Frequently Asked Questions

What are employee matching gifts programs?
Employee matching gifts programs are corporate giving initiatives in which companies financially match donations that their employee makes to nonprofit organizations. When an employee makes a donation, they will request the matching gift form from the employer who then makes the donation. It is an effortless way to double or triple your contribution to us!

Are matching gifts restricted?
The restrictions of matching gift donations vary from company to company. Some have opportunities for all employee types from part-timers to retirees. Others require that the employee be full-time. A program will have a maximum and minimum match amount.

Why do companies have matching gift programs?
More companies are offering corporate matching gift programs to prioritize corporate social responsibility (CSR). Through these programs, businesses match an employee’s donation to select nonprofits and double, or sometime even triple the impact of their gift.
