Do you want to make your donation go further? There are companies that will match donations made by an employee one-for-one, or even double.

What is the Matching Gift Program?

There are corporations that have established programs in which the company matches donations made by employees to eligible nonprofit organizations. When you donate to a qualified organization (such as SMC), the company matches it dollar for dollar up to a certain amount, depending on the company’s policy.

Step 1:

Check with your company’s human resources department to see whether it offers a matching gift program. You can also do a quick search here for your company.

Step 2:

Obtain a matching gift form from your company’s human resources office.

Step 3:

Follow your company’s procedure on submitting your funds and make sure to fill out the appropriate forms to ensure the match is donated.

Step 4:

Contact a board member to let us know that you have made a matching gift donation through your company!
