What are matching gifts?
Matching gifts are a type of corporate philanthropy that allows donors giving smaller donations the opportunity to maximize the impact of their donation on an organization.
In a matching gifts program, a company donates to a nonprofit organization in response to one of their employees giving a gift.
These gifts can range in maximum size and ratio, but many companies will match an employee’s donation at a 1:1 ratio, starting at $25.
If the company you work for matches gifts to nonprofits, please apply with your HR person and tell them you want the company to match your gift donation.a
