If you haven’t realized by now - employee giving is not a means to an end by itself - it’s the beginning of something much bigger. When you engage your employee base in pure philanthropy, you unlock unbelievable potential for building upon your successes. This module introduces the ways to parlay employee giving into year-round fundraising momentum beyond the walls of your organization.
We introduce best practices of using social media, crowdfunding and intertwining employee giving into your direct mail outreach and planned giving programs. Outside of using employee giving for leverage of other solicitations, the infrastructure you create though this process will carry your entire operation forward by creating a rhythm of impactful stories, stewardship and deeper relationships across your organization.
We talk through the best ways to analyze and share your results, benchmark your efforts and continue employee outreach throughout the year. This module syncs everything together and gives you the framework for extending your results beyond.

What began as a simple plan to disrupt a lackluster employee giving effort at Oklahoma’s largest healthcare system resulted in creating a best-in-class program that has experienced 10x growth and raised millions of dollars for the hospital and mobilized an army of engaged caregivers. The success of this unique campaign approach led Jon & Becky to sharing their development process with peers across the country at industry conferences, webinars and live events. While connecting with development professionals across the country, they continually saw the need for a comprehensive, accessible training on something so cornerstone to a thriving nonrprofit healthcare system: employee giving.
Enter the EGC Masterclass - Jon and Becky have compiled their comprehensive curriculum to teach the methodology, mindsets and actions required to grow a successful, disruptive employee giving campaign at your own organization. The EGC Masterclass officially launched in early 2019 to more than a dozen healthcare organizations. These trailblazers are implementing tactics learned into their own organizations, resulting in gains in participation and dollars raised. We are eager to see your impact uprising as you join us on this meaningful journey - we hope you will join us!
