Double your donations with gifts from companies that match employee donations! These days it’s quite common for companies have a matching gift program in place. This means that your donors may be able to have their donation matched by their employer – effectively doubling their contribution towards your fundraising goal. If you or someone you know works at any company that matches donations, be sure to ask a matching gift donation!

Congrats, you just doubled the donation!
Please Note: There are a couple of things to remember when asking your donors to inquire about matching their donations.
- We cannot add an “unconfirmed gift” to your fundraising page unless the matching gift paperwork is received. This is a step your donor will have to take to ensure you’ll be able to double their donation.
- Matching gifts are a fantastic way to maximize your fundraising efforts. Don’t hesitate to remind your donors about this option!
- If you work for a company that does matching gifts, ask as many coworkers as possible for a donation and company match and watch your fundraising SOAR!
