Workplace giving programs allow employees the opportunity to make donations to the nonprofits of their choice through an automatic payroll deduction. Depending on the program and employer, the donation may be made either before or after payroll taxes.
The SETI Institute currently receives workplace giving donations from employees at Adobe, Apple, AT&T, Chevron, Microsoft, Netflix, and many others. Please contact your company’s HR representative to find out if your employer offers a workplace giving program and sign up to support the SETI Institute. The SETI Institute is a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit and our federal nonprofit ID# is 94-2951356. Donors who make automatic monthly gifts in any form receive special benefits as SETI Stars!
