What is a corporate matching gift:
- Corporate matching gifts are a type of philanthropy in which companies financially match donations that their employees make to nonprofit organizations. When an employee makes a donation, they’ll request the matching gift from their employer, who then makes their own donation. Thousands of companies offer these programs under their corporate giving umbrellas. 65% of Fortune 500 companies have matching gift programs. Think of the possibilities! Unfortunately, the average employee participation rate in the programs is only an abysmal 9%, meaning an estimated $6-$10 billion in matching gift funds is unclaimed yearly. Those statistics need to change.Just like it is relatively easy to gain funds from matching gifts, those same gifts are just as easy to overlook—that’s why only 9% of employees participate.
Why would I fill out a matching gift form:
- Matching gifts enables our organization to do more in our communities. When you request a donation match for your gift to Safe Harbor Center, you can provide much needed resources for twice as many at-risk kids, youth and families in our Golden Isles communities.
