Boyd Gaming recently launched Giving the Boyd Way, a new Company-sponsored workplace giving program that offers more choices and more flexibility than ever for our team members.
Team member giving has long been a part of the Company’s culture. To continue this important tradition, Boyd Gaming created Giving the Boyd Way to enhance the way team members can support causes important to them and their families.
Giving the Boyd Way offers several new advantages for team member giving. A key advantage of the new giving program is team members choice, as they are now able to support virtually any nonprofit organization in the United States through payroll deductions. Giving the Boyd Way is also more accessible, as team members can activate their account and access it from either home or work by visiting www.givingtheboydway.com.
The program also has no overhead costs with 100 percent of each payroll deduction donation going straight to your favorite charity. You also won’t be locked into your donation choices for the entire year, and can increase, decrease, or change your charitable selections at any time.
Boyd Gaming team members can participate in the Company’s 2021 giving campaign by pledging now through December 31, 2020 by signing up online at www.givingtheboydway.com. All recurring payroll deductions will begin on the first payroll cycle of January 2021, as well as one-time payroll deductions. For more information on signing up for the giving campaign, please reach out to your Human Resources Department.
As our way of saying thank you for participating, all team members who pledge during the current giving campaign will receive a free Giving the Boyd Way T-shirt in early 2021. We are currently taking votes for your favorite T-shirt design at www.givingtheboydway.com, now through Sunday, December 27, 2020. The winning design will be announced on Monday, December 28.
Changes to the Team Member Crisis Fund
With the launch of Giving the Boyd Way, we are making some key changes to the Team Member Crisis Fund. Starting in January 2021, our Company will be shifting to a nationwide Crisis Fund, available to provide support to all Boyd Gaming team members across the country. We have also partnered with a new crisis fund administrator – the Baton Rouge Area Foundation – which will review all applications and make all payment decisions.
Please note that you must opt-in to provide financial support to the Boyd Gaming Team Member Crisis Fund. If you would like to support your fellow team members through this fund, simply click on the special Team Member Crisis Fund link on Giving the Boyd Way.
Starting in January, team members who are seeking assistance from the Team Member Crisis Fund can apply online by logging into their givingtheboydway.com account and clicking on the “Team Member Crisis Fund” section. To learn more about applying for assistance, contact your Human Resources Department.
