Ways to Give – Doubling Your Donation through Matching Gift Programs
Many donors do not realize that their tax-deducible donation to their favorite charity may be matched by their employer. Several businesses have matching gift programs that with proof of your donation, will match up to 100 percent of your gift, thereby doubling your impact! Sometimes the matching gift program extends to retirees too.
To find out if your company participates, talk to your Human Resources department. For businesses that do, there is typically a form for you to complete and submit with your donation. We take care of the rest!
While not an extensive list, below are a few of the businesses who offer matching gift programs:
- Robert W. Baird & Co.
- Banc One Corporation
- Bucyrus-Erie Foundation, Inc.
- Carson Pirie Scott Foundation
- Home Depot
- Johnson Controls
- Miller Brewing Company
- Northwestern Mutual Foundation
- RBC Dain Rauscher
- United Parcel Service of America, Inc.
- We Energies
- WellPoint Foundation
- West Bend Mutual
If your employer is not listed, please check with your Human Resources department. Your gift can be even more impacting than it already is, and it doesn't cost you a penny more!
