National Right to Life Educational Trust Fund Encourages
the Expansion of Corporate Campaign Giving Opportunities

By Marie Rivers

The National Right to Life Educational Trust Fund’s pro-life efforts have benefited from the generous donations of federal (through the Combined Federal Campaign) and state employee campaigns over the years. There is another workplace opportunity growing in the United States for private sector employees. Many companies, especially large corporations, now conduct their own employee giving campaigns. And to encourage giving, companies will often match an employee’s gift.

Whereas once the United Way was the exclusive vehicle for private sector donations, the emergence of corporate campaigns is on an upward trend. The United Way still plays a part and, in fact, sometimes coordinates a corporate campaign. Corporate campaigns offer employees a convenient payroll deduction opportunity to help their favorite charities simply by selecting them from a campaign list or writing in that charity’s name.

Last year, the National Right to Life Educational Trust Fund saw proceeds from employees of companies such as Aetna, Ameriprise, AT&T, IBM, Microsoft, Morgan Stanley, and Wells Fargo. If your employer holds a workplace giving campaign, contact the human resources director to find out if the National Right to Life Educational Trust Fund is on its list or, if not, you can write it in. If a tax identification number is required, NRL Educational Trust Fund’s is 52-1241126.
