Giving Through the United Way
You can contribute to FSSBA via the United Way by obtaining a pledge form from your Human Resources or Personnel Department. The United Way Donor Option Campaign allows supporters to contribute to FSSBA through employee payroll deductions by designating their United Way donation to FSSBA, Donor Option #3745.

Employer Matching Gifts 
Have you asked your employer to match your donation?  Many businesses will match their employees' donations, which means that your support may be doubled!  Ask your Human Resources Department if your company has a matched giving program. 

Some examples of companies that match their employees' donations are: 

  • Kaiser Permanente
  • The Clorox Company
  • The Gap
  • Chevron
