Workplace Giving and Federal Campaigns
Does your company or employer conduct a workplace giving campaign (also called employee charitable fund drive) that allows you to designate The Marine Mammal Center for a one-time gift or payroll deduction? Workplace giving campaigns are a convenient and economical way to give, allowing donors to spread out payroll deductions over the course of the year. The Marine Mammal Center depends on significant pledge revenue from various workplace giving campaigns, including United Way, the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC), state, municipal, and independent corporate campaigns nationwide.
Most campaigns are conducted in the fall, between Labor Day and Thanksgiving. Be sure to look for The Marine Mammal Center in your company's brochure. If the Center is not listed in your brochure, make sure your local United Way will honor "donor choice" before you sign up, and if there is any question about that visit www.unitedway.org or give to the Center directly.
Are you a workplace giving campaign donor? If so, thank you for choosing The Marine Mammal Center. If you would like us to know that you are a donor, simply send us your name and address and mention that you give through Workplace Giving. If you have any questions about your gift, please contact our Membership Department at (415) 289-7338 or e-mail email@example.com.

The Independent Charities Seal of Excellence
The Independent Charities Seal of Excellence is awarded to the members of Independent Charities of America and Local Independent Charities of America that have, upon rigorous independent review, been able to certify, document, and demonstrate on an annual basis that they meet the highest standards of public accountability, program effectiveness, and cost effectiveness. These standards include those required by the US Government for inclusion in the Combined Federal Campaign, probably the most exclusive fund drive in the world.
Of the 1,000,000 charities operating in the United States today, it is estimated that fewer than 50,000, or 5%, meet or exceed these standards, and, of those, fewer than 2,000 have been awarded this Seal.
