Employer Matching Gift Programs
Matching gift programs are charitable giving programs set up by corporations in which the company matches donations made by employees to eligible non-profits.
Matching gift programs are offered by companies across the world. In fact, about 65% of Fortune 500 companies (and many others) match employee donations to a variety of non- profits or offer grants when employees volunteer with non-profits. In recent years, the Seattle Cascades have been fortunate to receive grants from Microsoft and donation matching from both Microsoft and Boeing.
To submit a matching gift request, your company will ask you to fill out a paper or electronic form - that only takes about 5 minutes. Contact your employer today.
