Frequently Asked Questions

What are employee matching gift programs?

Employee matching gift programs are corporate giving programs in which the company matches donations made by employees to eligible nonprofit organizations. It's an easy way to double your contribution to us!

How do I request a matching gift?

You can do this by filling out and submitting a paper match form provided by your employer or through an electronic submission process.

How do I submit a matching gift?

1. Make a donation to a nonprofit.
2. Log into your company's matching gift submission website
3. Once logged in, search for the nonprofit that you donated to.
4. Select the appropriate nonprofit from the search result. If not found, manually enter the organization's details.

Are matching gifts tax-deductible?

While your donation to a 501(c)3 organization is tax-deductible, your matching gift is not tax-deductible. Only your personal contributions are eligible for tax-deduction. Each party involved (yourself and your employer) can only take deductions for contributions they directly made to the nonprofit.
