Companies and their employees can help Operation Smile Canada transform lives and give new smiles in several ways – through matching gifts, payroll deduction or an employee motivation program.
Matching gifts can sometimes double or even triple your donation.
Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match charitable contributions made by their employees. To find out if your company has a matching gift policy, please enter you company's name below:
If your company matches you may be able to access the forms directly through the search. Follow the set procedure, and Operation Smile will be happy to assist. The impact of your gift may be doubled or possibly tripled! Some companies match gifts made by retirees and/or spouses.
For questions about Employer Matching Gifts, please contact us.
We can help you set up workplace giving at your business, by establishing a payroll deduction program. Employees can designate a dollar amount or percentage of their pay to go to Operation Smile each pay period. Please feel free to have your Human Resources Department contact us for assistance at 905-470-6861.
Employee Motivation Programs
There are many ways to motivate employees at work and help children waiting for surgery at the same time.
• At an employee staff meeting play a smile story of a child helped by Operation Smile (available on YouTube or DVD). Donations can be collected or made online.
• Hold a special "casual dress" day. Let each employee pay $10 to wear jeans and donate the funds to Operation Smile.
• Have an inter-departmental or site competition to each raise $240 to help pay for a child to have surgery. Count the smiles across the entire organization and celebrate the lives that have been transformed.
For help with these employee motivation events or for other fundraising ideas, please visit our Community Fundraising page, email us, or call 888-677-6453, Monday - Friday 8:30 a.m. - 5:30 p.m. ET.
