Workplace Giving

One of the easiest ways to donate to the Izaak Walton League of America is by contributing through EarthShare in your workplace charity campaign. You can pledge a small amount from each paycheck to help protect our nation's natural resources.

EarthShare manages giving campaigns in workplaces for environmental and conservation charities. As a member of EarthShare, the League is listed in a variety of workplace fund drives, including the largest workplace giving campaign in the nation – the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) for employees of the federal government and the U.S. military. We're also listed in many state and local government campaigns, several United Way campaigns, and a growing number of corporate and foundation campaign drives.

If you are an employee of the federal government or a member of the U.S. military, you can donate through the Combined Federal Campaign . Enter our name (Izaak Walton League) or our CFC (10620), then follow the simple steps.

If you are employed outside of the federal government and the military, talk to your employer about workplace giving options, or visit EarthShare for more information on how your workplace can host a campaign.

Workplace Matching Gifts

Many employers will match charitable contributions made by their employees. Whether you're making a one-time contribution or pledging a small amount from each paycheck, the impact of your gift to the League may be doubled or possibly tripled! Some companies even match gifts made by retirees and/or spouses.

To arrange for a matching gift, submit the request via your employer's online matching gift portal or complete your employer's form and send it:
