If your company offers a matching gift program for employees who support charities, your gift could be doubled. Use the search box below to see if an employer is a participating company.
Does your company have a matching gift policy? This can be a great way to amplify the impact and reach of your charitable giving, says long-time JAF donor Lyn Anderson (below, middle):
“Being able to share something I have with someone in need has always been a part of my life. From the time I was young, my parents taught me to help others, and it has remained with me into my adulthood,” she says. “My first objective when making contributions is to give locally, hence my commitment to JAF, and my second objective is to maximize what I can give. Over the years I have been able to increase my giving to JAF by taking advantage of the matching gift program my company offers. The matching gift program is an easy way to double my contributions to JAF, which, in turn, allows JAF to help more families in need. It is a win-win situation for everyone!
I always remember what it was like as a kid to get a quarter from the tooth fairy, and then my Grandmother would give me a matching quarter. It was like winning the lottery,” Lyn recalls. “That is how I feel about using the matching gift program. It is being able to give twice as much to help twice as many people! I strongly recommend to those who have a matching gift program available to them to take advantage of it. Your company’s matching gift really does make a difference!”
