1. What is a matching gift?
A matching gift is a gift from a donor’s employer that matches the donor’s original gift. Most employers match dollar for dollar.
2. How do I know if my employer has a matching gifts program?
Ask your employer.
3. Where do I get a matching gift form?
Forms are available only from your employer. If it’s not clear whom to ask at your company, talk to your human resources staff. Some companies have an online matching gifts program so you don’t ever have to fill out a physical form.
4. What do I do with the form when I’ve filled it out?
Refer to the instructions on the matching gift form, but usually the next step is to mail or fax it to the charity.
