What Is a Matching Gift?

Many companies offer matching gift programs to promote charitability among their employees. These gift-matching programs can double or even triple the impact of your donation. Some companies even match gifts made by spouses and retirees, as well as volunteer hours. If you’re looking for an effective—and easy—way to maximize your impact, ask your company’s community relations or corporate social responsibility (CSR) department about the gift matching programs it offers.

Corporate matching gift programs will match tax-deductible contributions made by an employee to eligible nonprofit organizations — at no additional cost. For example, if you donate $1,000 to OneFamily, your employer’s matching gift brings the total amount of dollars donated to $2,000.
