Ever wish you could make your gift dollars go farther? You can – through your company's matching gift program. Thousands of companies, small and large, have matching gift programs which double or even triple individual, tax-deductible contributions made by their employees. Your employer may be one of them.


The process is simple: ask your employer if your company participates in a matching gift program. If so, obtain a matching gift form from your personnel office or matching gift coordinator, fill it out completely and send it along with your contribution to:
