How to help through the EGP

When emergencies strike, King County employees want to help. Because of our relationship with hundreds of nonprofits doing work all over the world, we are in a unique position to respond quickly with a list of known and verified organizations that are participating in the EGP. We also know that our list is not exhaustive. We encourage employees to research all options and organizations because every action helps.  

General Information 

January – September (outside of the Annual Giving Drive)

  • Year-round employees may give by credit card or e-check on the storefront here
  • Upon authorization by the King County Executive, employees give through a one-time payroll donation and/or time donation during a specified timeframe. 

October - November (The Annual Giving Drive)

To designate a gift in support of a Natural Disaster relief effort, simply choose a charity that is responding and write/enter the KCEGP code. In the designation section of the form – choose "In Honor Of" and type in the name of the disaster.


During the Annual Giving Drive: Give through PeopleSoft 

Since PeopleSoft will only allow you to process one online transaction, we suggest you submit your disaster giving donation at the same time as your Annual Giving pledge. If you wish to provide other donations or pledges, simply download and submit the pledge paper form and email it to

Please note: You may only enter a charity one time in either payroll or time. If you would like to support more than one disaster event through the same charity, we suggest the following steps:

  1. Designate the charity.
  2. Name each disaster event in the same dedication line; for example: Hurricane Harvey and Mexico Earthquake.
  3. Since this is a part of the Annual Giving Drive, the total for time donations for all modes of giving is three organizations and 40 hours, unless you are in a use-it-or-lose-it situation, then you may give more.
