Gusto Giving: Stand Up for Equal Rights By Donating From Your Paycheck – And We’ll Match

America is a nation of immigrants, and it is this trait that makes America strong. We have diverse viewpoints, welcome people with different perspectives, and stand by our values of freedom and equal rights.

I am shocked and appalled by the sweeping actions recently taken regarding immigration. We are creating more problems than we are solving. If you feel compelled to act, one of the best avenues is to support the ACLU and you can donate directly from your paycheck using Gusto Giving.

We launched Gusto Giving years ago so that employees could more easily make one-time or recurring donations to the causes they care about. Employers are also able to match donations and Gusto customers have donated to over 1,000 charities over the years.

From now until the end of February, we are matching any donations Gusto employees make to the ACLU and on top of that, we’re also going to match employee contributions across the Gusto platform.

Gusto will match ACLU donations from any employee at any Gusto customer. The donations must be made through Gusto Giving and Gusto will match $10,000 total across all companies. Employers can choose to match their employee donations as well.

We hope you’ll join us in standing up for equal rights. What makes America great is the ability for people to express what they believe in and support the causes they care about. We are a nation of immigrants and I truly believe that America is at its best when we stay true to our values of freedom and equal opportunity.


P.S. General Catalyst (one of Gusto’s investors) has generously offered to add $10,000 to our match. This means that $20,000 of ACLU donations from employees using Gusto will now be matched.
