Benefits of Payroll Deduction

  • Your donation appears on your T4 slip, so you don’t have to keep track of a receipt, or multiple receipts if you consolidate your giving through payroll deduction
  • Payroll deduction helps the United Way CKL to keep their administration costs low
  • Allows donors to spread their gift over the entire year
  • Many people find they are able to increase their annual gift by setting a small amount aside each pay period or month
  • Donors working outside CKL may designate back to this community
  • Gives donors the option of making a lump sum donation or regular contributions
  • You can change the amount of your donation at any time by contacting your payroll office
