The National Alliance for Choice in Giving (NACG) describes itself as “a community of local, state, and national workplace giving federations and funds that are working together to advance social justice, environmental protection, peace, human welfare and human rights.” Its organizational members “work with employers to create annual payroll giving campaigns” through which employees can contribute to local, state, and regional organizations professing a commitment to the foregoing ideals. NACG gives presentations to publicize the leftist organizations to which employees may donate money and thereby “build bridges between the workplace and the community.”

NACG programs include: “Training for members on workplace campaign development and conduct”; “Dissemination of ‘best practices’ and standards of accountability for workplace giving organizations”; “Consultation services to help employers design the best campaign for their employees and their communities”; “Campaign support services to national employers who wish to offer local choices in multiple states”; and “Publicity, education and research to advance the field of workplace philanthropy.”

NACG’s President is Jim Swanstrom, who also serves as Executive Director of Community Health Charities of Iowa, President of the Des Moines Area Religious Council, and President of Community Health Charities of Iowa.

NACG receives financial support from Changemakers,  the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation, the Cleveland Foundation, the Ford Foundation, and the Surdna Foundation.
