Many employers sponsor matching gift programs to match charitable contributions made by their employees. Gifts from employees’ spouses and retirees may also qualify for a match. Employee matching gift programs are corporate giving programs.
If you volunteer with us, your company may also offer a volunteer grant program.
Here’s an example. Let’s say you work for Verizon and donate $100 to the National Kidney Foundation. Verizon’s matching gift policy has a minimum gift requirement of $25 and matches at a 1:1 ratio. After you submit your matching gift form, Verizon will double your donation by also writing a check for $100. Gifts from employees’ spouses and retirees may also qualify for a match. It’s a quick and easy way to double your contribution!
