Workplace Giving

Payroll Deduction

For a convenient and sustainable way to give to Humane Animal Rescue of Pittsburgh, consider donating via payroll deductions. By adjusting your gift amount and frequency to best suit your needs, you can spread your gift-giving out over the course of a year and maximize your impact at HARP. Ask your employer if payroll deductions are a part of their employee giving program.

Employee Gift Matching 

Save even more lives through your workplace’s employee gift-matching program! Many companies will match their employees’ charitable gifts dollar-for-dollar. Talk with your employer to see if they will match your donation to HARP!
