Double Your Giving!

Many companies offer matching gift programs to encourage employees to contribute to charitable organizations. Most matching gift programs will match contributions dollar for dollar, and some will even double or triple the amount of your gift.  It can be as easy as filling out a simple form. To see if your employer participates in an Employee Matching Gift Program, contact your employer directly.
