Many employers offer matching gift programs through which the company will make a separate gift that is equal, double or even triple the amount of your gift. Contact your Human Resources Department to learn more about their matching gift program. If available, they will provide you with the necessary forms to be completed and submitted along with your gift. One-time gifts, gifts of securities, and tributes and special gifts are all eligible for matching funds from employers.
