HOW TO HELP
The Winn Employee Relief Fund is a registered 501(c)(3) charitable organization. Donations made to the Fund are considered tax-deductible charitable contributions. Grants provided by the Fund are deemed tax-free gifts.
The Fund accepts donations by check, payroll deduction or online. Donations by check or payroll deduction are preferred because there will be no administrative fees charged to the donor or to the Fund. The names of donors and the amount of individual donations will remain confidential.
In February 2020, WinnCompanies Employee Relief Fund was proudly launched to support team members facing unexpected financial hardships. We are now in unprecedented times. The COVID-19 virus has disrupted our lives and has the potential to cause hardship for many team members. While we would like provide assistance to all, the Fund is still new and does not have sufficient funds to support all who may be impacted by COVID-19. We regret that we will not be able to support relief requests related to the COVID-19 crisis. The Winn Employee Relief Fund will continue to operate and review other requests for support.
Donations by Payroll Deduction
Team members of WinnCompanies can make one-time donations or recurring donations to the Relief Fund by payroll deduction. Even a few dollars from each paycheck will add up over time. A job aid on how to set-up a payroll deduction can be found in the “HR Documents” section of Winntranet and in the “Forms” section of the Dayforce portal for team members. Payroll deductions are tax deductible.
The Fund accepts tax deductible, online donations by credit card, PayPal, Apple Pay, Google Pay and ACH bank transfer. Online donors have the option of paying a small administrative fee associated with these services. Otherwise, the Fund will be charged a fee for each transaction. Donors who use the ACH bank transfer feature will be taken to Plaid, a secure and encrypted bank transfer service.
