What is a matching gift?
Employee matching gift programs are corporate giving programs.
For example: Let’s say you donate $100 to the PKD Foundation. Your company’s matching gift policy has a minimum gift requirement of $25 and matches at a 1:1 ratio. After you submit your matching gift form, your company will double your donation by also writing a check for $100. Gifts from employees’ spouses and retirees may also qualify for a match.
It’s a quick and easy way to double your contribution! Use the search tool above to see if your company will match your gift and to find everything you need to apply.
How do I request a matching gift?
Requesting a matching gift is normally a five-minute process which must be initiated by the donor. You can do this by filling out and submitting a paper form provided by your employer or through an electronic submission process. There are typically three steps:
Make your personal donation and save your tax receipt. Many matching programs will allow for up to one year after you’ve made your donation to request a corporate match.
Using the search tool, find out if your company offers a matching gift program and review the guidelines. No results? Contact your HR department directly to ask if they offer a matching gift program.
There are two common ways to submit the matching gift request:
– Click on the company’s intranet link provided in the search results, log in, and submit your request electronically.
– Download your company’s matching gift verification form using the link provided in the search results. Print it, fill it out, and send it to us. We’ll take care of the rest!
I made a donation a few months ago. Can I still apply for a matching gift?
Yes! It’s not too late to apply for a matching gift! Many companies allow employees to submit match requests up to one year following the date of the donation.
What are volunteer grant programs?
Volunteer grant programs (also referred to as volunteer matching programs or Dollars for Doer’s) are corporate giving programs in which companies provide monetary donations to organizations where employees volunteer regularly.
For example: If you volunteered as a team captain and spent time raising awareness and funds for the Walk for PKD, your employer may donate cash for that volunteer time.
Each company has specific guidelines for their volunteer grant programs — use the search tool to see if your company offers this benefit and to find everything you need to submit your volunteer time. You can always contact your company’s HR department for more information. If you volunteer with us, it’s an easy way to provide us with additional financial support!
I didn’t find my company on the search page.
It’s still possible that your employer will match your donation, even if you don’t find your company on our list. Check with your company’s HR manager and ask if your donation can be matched.
Can my company’s matching gift be applied to a participant, team, or event?
Absolutely! Matching gifts are a great opportunity to boost participants’ fundraising totals.
