Gift Matching Opportunities

Many companies sponsor matching gift programs that match charitable contributions made by their employees. Some companies also match gifts made by retirees, spouses, or persons serving on Boards.

These programs are a great way for companies to support the philanthropic activities of their employees while providing support to the communities in which they are located.

Double the impact of your gift by stretching your donation dollars. Most companies match gifts on a 1:1 ratio, while a few companies match gifts 2:1 or more.

Many companies also match religious organizations engaged in human services, such as disaster relief efforts, and other areas supported by the
One Great Hour of Sharing offering.

You can search our online database of companies to see if an employer you are affiliated with has a matching gift program.

If you are eligible, the search function will provide details on how to begin the process.

Most companies have matching gift forms available through their personnel office that you fill out and mail to us. We do the rest!
