Employer Gift Matching Program
Many companies will double or triple charitable donations. Some companies even match donations made by spouses or retirees.
Check with your employer to see if they have a Matching Gift Program. If they do, any time you donate or volunteer, notify your employer (either by you filling out a form or by sending a form to us to fill out) and they will match your gift.
