Matching Gifts

Double your Impact With A Matching Gift!                                             


What are matching gifts?


Matching gifts are cash donations made by your employer, or yo
ur spouse‚Äôs employer, that are equal the value of your initial gift. Many companies have Matching Gift Programs that DOUBLE individual tax-deductible contributions from their employees.

                                                                                                           What are Dollars-for-Doers/Volunteer Programs?

Many companies will match, in dollars, any volunteer hours you give to ECYS. Ask your HR department about your company's volunteer and Dollars-for-Doers programs. 

 

 Why apply for a matching gift?

It's an easy way to increase the impact of  your ECYS donations. You'll get credit for the entire gift - both your contribution and your company's match.                                                                                                                                                                                 

How do I know if my company has a matching gift program?

The procedure for each company is different.  Ask your HR dept. about your company's  program.  

 

How do I process the matching form?  Where do I send it?

Your company will give you a matching gift form to fill out and send to the ECYS office  with your contribution (check or online donation). ECYS will process the matching  gift form and send it back to your company.

 

What if my company doesn't use forms?

Many Bay Area companies no longer process paperwork. Usually, they have their employees request matching gifts through their internal websites.  Please contact your HR office for more information.
