What is an Employee Matching Gift Program?
Many companies encourage their employees, spouses, or retirees to contribute to charities by offering a ‘matching gift’ program. The company donates funds to match your contribution to any registered charity. Matching Gift programs increase the value of your gift and have greater impact in your community. By taking advantage of your company’s Matching Gift program, you may be able to double or even triple the amount of your charitable contribution.
How Do You Get Started?
Find out if your employer has a Matching Gift program by checking with your Human Resources department. If there is a program already in place, they will provide you with the information you need to match your donation.
If your employer is not listed, please ask them to consider initiating a program in your workplace. Matching employees’ gifts to Palliative Manitoba is one of the eligibility points for our Compassionate Partnership Program.
