King County employees can donate vacation and/or compensatory time to three nonprofit organizations of their choice. The minimum donation is 4 hours and maximum donation is 40 hours (unless you have excess vacation time). If you are an employee with excess time that cannot be carried over into the next calendar year, you may donate more than 40 hours.

Please Note: Time donations are income and are treated as such. It is the net cash value of the hours (after all mandatory withholdings, including withholding in accordance with retirement plans, federal income tax and the Federal Insurance Contributions Act) will be calculated, that is the charitable donation. Because the value of hours donated will usually differ from the hours on a normal paycheck, it will probably be taxed at a different rate than what you are accustomed to and may have year-to-date implications.

You will receive a receipt notifying you of the net cash value of your time donation. Time donations cannot be accepted after November 16, 2018.

Time donations are a 2018 tax event. You may donate the vacation or comp time that you have accumulated through the year.  Executive Leave and Sick Leave are not eligible for time donation.

All time donations are subject to department director approval.

To include your donation in a pool of money that will be distributed to ALL campaign participants that receive donations on a prorated basis, write 9999 in the code section and write KCEGP under organization name on your donation form.

WASHINGTON — The Internal Revenue Service announced today new guidelines for taxpayers to follow to substantiate donations to charities that were made by payroll deductions."This makes it easier for businesses and individuals to support worthwhile charities without fear of losing the deduction," said IRS Commissioner Mark W. Everson.
Notice 2006-110 explains how a taxpayer who makes charitable contributions by payroll deductions can meet the new recordkeeping requirements. The taxpayer should retain a pay stub, Form W-2, or other document furnished by the employer that shows the total amount withheld for payment to charity, along with the pledge card that shows the name of the charity. The recently enacted Pension Protection Act of 2006 changed the recordkeeping requirements for taxpayers claiming deductions for cash contributions to charities, including contributions made by payroll deductions. For calendar year taxpayers, the new rules apply to contributions made beginning in 2007. (IR-2006-186, December 1, 2006)


Payroll Donation:

To claim an income tax deduction the employee must have a pay stub, W-2 or other employer document showing the total amount withheld for the charitable organization AND a photocopy of the donor pledge card. This is needed to substantiate and claim a tax deduction. A letter prepared by or at the direction of the charity (stating the date, amount donated, and "no goods or services language") also qualifies.

  • Copy of Pledge Form or Printout from PeopleSoft
  • Last Paystub of the year

Both can be found by logging into PeopleSoft:  www.kingcounty.gov/mybenefits 

Time Donation:

  • Copy of Pledge Form or Printout from PeopleSoft
  • Letter from EGP and Time Donation Paystub and/or Last Paystub of the year. These were mailed to your home. You may email us the program at employeegiving@kingcounty.gov for a replacement letter. 

Cash, Checks, or other Monetary Gifts:

To claim an income tax deduction, the employee must have a bank record (cancelled check, bank or credit card statement) OR written acknowledgement from a charitable organization showing the date, amount contributed, and name of the organization.

All tax situations are different and may require additional documentation. The EGP cannot provide tax advice for tax related questions please contact a tax professional.
