DOUBLE YOUR DONATION
What are corporate matching gift programs?
Corporate matching gift programs are charitable giving programs setup by corporations in which the company matches donations made by employees to eligible nonprofit organizations. For example, if a donor works for Bank of America and donates $100 to Eternity, Bank of America will double the donation by also writing a check for $100.
Thousands of companies offer matching gift programs. A few examples include:
- Johnson & Johnson – Triples donations with $2:$1 matches for current employees while also doubling donations for retirees.
- Bank of America – Matches donations $1:$1 up to $5,000 annually per employee.
- Home Depot – Matches donations $1:$1 up to $3,000 annually per employee.
The list goes on! Starbucks, Amgen, Boeing, and more! The impact of these programs can be substantial! In 2011, Microsoft matched $48.9 million worth of employee donations to schools and 501(c)(3) nonprofits. More than 15 million employees work for companies with matching gift programs! In many cases, you can go back and claim gifts given up to a year ago!
Double your donation in 5 minutes!
Matching your donation is easy! You can immediately assess your eligibility and gain access to detailed corporate giving information about your employer by searching our database of companies with matching gift programs below.
We provide you with as much of the following as possible:
- Up-to-date company policies
- Minimum volunteer hours required
- Printed forms or links to the online submission process
- Our nonprofit’s contact information (Tax ID, address, fundraising contact)
If your company isn’t listed, make sure to check with HR as there are many additional companies out there who offer volunteer grant programs. We wish we could submit the required form for you, but unfortunately the employee must submit it. We appreciate you taking five minutes to double your donation.
Your partnership will help us continue to train and send students out to make an impact all over the world!
If it wasn’t for Eternity, and the generosity of donors, I would be delayed from going into the mission field by student debt.
