What are Employee Matching Gifts Programs?

Employee Matching Gifts are donations an employer makes to match its employees’ charitable contributions. Usually associated with corporate grantmakers, employee matching gifts often are dollar-for-dollar, but some companies will give double or even triple the original donation.

Why are Matching Gifts important?

Matching gifts are free money that employees often overlook. Corporate matching gift programs are a simple way to double employees’ donations to eligible nonprofit organizations. Many companies already have these programs in place, but most employees don’t take advantage of them. Don’t let easy, additional funding slip away.

How do I get my gift matched?

Each company has its own guidelines for employees, spouses, retirees, and widows/widowers. Most corporate procedures are very simple. Talk to your human resources department to obtain a form and guidelines or to find out if your company have a Maching Gift Program.
