Employer Matching Gifts

Does your employer match your charitable contributions? If so, you can double your impact at the Casa. Some companies also match gifts made by retirees and/or spouses to qualified 501 (c) 3 organizations. Before making your contribution, find out if your workplace will match it.  If they do, kindly let us to know, as employer payments may arrive separately and without your name. We want to be sure to thank you! Questions? Contact the Sustainability office.

United Way Workforce Campaign

Does your workplace participate in the United Way? If so, you can make a contribution to the Casa from each paycheck. Simply check “Restricted Contribution” or “Option C” on the United Way pledge form and write in “Franciscan Renewal Center” as the agency of your choice. Thank you!


The Casa is grateful for all gifts of time, talent & treasure. If you would like to find ways to give of your time and talent as a volunteer, click here to explore opportunities.
