Ways to Help

Matching Gifts

Did you know many companies offer a matching gift program to encourage philanthropy among their employees? Gifts from employees’ spouses and retirees may also qualify for a match.

Matching gifts provide you with an easy way to potentially double, if not triple, your original donation! Many companies supplement their employees’ contributions to non-profits like ours (specifications of the match vary based upon each company). In fact, your company, a spouse’ s company, the company whose board you serve or even a company that you retired from may match your gift. Some may offer grants for the time that you volunteer with us as well.
If you are not sure if you qualify for a matching gift, please contact your Human Resources Department to see if your company offers a Matching Gift Program.

Corning Employees

The Corning Incorporated Foundation has an Employee Matching Gifts Program! You could double the impact of your donation by using the donor receipt we send to you and uploading that to the appropriate page via the Corning Foundation’s Website or the Corning Foundation link in Corning World. (Please note this only works for donations of $25 or more.)
The maximum amount to be matched is $7,500 per calendar year.

Additionally, if you volunteer for Catholic Charities, you may also apply for a grant to be given to the Agency. The Dollars for Doers Program gives a $150 cash grant to eligible non-profit organizations for every 10 hours an employee volunteers at the organization. The maximum is $1,500 per calendar year.

Clean Energy Partnership Program

Enroll by visiting our page on the Solar Farms New York site.

We are passionate about doing what we can to support and improve our community. So, we’ve recently become a Clean Energy Partner with Solar Farms New York, a community solar provider that serves our area.

Community solar allows everyone to enjoy the benefits of switching to clean, renewable energy without the expensive upfront cost of solar panels. Solar Farms New York works with developers who build large solar farms on unused tracts of land. Those solar farms generate clean energy and supply it into the local utility grids. Subscribers to these farms via Solar Farms New York then enjoy a monthly 5% discount on their electricity costs, just for signing up. It’s that simple.

You can make a positive change for a healthier environment and save money at the same time
What’s more, when you sign up and use our promo code, CCCS, you’re not only supporting green energy and a healthy environment, but you’re also supporting us! Our partnership with Solar Farms New York means that every time someone enrolls with our promo code, we get a $100 donation from the Solar Farms New York team. 

By signing up today, you’re saving money on your electricity costs and you’re supporting Catholic Charities!
