  • If your company uses an online gift matching platform, submit a matching gift request through your company’s portal. After this is initiated, they will forward the form to the Reds Community Fund for confirmation. The Community Fund will verify receipt of your matching gift and send along to your company for completion and disbursement.
  • Obtain the appropriate gift matching form from your human resources department. Complete the form and return to the Reds Community Fund via e-mail, fax or mail. The Community Fund will verify receipt of your matching gift and send along to your company for completion and disbursement.
    • Email: [email protected]
    • Fax: (513)765-7153
    • Mail: Reds Community Fund
      • Attn: Matthew Wagner
      • 100 Joe Nuxhall Way

Please note: employers will only match the tax-deductible portion of your gift. Which means, the total amount of your donation minus the fair-market value of any ‘gifts’ you received.

Employee giving and payroll deductions

If your workplace participates in the United Way campaign, you can designate your pledge to Reds Community Fund through United Way’s Donor Choice Program. Simply follow the instructions on your pledge form or write in Reds Community Fund’s contact information: Reds Community Fund, 100 Joe Nuxhall Way, Cincinnati, OH 45202.

Workplace Campaigns

Every year, millions of employees get involved in workplace giving campaigns to support a variety of causes. A workplace campaign is a great way to unite employees in all offices or branches of a company, and gives them an opportunity to donate and volunteer as a group. A workforce campaign is about more than just raising money for worthy causes; it also strengthens connections between employees and their community. For example, hundreds of employees donated $5 to a ‘Casual Day Fund’ at a downtown Cincinnati law firm for the opportunity to wear Reds gear on Opening Day.
