Workplace Giving-WLCFS

Workplace giving programs are beginning to organize their 2018-2019 annual campaigns this month, and many of them across the nation have adopted a “Donor Choice/Option Program,” giving their donors the opportunity to designate their gifts to a specific 501(c)(3) non-profit eligible charity of their choice. The Wisconsin Lutheran Child & Family Service may be eligible to be designated in these programs. Through God’s blessing and gifts from workplace campaigns, WLCFS was able to help over 4,000 people last year through their counseling care and senior services, so please consider designating gifts to this agency! If you have any questions, call 888-685-9522 and ask for Jeff Klocko, or email info@wlcfs.org.
