Sixty UK organizations have signed on to match employees' donations this Giving Tuesday through Workplace Giving UK's payroll initiative.
"Sixty organisations have committed to signing up to payroll -giving schemes on Giving Tuesday as part of a match-giving initiative launched by Workplace Giving UK. The payroll-giving agency has pledged to contribute an extra £10 to the first donations made by employees at each of these organisations, which include Edinburgh and Canterbury city councils and the investment manager Aspect Capital, provided the employees agree to donate a minimum of £5 gross per month to a charity listed on the Workplace Giving website. Giving Tuesday takes place for the first time in the UK on 2 December and is being organised by the Charities Aid Foundation." -- Susannah Birkwood, ThirdSector.co.uk
