductible?

In these programs, your charitable contributions are typically tax deductible. Double-check with your employer to fully understand the tax implications.

How do I initiate my workplace giving donation?

Check with your Corporate Social Responsibility Representative, Human Resources, or Community Relations department to find out if your company has a workplace giving program.

How can my company support Clean Air Task Force through workplace giving?

United States federal government employees: Military and federal employees can give through the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC). You can find us under Clean Air Task Force Inc. The CFC number is 56168.

Private company employees: Many employees can give to the charity of their choice through their workplace giving campaign. If you don’t see Clean Air Task Force listed in your company’s campaign, simply type or write in “Clean Air Task Force, Tax Identification #04-3512550, Address: 1255 23rd Street, NW, 6th Floor, Boston, MA 02109” within the form provided by your employer.

If your company has a workplace giving program, Clean Air Task Force could be featured as a “charity of choice” during an upcoming campaign. We recommend checking with your Corporate Social Responsibility, Human Resources, or Community Relations team.)

What is an EIN?

The Employer Identification Number (EIN) is a nine-digit number assigned by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). Every IRS-designated, tax-exempt nonprofit organization has a unique EIN. Our EIN is 04-3512550.

How can I be sure my workplace giving donation reaches my nominated charity? How can I verify I have chosen the right charity?

To designate Clean Air Task Force as your charity, conduct a search by using our name, our address (Clean Air Task Force, 114 State Street, 6th Floor, Boston, MA 02109) or our EIN number (04-3512550).

Will employees receive a tax receipt for their donations?

Yes, but distribution will depend on the donation process. If your company uses a platform like Benevity, the receipt will be managed through that system. If the company makes the donations to CATF directly, we will manage the tax receipt for the donations.

Can my payroll deduction be matched by my employer?

If your employer has a matching gift program, then yes! Many companies match donations to a wide range of organizations, with few restrictions. Most companies match at a 1:1 ratio (a dollar for a dollar), but ratios can range from 0.5:1 to 4:1. You can check with your Corporate Social Responsibility, Human Resources, or Community Relations teams, or you can use our search tool to determine if your employer will match your donation and find the forms needed to submit your request.

Why Clean Air Task Force?

CATF is a global environmental organization working to address climate change and promote clean air by changing the policies, business practices, technologies, and narratives necessary to catalyze the rapid advancement of carbon-free energy sources and other climate-protecting solutions. No matter how much you choose to donate per paycheck or with a one-time contribution, your donations support CATF’s work to safeguard against the worst impacts of climate change and exploring all viable climate solutions that offer promise.
