Employees want it.More than ever before, the public is becoming aware of the urgent environmental challenges we face as a society. Employers and employees are concerned about environmental causes and issues that affect them and their families, our well-being and livlihood, and future generations.
Introducing an environmental choice to a workplace giving campaign typically encourages employees who did not participate in the past to get involved. What makes EarthShare New England appealing is its "one-gift" option: donors don't have to choose between supporting public health, clean air and water, land and wildlife preservation, and other issues. By making just one gift to EarthShare New England, their support will be distributed among all the causes EarthShare New England represents. On the other hand, if they have a preference donors can choose to direct their gift to one or more charities under the federation umbrella.
Empowering employees with expanded giving options has also proven to be a morale booster!
It's good for business.

Becoming an EarthShare New England partner sends a definite message - your workplace and its people care.
Health, environment, diversity, international development and relief, and social justice issues affect companies, communities, and families But did you know that these concerns are not fully addressed through the traditional United Way-only campaign?
Because most employee groups include a diversity of race, culture, gender, age, interests and beliefs, employees should be able to choose from a variety of charities that reflect their own interests. Recognizing this need, EarthShare New England and a number of federations covering a broad range of issues have joined together to create Charities @ Work, a unified, combined campaign program.
Working with Charities @ Work means a workplace can expand its giving campaign to include important federations whose member organizations address local, national, and international issues through a single source rather than multiple contacts. C@W helps its partners retain the efficiencies of a single option workplace campaign.
