How can I donate through my company's United Way Giving Campaign?
If you are an employee of a company that conducts its own employee workplace-giving fund drive, you may be able to double or even triple the impact of your gift. In order to encourage charitable giving, the companies will often "match" your gift-thereby doubling your gift to CSF. Some will even "double-match" your donations to triple the impact of your original donation. To have CSF included in your company's campaign, please request an application for CSF or call us at 718-570-0057 so that we can apply to be included in your campaign. Many employers sponsor corporate matching gift programs and will match any charitable contributions that their employees make. Your gift to CSF may double or possibly triple. Some companies also match gifts made by retirees and/or spouses.
United Way Donor Designation
If you participate in a United Way giving campaign that allows donor designations, you may be able to select CSF as the beneficiary of your United Way gifts. If CSF is not listed as a member agency, please contact the campaign coordinator to see if you can write in CSF to be considered for your gift. If you are able to write CSF in as your choice, please use our complete, spelled-out name (Chiari & Syringomyelia Foundation) and provide the following information: CSF's address (29 Crest Loop, Staten Island, NY 10312) and federal tax-identification number (26-1316274). As procedures do vary with each local or regional campaign, please verify that you have completed your designation correctly.
How can I give a matching gift?
Obtain a matching gift form and program guidelines from your human resources office.
Fill in the Employee section of the form, sign it, and send it to CSF along with your donation or, if you've made your contribution online, simply complete the form and mail it to: Chiari & Syringomyelia Foundation 69-39 Yellowstone Blvd #216 Forest Hills, NY 11375
We will complete the form and forward it to your employer's matching gifts office for processing. The company will send its matching donation directly to CSF.
If you ever have a question about your company's matching donation, contact your human resources department or feel welcome to contact us.
