Matching Gift

Many employers offer matching gift programs to encourage employees to contribute to charitable organizations. They match contributions made by their employees, and in some cases will also match donations made by spouses, retirees and board members. Certain employers even provide matching funds to support employee volunteer hours. Most companies match contributions dollar for dollar, and some will even double or triple the amount of your gift! This is a simple way to increase the impact of your gift.
