Employer Matching Is Easy Support

Last Updated on Wednesday, April 09, 2014

Last year, employer matching contributions donated during the 2013 Promise Walk season exceeded $10,000! With the 2014 Promise Walk season well underway, it’s time to consider how your employer might support the Preeeclampsia Foundation’s mission.

An Employer Matching Gift Program is one where an employer matches an employee’s charitable donation, usually dollar for dollar. Some companies call this a Cash Grants Program or a Matching Grants Program. These Gift Programs can quickly multiply the impact of one employee’s donation, often quite substantially. In some cases an employer may even match up to 2 or 3 times that of the employee’s donation. But even a 1:1 match is incredibly impactful. Along with matching monetary donations, some employers even have programs wherein the company will match qualified volunteer hours with an assigned cash amount.

It is the responsibility of employees to get the “Matching Gift” process started with their employers. Some employers provide their Company Match Program guidelines online, or will supply the information through the Human Resources office. There are even companies that will match donations of retirees or employee spouses. Most employers make this process relatively simple, usually requesting minimal documentation (normally only requiring an official donation receipt as well as completion of a quick online form or a one-page matching gift form).

Most employers stipulate minimum or maximum annual donation amounts, and may have other specific requirements, as well. It is the company’s choice as to how the Matching Gift Program is constructed. But any amount of matching gift will make a positive impact on a charitable foundation.

Please investigate your employer’s policies, and ask your friends and family members to research their employers’ giving program policies as well! Let us know if we can help.
