Corporate Employee Matching Gift Programs
Corporate matching gift programs are charitable giving programs set up by corporations in which the company matches donations made by employees to eligible nonprofit organizations, including us!
Thousands of companies offer matching gift programs. A few examples include:
- Johnson & Johnson – Triples donations with 2:1 matches for current employees.
- Verizon – Matches donations 1:1 up to $1,000 annually
The impact of these programs can be substantial. For example, Microsoft matched more than $50 million worth of employee donations to more than 19,000 schools and 501(c)(3) nonprofits.
Want to Help the AJGA Even More?
Increasing fundraising from matching gifts isn’t new nor is it unique to the AJGA. We know many of our donors work for companies with matching gifts programs and we’ve set a goal of getting twenty-five matching gifts this year.
Go to www.doublethedonation.com/AJGA from any website browser to instantly access your matching gift eligibility and gain access to detailed corporate giving information about your employer by searching our database of companies with matching gift programs.
We wish we could submit the required matching gift form for you, but the employee must submit it. For more information contact Kevin Rinker at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling (770) 868-4200.
