Frequently Asked Questions
Employee matching gift programs are corporate giving programs that match your gift up to a certain amount.
As an example: You work for Boeing and make a $100 donation to Caritas Family Solutions. Boeing’s matching gift program requires a $25 minimum gift and matches up to $10,000. Boeing will write a $100 check to Caritas Family Solutions after you complete your matching gift form.
You begin by filling out the matching contribution form provided by your employer. Check with your employer to see if a paper form is required or if you can do it online.
Below are common steps to take:
1. Make a donation: Make a personal donation and keep your tax receipt. Many matching programs allow you to ask for a corporate match up to a year after you donate.
2. Check to see whether your workplace has a matching contribution program and specific guidelines by searching here (Double the Donation URL). If your company doesn’t come up in the search, reach out to your HR department to see if they do have a matching gift program.
3. Match: You will typically have two options if you do find your company using our search tool (Double the Donation URL):
A. Click on the link that was supplied, log in and submit your request electronically
B. Download your company’s matching gift form, print it, fill it out and submit it us.
Even if you don’t find your company through our search feature, it’s still possible that your employer will match your donation. Reach out to your HR department to see if they’ll match your donation.
