Workplace Giving

Workplace giving is a simple and effective way for you to support BIA-MA. Your payroll deduction and matching gift opportunities through your employer will help fund vital programs and services. If your workplace participates in a workplace giving campaign, you can designate BIA-MA as your preferred organization.

Matching Gifts

Many employers have matching gift programs that double or even triple charitable contributions made by employees. Contact your human resources department to find out if your employer sponsors a matching gift program. Some employers even match donations made by a spouse or retirees!
