Over the years the National Right to Life Educational Trust Fund’s pro life efforts have benefited from the generous donations of Federal (CFC) and State Employee campaigns. Another growing workplace opportunity is in the private sector.

Many companies and especially large corporations are conducting their own employee giving campaigns. To encourage giving, companies will often match part of an employee’s gift or even all of it.

The United Way used to be the sole vehicle for private sector employee giving, but now corporations have the capacity to run their own workplace giving campaigns. While the United Way still plays a part and, in fact, sometimes coordinates a corporate campaign, corporate campaigns now also offer employees a convenient payroll deduction opportunity to help their favorite charities simply by selecting them from a campaign list or writing in that charities name.

Last year, the National Right to Life Educational Trust Fund generated contributions from employees of companies such as Aetna, Ameriprise, AT&T, IBM, Microsoft, Morgan Stanley, and Wells Fargo. In fact, if your employer holds a workplace giving campaign, contact the Human Resources Director to find out if National Right to Life Educational Trust Fund is on its list. If it is not, perhaps they will consider adding them or, you should be able to write in the NRL Ed. Trust Fund. If a tax identification number is required, NRL Educational Trust Fund’s is: 52-1241126.

Thank you to all who have contributed to the National Right to Life Educational Trust Fund through workplace campaigns in the past! Your continued support to help educate communities and protect the innocent and vulnerable persons is greatly appreciated.
