Employee Matching Gift Programs

The employee benefit that keeps giving, year after year.

Adding a matching gift program to your company’s benefits package shows your employees that you care about what they care about. A matching gift is a charitable donation that is tied to a separate contribution to the same nonprofit by another donor, in this case your employee. Since the prospect of a matching gift encourages donations, many companies offer matching gift programs to motivate employee contributions to nonprofits.

You know the value of attracting and retaining a contemporary workforce. A robust benefits package often includes more intangible offerings that appeal to a new generation of employees. Matching gift programs say a lot about your company’s commitment to your community and to your employees. Best of all, matching gift programs from the Community Foundation are easy to establish and manage for businesses of all sizes.
