Matching Gift PRograms FAQs

What are matching gift programs?

A matching gift program is a corporate giving initiative in which companies match their employees’ charitable donations. When an employee donates to a nonprofit, the employee then can submit a request to their employer. The company will then make its own donation to the same organization, if the organization is eligible. Some companies will even match retirees or spouses!

How do I request a matching gift?

Requesting a matching gift is typically a five-minute process that must be initiated by the donor. For most companies, the search widget above will provide a direct link to their matching gift process and guidelines!

How long will it take for the matching gift company to process and disburse the matching gift?

It varies for each company. If your employer approves the matching gift, the company will send their donation by check or electronically. You can contact your company directly to find out how often matching gifts are processed and disbursed.
