Maximize Your Impact - Take Advantage of Employer Matching

Employer matching gifts are a type of philanthropy in which companies financially match donations their employees make to nonprofit organizations. On Giving Tuesday, this means your donation could have double the impact.

 

How to Participate:

  1. Check Your Eligibility: Begin by verifying if your employer offers a matching gift program. This information is often available through your company’s human resources department.

  2. Make Your Donation: Choose your favorite charity and make a donation. Keep a record of your donation, as you’ll need it for the matching process.

  3. Submit a Match Request: Fill out your employer’s matching gift form, available through your HR department or on your company’s internal website. Provide details of your donation here.

  4. Follow Up: Some organizations require additional information or confirmation. Stay in touch with both your employer and the charity to ensure the matching process is completed.

  5. Spread the Word: Encourage your colleagues to take part in employer matching on Giving Tuesday. Your collective efforts can significantly boost the support for causes you care about.

Tips for Success:

 

  • Early Submission: Submit your matching gift requests as soon as possible, as some employers have deadlines for submission.

  • Documentation: Keep all receipts and correspondence related to your donation and matching request.

  • Stay Informed: Policies and procedures can change. Always stay up-to-date with your employer’s guidelines on matching gifts.

 

Together, let’s make Giving Tuesday a day of extraordinary impact, harnessing the power of employer matching gifts to benefit our community!
