Other Ways To Give

No matter how you choose to give, we appreciate it greatly.

Thank you for supporting Wake Up Narcolepsy and the Narcolepsy community.

Workplace Giving

An easy way to support Wake Up Narcolepsy while you work.

Payroll Contribution

An easy way to give to Wake Up Narcolepsy is through a payroll deduction donation. By giving through recurring or one-time payroll deduction, your donation is automatically deducted from your paycheck, there are no extra fees and because employees’ payroll donations come out of their after-tax earnings, their donation is tax-deductible. Recurring payroll deduction allows you to spread your pledge over the course of a year, in smaller, more financially manageable amounts to be deducted from your paycheck. Contact your employer HR office to learn how to set this up.

United Way

If your company has a United Way campaign, you can ask the company representative about directing your contribution directly to Wake Up Narcolepsy. Your United Way campaign representative can supply you with WUN’s donation code in your state.

Matching Gift

An easy way to double your contribution is through employee giving programs. Many corporations have giving programs in which they match employee gifts to qualifying organizations.

Contributions of any amount help. Use the search field to see if your employer participates in a matching gift program – as you may be able to double, or even triple, the impact of your gift! And your company may also have volunteer grants. Check with your employer for your company’s matching gift program.
