Employee Giving: It's complicated
Should employees donate to the organization they work for? Should they never be asked or should they be allowed to join in philanthropic giving?
Based on a survey I conducted of nonprofit employees and consultants, I have composed an ebook which looks at all sides of a very contentious and complicated topic.
In this free ebook you’ll learn about:
🟣 Employee giving: The case for yes, the case for no and why it’s complicated
🟣 Attitudes about Board and C-level giving
🟣 How employees working overtime affects giving
🟣 The do’s and dont’s of employee giving campaigns
🟣 Can employee giving help when asking donors to give
And much more!
Learn from the survey data and over 40 sector experts. Whether you’re in the “oh hell no!” or the “let employees enjoy being a donor!” camp, this ebook will open your eyes to both sides of the issue. You might just change your mind…

“The topic of employee giving has come up throughout my career and I’ve viewed the issue from multiple seats, roles and positions within an organizational hierarchy. Reading Ephraim’s ebook gave me a more concrete understanding of the issue. The ebook will not only be helpful in molding your own opinion on the matter, but will also help you better understand positions and ideas from a variety of nonprofit practitioners at all levels of the sector.”

“I didn’t intend to read this ebook all in one sitting, but it was written so enjoyably that I had to read the whole thing from start to finish. Ephraim keeps you guessing on his own views on employee giving, but no matter which side you start out on – pro or con – you will start to question whether your position is the right one. And that’s awesome.“

“If you run an employee giving program at your nonprofit organization or you are considering starting one, this ebook is the first thing you need to read. The biggest problem we face is the answer to the question: What didn’t we think of? And this book more than answers that question. Chock full of insight and been-there-before testimonials from people just like you who have tried it and thought through the pitfalls, this is an essential primer for anyone considering asking for a gift from a nonprofit employee. If you’ve already started an internal giving program, this book is a desk reference on how to improve it.”
