Matching gifts are a type of corporate giving program that essentially stretch, often double, an employee’s initial donation to an eligible nonprofit organization. The first matching gift program began in 1954 when the GE Foundation created the Corporate Alumni Program that matched employee donations to schools and universities. Since then, companies of all shapes and sizes have created matching gift programs to give back to nonprofits and encourage employee philanthropy.
Donors can now search for their companies in this online database to find matching gift dollars or just contact our office and we will be glad to assist you!
