You can further increase the impact of your gift if your employer offers a matching gift program. Many employers offer this program, which matches the funds you donate, doubling the impact of your gift. Corporate matching gifts are donations that your employer makes on your behalf to match your charitable contributions. Employers most often match dollar-for-dollar, even for retired employees.
To make it easy, we’ve put together a list of many employers that offer a matching program (this is not comprehensive). Consider the Corporate Matching Gifts list (PDF) and ask your company for the matching gift form!
