Can Your Gift be Matched?
Many employers multiply donors' support through matching gift programs. In some cases, companies will match contributions from spouses, and retired employees. These programs are a great way to double, possibly even triple, the size of your gift. Please contact your company's Personnel Director or Matching Gifts Coordinator and include the matching gift form supplied by your company with your gift and we will do the rest.
