What is a Matching Gift?
Employee matching gift programs are corporate giving programs. Here's an example. Let's say you work for Bank of America and donate $100 to Rachel's Gift. Bank of America's matching gift policy has a minimum gift requirement of $25 and matches at a 1:1 ratio. After you submit your matching gift form, Bank of America will double your donation by also writing a check for $100. Gifts from employees' spouses and retirees may also qualify for a match. It's a quick and easy way to double your impact! Check with your company's HR manager and ask if your donation can be matched.
