Is It a Match? Your Gifts May Go Further Than Ever

Looking for a hack to make your donation dollars go twice as far for animals in need? Your employer may be able to double your gift.

When you sign up for payroll contributions or take advantage of your employer’s matching gift program, you’re helping change the lives of animals at Dakin.

The Commonwealth of Massachusetts Employees Charitable Campaign (COMECC) is a workplace giving program that allows state employees to donate to designated charities through payroll deductions. When you pledge just a few dollars per paycheck, you’re making a significant difference for animals when they need you most. Our COMECC number is 109865 and you’ll find us listed as Dakin Pioneer Valley Humane Society. Ask your employer how to get started.

By opting to make regular contributions through your employer, you give a little bit at a time while supporting Dakin in a big way. Our programs and services that help keep families together rely on the generosity of supporters like you. All that, and you don’t even have to write a check or provide a credit card number.

Some employers even match workplace gifts, both monetary and volunteer time. Check out the list of several workplace charity campaigns Dakin participates in.

If you have questions or would like information on how to get your company involved, please call Molly Biechele, Associate Director of Development at 413-781-4000 x 130 or email
