Matching gifts can sometimes double or even triple your gift.

Many employers sponsor matching gift programs that will match charitable contributions made by their employees. Some companies also match gifts made by retirees and/or spouses.

To find out if your company has a matching gift policy, contact your employer's human resources office. If they participate in gift matching, they should provide a matching gift form for you to complete. Complete the donor portion of the form and follow the procedures your employer gives you. Typically, you will send your gift and form to someone in your company, who will then forward your gift and the matching gift to Ligonier.
