AT WORK

United Way Workplace Campaign - #324 – Many companies support the annual United Way Campaign and you can designate TRAC as the recipient of your donation. The donation can be made as a one-time payment or as a payroll deduction throughout the campaign year. Your contribution support’s your company’s community involvement as well as TRAC’s mission.

Combined Federal Campaign - #25198  – If you are a federal employee, you can designate TRAC as the recipient of your donation. The donation can be made as a one-time payment or as a payroll deduction throughout the campaign year.

Employer Matching and Charitable Contributions– Many generous employers offer to match an employee’s donation. This helps TRAC in two ways: by increasing your donation to TRAC and providing your employer with the information they need to make informed decisions about larger gifts. Companies will oftentimes provide grants or sponsorships to TRAC if the request is endorsed or submitted by an employee. Please contact jthye@3riversadopt.org if you think that your company’s charitable giving program is a good match for TRAC.

Some employers provide non-profit organizations with donations based upon employee volunteer hours. Check with your employer today about their charitable giving guidelines.

Business or Individual Sponsorship - Throughout the year, TRAC has programs and events for families as well as the general public. By sponsoring a program or event, your sponsorship provides us with the resources for marketing, tangible goods, speaker and venue fees and volunteer incentives. Your business or family will be recognized as the Sponsor of the event on marketing or promotional materials. Contact jthye@3riversadopt.org for Sponsorship opportunities.

 

In the Community

Host a fundraiser for TRAC! Fundraisers not only provide TRAC with financial contributions, they are a catalyst to marketing our mission. Lemonade stand, jewelry sale, neighborhood race or a picnic, these are just a few ideas of how you can raise dollars and awareness at the same time! We will be happy to help promote your fundraiser through our extensive “adoption family”. Talk to any TRAC staff member about your idea.

In Kind Donations and Gift Cards – Ongoing programs, services and events require an inventory of tangible items. Consider making a contribution through the donation of a gift card that can be used to purchase supplies, as raffle prizes, volunteer incentives or used for a child in need to purchase items such as school supplies or toiletries. Gift cards can often times be purchased through the redemption of your credit card “points”. They can be mailed to the TRAC office and will be acknowledged in the same manner as a monetary contribution.

Please contact the TRAC office if you have an item you would like to donate or review our wish list to see our current needs.

 

Volunteer

Many of our efforts require more people than TRAC has staff! While some volunteer assignments require clearances, there are a number of opportunities that individuals, businesses and professionals can be involved in to help support our mission. Consider hosting a fundraiser at your place of business, volunteering at an Adoption Resources & Recruiting community outreach event, acting as a Ministry Outreach advocate in your house of worship, connecting with your State legislator or Representative, or sharing your expertise as a speaker at a program. Click here to see where we need help today!
