Have you thought about donating to NWAC through work? Your employer may be able to help you support avalanche safety in a couple of ways. 

Matching gifts

Many employers in the Northwest will match your gift to NWAC!  If you work for a large company (or sometimes even a small one), it may match your gift to NWAC. Check out this list of companies with matching gift programs or talk to the person in charge of workplace giving at your company to see if they will match your gift and increase your support of NWAC!

Payroll Deduction

Donate through your employer’s payroll deduction program. Many employers are part of workplace giving programs. You can have your donation spread out over the course of the year or make a one-time donation by deducting it from your paycheck. This simplifies the process on your end and ensures that you receive the tax benefit—and allows us to focus on avalanche safety rather than fundraising! 

If you work for federal, state, county or city government or work for a public university, NWAC will be listed in your campaign catalog. Look for “Northwest Avalanche Center” or “Friends of the Northwest Weather and Avalanche Center” listed alphabetically in the index. Write NWAC’s code number on your payroll deduction pledge form.
