Employer Matching Gifts

Many companies match their employees’ charitable contributions. This allows you to double your gift and its impact. To learn about your employer’s policies, ask your Human Resources department. Most companies will give you a form that you can mail in with your donation. We will complete the necessary information and return it to your employer. A few companies in the area that match gifts include Merck, GlaxoSmithKline, Verizon, GE, Advanta, Aetna, and Glenmede. There are many more, please ask your company today.
