Matching Gifts

Let Your Company Double or Triple Your Impact!

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.

 

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a matching gift?

Employee matching gift programs are corporate giving programs.

Here’s an example. Let’s say you work for Dell and donate $100 to the First3Years. Dell’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, Dell 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!

 

How do I find out if my company match’s gifts?

Check with your company’s HR manager and ask if your donation can be matched.

 

I made a donation a few months ago. Can I still apply for a matching gift?

Yes! It’s not too late to apply for a matching gift! Many companies allow employees to submit match requests for 1 year following the date of the donation.

 

What if I still have questions?

For questions regarding your company’s program policies, please contact your employer’s HR department.
