Matching Gift FAQs

A matching gift is a donation made by an employer in response to an employee donation.

Employee matching gift programs are corporate giving programs designed to encourage charitable giving among their employees. In turn, the company receives tax benefits and a boost to their philanthropic reputation.

Matching gift requirements vary from company to company, but they all require the employee who donated to ask for the match (nonprofits cannot ask on behalf of the employee; you must ask directly)

Here are typical requirements:

  • Minimum donation is $25
  • Maximum donation between $5,000-$25,000
  • Employee must request match within one year of donation
  • Some companies will also match a donation made by a part-time employee, retiree, or spouse

Check your company’s matching policies in the box on this page, or contact your HR dept.

The match ratio is the percentage amount of your gift that your company will match.

Most companies match on a 1:1 ratio; that is, they will donate one dollar for every dollar that you donated. However, a few companies will match half (.5:1), and a few will even double match (2:1)!

Common ratio examples:

  • 1:1 = You donate $100; your company donates $100
  • .5:1 = You donate $100; your company donates $50
  • 2:1 = You donate $100; your company donates $200

It’s a quick and easy way to double your contribution!

Yes! It’s not too late to apply for a matching gift! Many companies allow employees to submit match requests for 1 year following the date of the donation.

Volunteer grant programs are corporate giving programs in which companies provide monetary donations to organizations where employees volunteer regularly.

Each company has specific guidelines for their volunteer grant programs — search in the box above to see if your company offers this benefit and find everything you need to submit your volunteer time. You can always contact your company’s HR department for more information.

If you volunteer with us, it’s an easy way to provide us with additional financial support!

It’s still possible that your employer will match your donation, even if you don’t find your company on our list. Check with your company’s HR manager and ask if your donation can be matched.
